That’s right, folks. J.J. Abrams and company thought they’d celebrate the end of principal photography on one of the most anticipated films of the decade by dropping its official title on Twitter! And what a title it is. Episode VII will henceforth be known as Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Cue internet fangasm!
So, how have the Twitter fans been showing their appreciation? By coming up with every hilarious non-official Star Wars title they can! Here are some of our favorite #RejectedStarWarsTitles so far:

We may not yet know much about The Force Awakens plot, but the title does support some fan theories that the film may focus heavily on Episode VII’s characters trying to manage a big change in the Force. While we’re sure to get more details soon, Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) gave the film his vote of confidence with this not-so-cryptic tweet on Sunday:
"No movie sequel is better than The Empire Strikes Back." You might eat those words for Xmas dinner in 2015. Joy & Indigestion to the world!
