As we wait for the hard facts to slowly, oh so slowly, leak like drips and drabs from the production of unfortunately J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars Episode VII (Will Ryan Gosling star?!?  Will the Skywalker and Solo kids show up?!?), we must now subsist, like beggars, on the rumor-crumbs that drift down from the table of actual fact.  And today’s tasty breadcrumb?  The possible name of the new Star Wars film.

TalkBacker (via /Film) is reporting that newest Star Wars film will be titled Star Wars Episode VII: A New Dawn, a title that clearly harkens back to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (an actual enjoyable film), and does nothing whatsoever to remind us of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (a deeply, deeply flawed and bad movie).

Now, be aware that this news has not been officially confirmed, with TalkBacker simply quoting a source as stating:

“There will be many potential titles by now, but yes that is a title I have heard mentioned.  So do with that what you will.”

Translation: It’s entirely wholly likely that this is not the title of the upcoming Star Wars film, meaning that we have totally wasted your time with a fan-generated rumor—exactly the reason Al Gore invented the internet a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

What do you think of the Star Wars rumor?
