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...

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?

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.

In these fast interactive times, what better to do than immediately post a poll about it ?
hehe
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 !

Thumbs down

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.

If he got enough anti-title letters maybe he would change his mind. How could he let that title SLIP!!!!!!!!

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.

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...

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..

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

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.

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 ...


He ho to the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
rain may fall and wind may blow
but there still be many miles to go

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain
and the stream that falls from hill to plain
Better than rain or rippling brook
is a mug of beer inside this Took

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.

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.

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

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? "

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?

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

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.

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?
