Lukewarm 'Star Wars' Announcement Gets Lukewarm Reception
Disney has revealed the title of the upcoming film, but with surprisingly little fanfare. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" hits theaters Dec. 18, 2015.By Ben Lawson | November 6, 2014
In a surprise announcement Thursday, Disney revealed the title of the next "Star Wars" movie — and, unsurprisingly, the Internet freaked.
It was announced on Twitter Thursday that the upcoming movie will be titled "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Also confirmation the principal photography had been completed, although that was pretty well-known anyway.
Of course, not everyone liked the title. A writer for Vulture said: "This new title makes one wonder: How long was the Force asleep? Is the Force a morning Force or does it not get going until more of a 2 p.m. zone?"
