Fans are patiently waiting for any clue of what J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII will bring. Will the original cast be back? Who are the characters that will lead this new trilogy? Any hint of an answer to those questions will let fans begin to piece together the story of this new Star Wars trilogy, and guess where the series will go in the future.
Another major question that will inform that discussion is the film’s subtitle. Star Wars titles, and their reveals, are the stuff of legend. While nothing has officially been announced (nor is it likely to be announced for another year or so), one site is reporting a rumored possible title.
That title is A New Dawn. Star Wars Episode VII: A New Dawn.
The symmetry with Star Wars Episode VI: A New Hope makes this seem more like something a fan made up rather than official, but the site quotes a source as saying “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.”
Let’s say, then, this is a title Abrams and company have at least considered. We don’t know that, but let’s guess. What could the “dawn” be referring to? A new Jedi Order? A new Republic? The Sith? The Empire? If it’s a title that’s been considered, which is plausible, it could be a clue to what’s to come.
Either way, it’s a simple, classic title that could cover any of those things and many more. Plus, since everyone involved appears committed to channeling the charm of the original films, a similar title to “A New Hope” seems like a good bet.
What do you think of “A New Dawn” possibly being the title to Episode VII?
