this is very big news.... but you're right. i sincerely hope it's some kind of gag to get a feel for what people think. so far, it's definitely the most lame title they ever came up with..
It doesn't even SOUND right, does it ? And it sounds so incrediblý...obvious about the content of the movie that i'm inclined to believe it is a joke. Most other titles were more illusive. After all, they didn't name Episode IV 'Luke Skywalker Starts His Journey', right ?

hope it's a joke...

OMG It had SO better be! It sounds like Attack of the killer tomatoes!!:mad:

This quite possibly is the worst name ever created for any movie. I mean from all the cool and good names they could choose from, they choose that?! I hope the title doesn't foreshadow the movie....

So, if you report this as news, do I get credit for being the informant? ;)

Paragon_Leon
08-06-2001, 02:38 PM
yes you do, boba... ;)
Although i can't help but think that it's an april's fools-like joke somehow... does anyone remember how long before the actual movie the Episode 1 title became known ? That might give us a hint as to whether this is serious or not...

I already read a report that someone liked it and thought it was 'totally consistent with the rest of the titles'..
get real...

EEEEEEWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would've been better if they'd just use:

Episode II: Invasion of the Clones or
Episode II: Assault of the Clones

attack of the clones though...well, i admit i like it.

darthfergie
08-06-2001, 02:43 PM
Man I was sick of that title right when I saw it! So I emidiatly e-mailed McCullam the production Designer. I hope he heres me out or there is going to be hell to pay in the box offices. Poeple may say don't judge a book by its cover. do the majority of the people listen NO!!!:mad:

Lord JayVizIon
08-06-2001, 02:44 PM
yup, that title stinks. they better come up with something else......

Paragon_Leon
08-06-2001, 02:47 PM
In these fast interactive times, what better to do than immediately post a poll about it ?
hehe :D
Head on over to the new poll in this forum and vent that anger/happiness by voting for all Lucasfilm to see in hard, systematic coldness !

darthfergie
08-06-2001, 02:48 PM
Boy this topic is exploding, Boba Rhett you get bonus points in my book! I might have even gone to the movie without knowingabout this one (I doubt it though):mad: :evil3: :mad:

ZeroXcape
08-06-2001, 03:02 PM
I personally LOVE the title!! Honestly, what else could be better?

Well ... maby:

Episode II: Untitled
Fall of the Republic
Republic Downfall
Rise of the Sith
Galactic Supremacy
Republic Trechery
Clones, Clones, More Clones
Clonage
Déjà Vu

If StarWars.com posted the news, Lucas isn't going to change his mind on the name. Our only hope is that the site got hacked.

darthfergie
08-06-2001, 03:04 PM
If he got enough anti-title letters maybe he would change his mind. How could he let that title SLIP!!!!!!!!:mad:

Boba Rhett
08-06-2001, 03:36 PM
Yes, I think if enough people rallied against it, It could be changed.

Of all the titles he could have chosen,

Rise of the Sith
Veil of the Sith
Rise of the Empire
hundreds more...
etc..

He chose this. Yep, Old man Lucas has finally lost it....

I don't think this is a joke. This is about the time when TPM title was released. :(

darthfergie
08-06-2001, 03:39 PM
Lucas please HELP US HEED OUR ADVISE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!:ball:

Darth_Rommel
08-06-2001, 03:39 PM
All of Rhett's titles are better than "Attack of the Clones", and he thought them up in about 2 minutes, Lucas has about 2 years and he picks "Attack of the Clones" this sucks... :(

Kvan
08-06-2001, 03:40 PM
Or why not just have a symbol, like Prince
Episode II : $

darthfergie
08-06-2001, 03:44 PM
I think it would work. Oh what Prince changed back Oh well.:rolleyes:

Paragon_Leon
08-06-2001, 06:14 PM
I just checked www.attackoftheclones.com and it IS registered.. no word on if it's been done by Lucasfilm or not..

Theforce.net's forums dislike the title as much as we do..
it simply DOESN'T ring.. sounds MUCH too contrived and is simply TRITE.

I'll check the next two days, hoping with all my heart it's a joke to throw us off guard, so George gives us the REAL title after two days of agony..

AHHHHHH!!
This makes Epsiode II sound like a stupid '50's Space movie!

The clones from mars are coming! The clones from mars are coming!!!!!
What ever will we do?

Tie Guy
08-06-2001, 07:18 PM
How bout...."Episode II: The one where the clones attack and Anikan hits on the queen while also showing some dark side tendancies". I mean couldn't they be alittle more obvious :D

Seriously, THIS IS A JOKE. The name is, whether Lucasfilm is serious or not, it is a JOKE!!!!

I thought that "The Phantom Menace" was a pretty decent title, but they could at least be a little more through in their anem choice. Are they really that desperate on people with good ideas. I mean, we all could work at Lucasfilm, if we only had to think up names like that.

Young David
08-06-2001, 07:19 PM
It's just a new name. A year from now it's been accepted as a real SW title. I must admit that I was ... surprised when I got the SW e-mail just 5 minutes ago (i just came home).

But hey, if you think of it. The Empire Strikes Back is a pretty lame title too ...

Generalchang
08-06-2001, 07:21 PM
(Burp, smrugle, vomit) How much of a dumbass has Lucas become since the original movies? His wealth has tainted the thing that made him become wealthy!

Tie Guy
08-06-2001, 07:34 PM
Hmm, that is a very good way of putting it. It does seem like the Movies have gone downhill a bit since the Special Edition came out. However, this is just a title, not neccessarily a projection of what the movie quality will be. If that's the name, we'll have to except, and hope and pray the movie is better than the name.

Generalchang
08-06-2001, 07:36 PM
I agree with you on that...
Let's hope the movie itself is better then the title...

Superdog
08-06-2001, 08:09 PM
I bet people said similiar things when the titles Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi were announced. Think about how lame and corny those titles are.

Kvan
08-06-2001, 08:14 PM
How is Return of the jedi corny? I can see ESB is but RotJ...nay.

Star Wars is pretty lame too ... the title I mean. But not now, cause we're used to it.

Boba Rhett
08-06-2001, 08:35 PM
You did? never mind then. :)

Yeah, I suppose Star Wars did sound stupid but Attack of the Clones, it not only sounds stupid but it sounds stupid, dumb, lame**s, idiotic, moronic, cr*ppy, and sound slike a Flash Gordon Epsiode. "anyone mention that yet? :confused: "

Yeah I think someone mentioned Flash Gordan episode, but oh well it wasn't me :)
So do you think they will change it if enough people email them?

Boba Rhett
08-06-2001, 08:44 PM
Yes I do. If they all of a sudden had thousands and thousands of people mailing them and harassing them about the name. I think Lucas would think twice about the crappy name he has given Episode II.


And Georges Episode III possible names,

1. Ep. III, Give me more Money!!
2. Ep. III, Anakin Goes Naughty
3. Ep. III, A man a Plan a Jedi
4. Ep. III, Anakin Kills the Jedi
5. Ep. III, Twisted Sabers

Tie Guy
08-06-2001, 08:44 PM
I think that they would change it once they actually think about it for a little while.

I can just see some guy at his desk going. "Hey, i got it. "Attack of the Clones. Yeah, that will be cool." Then he just sent it to the Star Wars website and they put it up, not knowing who it came from. Maybe this whole thing is just a big mistake.

Boba Rhett
08-06-2001, 08:56 PM
Nah, George was probably sitting on his couch, dressed as an ewok, and heavily intoxicated, whatching Flash Gordan and then he said, "Hey, I got it!! Attack of the Clones!! Brilliant!!" Then he stumbled into work, carrying a shotgun, dressed as an ewok and yelling that that's what he wanted the name to be.

I bet the people working for him think he's a crazy loon and doesn't know what he's doing. A, "crack pot who hit the jackpot" if you will. But what are they suppose to do? Argue with him?

Actually ... after 2 hours ... I'm pretty used to the name already. It's still beter than "Jar Jar's big adventure"

Boba Rhett
08-06-2001, 09:08 PM
What? You can't giggle without being labeled a girl? :cool:


*goes off to giggle*


aaaaaaaaaaannnnndddd back on topic,

I wonder how long Lucas has had this name in mind.

I wish he had never heard it.
Can you imagine..."I'm Ted Copple and today the online world has gone crazy sending e-mails to Goerge Lucas to reconsider a title he has made for his new movie. It is:laughing: hahahahahahahhahahahahah oh this is RICH...The Attack of the Clones:laughing: HARHAR HAR HAR HAR...".... that is what I am seeing in the future and I hope it is wrong...:(

How about "The clones Strike"?

Anything would be better then what they had. I was trying to go for the same "feel" they invoke. "The Clone Wars" is good but it's a little bland....IMO of course :D

Kvan
08-06-2001, 11:36 PM
I'm not sure if these has been said (it's hard to look when the board is acting sluggish) But how about;
Rise of Clones (I think this one has been said)
Or
The Coming of the Clones?

jake
08-06-2001, 11:37 PM
Maybe we'll all collectively wake up from a dream and its actually called something else. Hell even The Phantomer Menace would beat Attack of the Clones... or perhaps ... The Clone Wars ??

If this isn't some sort of gag, I'm really wondering if SW movies are degrading as more are made, well the prequels at least, look at ep I, the title was acceptable, but the movie was crappy in comparison with the original trilogy(except the graphics of course.) Now if episode II is as bad as it's title, there's definitly some sort of pattern.

Well when you say Star Wars: The Clone Wars, it kind of doesn't sound right, probably the fact that wars is there twice, but that's still MUCH better then "Attack of the Clones".

TFNGuy
08-07-2001, 07:49 AM
I originally thought simply 'The Clone Wars', but that's a good point, having Wars in their twice, so I thought of "Rise of the Clones". Now that sounds more like it.

darthfergie
08-07-2001, 09:40 AM
With such a bad title the clones will probably go on strike instead of attacking.:(

How bout "Episode II: Not Currently Titled"

George George George what the heck is happening to you? Did he let his kids title this one or something. I think he must have been drunk, stoned or held at gun point to come up with something so corny. As we can already tell the people on these forums have come up with better titles. At this rate Lucas is going to have the third movie end with Darth Vader really being a clone of Anakin who died by turning his lightsaber on with it upsidedown. And that clone is more machine than man and more jar jar than Anakin. By the third movie Queen Amidala will be played by the annoying chick from Saturday Night Live (take your pick) and Obiwan will be played by George Cluney (spelling?).

I can think of a ton of stupid titles that still sound better. Episode II: the clone crisis, clone alone, E.T. clone home, the clonemeister, and my favorite "hey you look just like that guy". Sorry if some one else thought of these first. I hope George takes some time to make a new title. Remember Return of the Jedi started as Revenge of the Jedi then George changed it. So lets all hope.

darthfergie
08-07-2001, 10:48 AM
Remember Return of the Jedi started as Revenge of the Jedi then George changed it. So lets all hope.

I just heard a great one. One guy in my office just said, "why don't they just get the guys from N'sync in the movie to complete the crapiness". Hahahahahaha that was so funny I wasn't even in the conversation, but it applied to exactly what I was reading about.

Paragon_Leon
08-07-2001, 11:10 AM
i get the eerie feeling that IF this isn't a joke (I'm still hoping Lucasfilm will come out with a big 'gotcha' later this week), then Lucas must have done it a bit on purpose to steer clear of those taking SW very seriously. Sort of a counter-move, if you will...

I heard someone describe it as a title 'unworthy of a blockbuster'. They were exactly right.

darthfergie
08-07-2001, 11:12 AM
But why would they do such a HORRIBLE thing like a Joke when Lucas is usually serious:(

Paragon_Leon
08-07-2001, 11:16 AM
Actually, they called ROTJ 'Blue Harvest' to throw press off-guard and not get them near the site. they wanted to create the impression that it was a cheap B-movie they were filming..

Maybe if Lucas is SWAMPED with negative feedback will he rethink it. After all, they now argue that TPM also got slack. but i think it wasn't like this.

darthfergie
08-07-2001, 11:20 AM
If you look at this chat and others he is drowning in negative feedback. Besides if he goes back to the 70s-80s for an early strategy...well this is a changing time the news spreads VERY quickly and opinions are formed VERY quickly.:(

Tie Guy
08-07-2001, 02:57 PM
Like you said Leo, i hope that they come out with a big "gotcha" later, but i think that if they do, it won't be cause they were planning it, but cause of all the negative feedback they got. You know, when they saw that the name sucked they decide to try to cover it up with "gotcha." Anwyays, all we can do is hope this is a big scheme to make people mad. :D
