Star Wars The Force Awakens: What Does The Title Mean?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

So, Disney and Lucasfilm finally gave us a title to Star Wars: Episode VII and it’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. What does it mean and what do we think of the title? Let’s discuss.

Star Wars The Force Awakens

First, the reaction across the world has been remarkably spot-on.

There has not been a rush to judgment that this is terrible or “that’s what they came up with?”

More often than not, people are willing to see the movie and are giving J.J. Abrams a chance to show us his flick and then we’ll see how the title fits what happens in the actual movie. It’s a novel concept, isn’t it?!

Then, there are the jokes.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, some have said, sounds like a Viagra slogan.

Others have commented, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens?” Really, I never knew it went to sleep!

But, what does it mean?

It’s hard to say but if we were to offer some conjecture -- it’s that after the defeat of the Empire in Return of the Jedi, there was not much of an enemy out there and so the Jedi could retire to a life of peace and (hopefully) prosperity. 

As we know from some of the rumors about the plot of Star Wars: Episode VII, Luke has to be found and thus begins our adventure. There is a disturbance in The Force and we’re guessing that is why The Force Awakens.

It’s time to strap on those lightsabers and get back to fighting evil.

Hey, it’s a theory!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives December 18, 2015. And now that we have that title and Star Wars: Episode VII production has wrapped, all we have to wait for next is… the trailer!

And let us know...

What do you think of the Star Wars title?
