Post Episode II title. What...the....hell.....

The new Episode II title has been announced as, "Attack of the Clones". Now, my question is, what has Lucas been, smoking, inhaling, eating, sniffing, licking, and or injecting?

Was his goal for this name to finally be a name the fans can hate beside Jar Jar Binks? Of all the names he could have chosen. WHY THIS ONE!?! This is a good reason why you shouldn't let your children decide the names of things.

Thumbs down

The Saddest title to come out of the SW Universe. But I find that if u say all the titles of all the Star Wars Movies, including EP.II, fast enough, it doesn't sound so bad. If you say it by itself, it's depressing. Well atleast we have Ep. III to look foward to.

I feel the same way, but think about it for a sec:

"Return of the Jedi"
"Attack of the Clones"

Very close indeed, eh?

Think about the titles "A New Hope", "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" as if they had never been mentioned alongside Star Wars. I mean just wipe the whole concept of Star Wars, or anything whatsoever to do with Star Wars, completely out of your head. (Yes, I know, it hurts! Okay, just try it for ten seconds. Wait, I couldn't make it that long...okay five.) Now tack those titles on to old sci-fi serial B-movies. What do you get?

Attack of the clones? I cannot express my outrage! This is probably the worst title possible for EPII! Argghhhhhhhhhhhh!

On a saner note, perhaps we should petition Mr Lucas to change it?

I see your point Redwing, but the thing with those other titles is that they at least sounded cool.

Attack of the Clones reminds me of the Clavin and Hobbes book, Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons.

Ok This will some how stick with us I dont know how but it will.


Iam not going to let some stupid Title keeping me from seeing Star Wars Episode II. Hey but atleast this title has a Meaning!


What did TPM mean what exactly?

Lets see the others they had bad names but they still were good Star Wars Movies. such as. Ill tell ya the meanings..

Star Wars Episode 4 A New Hope = New people New hero's new hope to save the galaxy.

Star Wars Episode 5 The Empire Strikes Back = The Empire Won all the battles in this film which gave them a victory.

Star Wars Episode 6 Return of the Jedi = Anakin returns from the lightside and he kills the Emperor as he was met too.

So Attack of the clones wont keep me from seeing Star Wars Episode II just because it has a stupid title.

I think GL has gone with the idea that something must go wrong on each film. With Ep I it was Jar Jar. He probably figured if I make the title really stupid then the movie will go smoothly.

Just more evidence that GL is nuts!

I'd never say this would keep me from seeing the movie but I can guarantee you that I will never call it Attack of the clones!!!

Remember a while back when GL said that EP II was basically a love story? Im not saying he should have called it EP II: A Love story, but he could have thought of something better. Calling this movie Attack of the Clones is the equivalent of calling the first one Attack of the Killer Robots.

Ok I got a positive scenerio here to think about:

Anyone remember before ROTJ was released that George Lucas announced the name of Episode 6 would be called "Avenging the Blue Sky" (or something like that. There were promotionals released with 'Aveneging the Bluw Sky' and right before the movie was released the real title of Return of the Jedi was announced.

Maybe George Lucas is doing something like that again.

No, I think originally ROTJ was to be called Revenge of the Jedi. There was posters made up for it & all! GL decided that the Jedi were not interested in vengeance so it was changed.
But c'mon "Attack of the Clones". Watch out, it's Dolly the Sheep!!!!! Every SW movie has had a cool name. "A New Hope", "ESB"(coz it kicked alliance ass at Hoth), "TPM" coz the Sith emerge after a millenia. I hope he changes it to something a bit more meaningful like something about Anakin delving deeper into evil or something....

Hopefully, 'Attack of the clones' sounds too much like 'Attack of the zombies' or something, this isn't supposed to be some 50's horror movie!

Y'know, this is the exact same outcry we heard when "The Phantom Menace" was revealed.

Personally, I don't care about the titles (except that AotC seems a bit of a mouthful).

But still:

Star Wars: Clone War (Maybe too redundant to use "war" twice in the same title.)
Star Wars: The Gathering Darkness (Possibly too "Episode III-ish")
Star Wars: Dance of Shadows (Combines two images: "dance" = romance for Anakin & Amidala, and "shadow" = darkness and stealth for the Sith menace.)
Star Wars: The Jedi's Heart (Suggests the conflict for Anakin's heart [and soul]: Jedi oath versus love for Amidala.)
Star Wars: Promise of Darkness (Anakin's fate becomes more and more inevitable.)

Personally, I'd prefer Dance of Shadows.

That may be true, but George Lucas announced it as "Aveneging the Blue Sky" to throw everybody off. He never intedned on that to be the actual name of the the film.

Ok, now i know everybody is a little dismayed with the announced title, but lets look at the big picture. We finally get to see some action from the famed clone wars!!!
And on another note, this title has lead me to believe that good ole GL is in serious trouble. He is obviously on some serious drugs, spendin' too much time with Robert Downey Jr. or something. So I think we should call for an intervention. If we could get a large representation of the Star Wars fan community down to Skywalker Ranch and hold a vigile for the next week, maybe we can show George the light, and convince him to spend some time in rehab, get his act cleaned up and back on track to making killer movies.
I only fear the worst, "Attack of the clones" = a bunch of Jar Jar Binks' running around saying "Mesa Jarja, mesa hungrie" or something, unthinkable like that.

Once again I am forced to use an over used saying: "Never judge a book by its cover" or in this case "a movie by its title." Lucas is a genius no matter how you look at it. In the relm of Star Wars, Lucas is god. Dont loose the faith, he knows what he is doing.

Everyone is acting like it's the end of the world. Keep a grip on reality.

I'm with the camp that will never use the title announced on Monday. That's the saddest SW-related news I've ever heard. "Episode II" will do just fine for me.

I'm also happy to see it is almost unanimous on this board that the title sucks. Some people at TheForce.net and elsewhere actually said they liked it (13% I think). The consensus seems to be that the title is pure crap and this gives me hope that GL is just playing a joke or trying to throw us off.

I can live with an attempt to create a love story within the SW framework. I don't think it will work all that well, but I can live with it. I CANNOT ACCEPT THAT THE TITLE OF THE LOVE STORY EPISODE WILL BE ATTACK OF THE CLONES. Again, it must be a joke. It must be.

I gather strength, comfort, and hope from the fact that the official site has not yet used "Attack of the Clones" anywhere on the site accept for the announcement and the title page. Until I see official posters up at theaters or the trailer, I will continue to believe GL has a fantastic sense of humor and has gotten us good.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Sorry but it has been anounced officially: from www.starwars.com:

Special Announcement: Episode II Title
August 06, 2001


starwars.com is pleased to announce that Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones is the full title for the next Star Wars film, scheduled for release in 2002.
Attack of the Clones joins The Phantom Menace, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as chapter titles in the six-episode Skywalker saga. It harkens back to the sense of pure fun, imagination and excitement that characterized the classic movie serials and pulp space fantasy adventures that inspired the Star Wars saga.

Ten years after the events of The Phantom Menace, not only has the galaxy undergone significant change, but so have our familiar heroes Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman) and Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) as they are thrown together again for the first time since the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo. Anakin has grown into the accomplished Jedi apprentice of Obi-Wan, who himself has transitioned from student to teacher. The two Jedi are assigned to protect Padmé whose life is threatened by a faction of political separatists. As relationships form and powerful forces collide, these heroes face choices that will impact not only their own fates, but the destiny of the Republic.
