The title for the highly anticipated “Star Wars” sequel was unveiled Thursday, and, predictably, fans decided to have a little bit of fun with “Episode VII’s” title – “The Force Awakens.”

Walt Disney Pictures unveiled the title in a tweet announcing the film had wrapped, and some “Star Wars” fans on Twitter are using the hashtag #rejectedstarwarstitles to offer up some alternate titles.

Here’s a sampling of some potential “Episode VII” alternate titles.

“The Force Awakens,” directed by “Star Trek” alumnus J.J. Abrams, takes place 30 years after the events of “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi,” with original stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker joining Ford as part of the ensemble cast. The film is due in theaters Dec. 18, 2015.

One Response to ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’: Twitter offers up alternate titles

  1. Jim Katfud Hunter says:

    The title of the new Star Wars film should be: "Star Wars VII: A New Hope That It's Better Than 'Spaceballs'" or "The Attack of the Geezers" or "You'll Laugh, You'll Cry, You'll Kiss 15 Bucks Goodbye!"

    At this point, either Mark Hamill can play Yoda, and Carrie Fisher can play Jabba the Hut.

    May the Farce be with you!
