I'm not really surprised. Basically re-using the scrapped title for RotJedi. I'm more surprised he's using 'of the' 2 films in a row.

Atleast it's better than 'the creeping fear'.

I've got nothing against the name, because of the connections to RotJ it has that Star Wars feel unlike The Phantom Menace which made ppl go wtf and Attack of the Clones which made ppl think of a b grade movie XD

Exactly. I don't know why people keep bitchin' about the title, it's fine. Like I said in the swamp, I'm pretty sure they would react the same with any title... people like to whine

This is one of the titles I have been guessing for a year or so. I am glad they chose the title name.

I can't wait for the Star Wars Episode III: Return of Darth Vader feature on the Star Wars Trilogy DVD in September. More previews! Can't forget the teaser trailer in November, 2004.

To be honest I don't think you're being fair by saying people whine about it too much. At the end of the day fans of the film have the right to pu their opinions across. Personally I think 'Revenge of the Sith' is about what I'd expect after a dodgy title like 'Attack of the Clones' for the second film but it serves it's purpose, I just hope this film is a bit darker than the other two - something along the same vein as 'Empire Strike Back'.

AWESOME!!!!!

Finally a title that comes out and I can say "this is not a crap title".

When the Phantom Menace name came out, I really did think that it was an absolutely shocking name.

Attack of the Clones seemed a bit crap as well. I've since got used to them though.

RotS (i'm officially the first person to use that acronym) is the perfect title - the complete antithesis of Return of the Jedi. Indeed, from reading the spoiler forum we can see a lot of similiarities between RotS and RotJ - it's just that the 2 are going in different tangets (luke resists, anakin does not etc).

Also, Return of the Jedi was originally going to be called Revenge of the Jedi, so it makes sense that he would apply it to the Sith instead.

I am well happy.

Also Doomgiver, the link was on the official Star Wars site itself, so no, its not a spoiler.

I think it's just fine and I can't say I'm too surprised. If I remember correctly, people have been using that name and a couple others pretty regularly for the last year or so. So am I happy? **** yeah, that means were getting closer and closer to the release of the movie!

i didnt think it could happen. i never would have believed it.


ME AND COUPES AGREE!

people really would hate every title for now, and come to love it later. i need go no further then "the empire strikes back" to make my point. we all love the movie, we all think the titles fine, but really LOOK at the title. its the equivalent of naming ep4 "the alliance hits first". give it a while to settle and everybody will be praising "revenge of the sith".

we're humans (most of us... looks squarely at ET warrior) we'll adapt. superman/batman/wonderwoman all had terrible names but they're all accepted now. think about it.

Well, a movie by any other name is still a rose.

The name is appropriate because in this episode, the Sith have there revenge on the Jedi by gaining control of the galaxy and eliminating the Jedi order. In TPM , Darth Maul says to Darth Sidious "At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi, at last we will have our revenge." It took them about 13 years from their self-revelation to the Jedi to their revenge, but it did happen. The revenge of the Sith is a perfect title.


Go big or go home.

For me, I felt that TPM was appropriate in the sense that it was setting up EP2 and 3 since there was really a phantom menace (being both Maul and Palpatine)



Attack of the Clones seemed a bit crap as well. I've since got used to them though.


This is also justified since the Lucas seems to go with what is happening near the end of the film for his titles, and for the 3rd Act, it was when the Clone Army was attacking Geonosis


RotS (i'm officially the first person to use that acronym) is the perfect title - the complete antithesis of Return of the Jedi. Indeed, from reading the spoiler forum we can see a lot of similiarities between RotS and RotJ - it's just that the 2 are going in different tangets (luke resists, anakin does not etc).


Actually, the minute after the AP (associated press) released the info, I said oh great, now we have a lucasfilm that RotS(implying both the new title and the fact that a great # of people have been somewhat disappointed with Lucas and how EP1 & EP2 were done)


Also, Return of the Jedi was originally going to be called Revenge of the Jedi, so it makes sense that he would apply it to the Sith instead.


I believe lucas decided on Return over Revenge since the Jedi are supposed to be portraying the good guys of the galaxy and when you think of Revenge, you think of nasty tactics and an agenda played out to exact pain onto another. The Jedi weren't like that.
I am well happy.

I's a predictable but good choice.

Honestly, the people who complain tend to be the oddballs who think hopeless fan names like Birth of the Empire or Fall of the Republic (LOL!) are good choices. Nothing anybody else has come up with is better then Revenge of the Sith particularly as it mirrors the final OT installment. That's probably why 90% of people are happy with it, because it works.

I think it's cool and like Nairb Notneb said:

Quote:

and I agree

Also:

Quote:
"Return of the Jedi" was originally to be titled "Revenge of the Jedi." Some advance promotional material even featured that title, but Lucas changed it later in production.

"This time, George tells us he's going to keep 'Revenge' in the title," Sansweet said.
That said on the CNN web site

I am well happy.
and i've always been under the impression that the jedi who 'returns' in RotJ is anakin, since the entire HEXOLOGY (is that even a word?) is about the little slave boy who conquered the galaxy only to have his son redeem him.

but their's only 1 jedi so they really don't have to much power. i think ROTJ now makes perfect sense if you watch the 6 movies in order, in EP.3 you see the fall of the jedi and in Ep. 6 their return.

I strongly support the new title!

I got the impression a past star wars insider member asked that question about why they changed the original name of Revenge of the Jedi to Return of the Jedi and the person who answers the Q and A at the end of each Star Wars Insider issue said it was something about Star Wars Episode VI being released close to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and both subtitles sounded similar or the same so he changed it at the last minute. That way people weren't confused.

How would anyone mistake "Revenge of the Jedi" for "Wrath of Khan"?

Nah, the "Jedi's don't take Revenge" story is the real one.
