The internet’s abuzz with the rumor that the latest Star Wars movie already has a title! Harry Knowles from Ain’t It Cool News reports the title is ‘The Ancient Fear’:

I ran it by everyone in the editorial chatroom. Beaks, Merrick, Quint, Capone… everyone… and they rattled their sources cages – and couldn’t get confirmation… BUT tonight… a source that I’m told to call Col. Mustard claimed completely on his own that “the working title” was THE ANCIENT FEAR….

He also stated that “it refers to Max Von Sydow’s villain who makes Pazuzu look like a pussy!”

With no official confirmation, this title is just a rumor, but as a pulp-style title, ‘The Ancient Fear’ fits right in with titles such as ‘The Phantom Menace’, ‘Attack of the Clones’, and ‘The Empire Strikes Back’.
