A new report has surfaced, claiming the working title of J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars sequel has leaked.

Ain’t It Cool News is reporting the new film is currently titled Star Wars: Episode VII - The Ancient Fear, and they claim to have independently confirmed the title. Of course, there’s a definite chance this is just a working moniker, and it could change before an official announcement is made.

If it is legit, it could offer some major hints about the storyline we’ll see from the franchise’s epic return. It could also mesh with reports the new baddie will not be a Sith but possibly some type of ancient evil. According to the report, the title refers to “Max Von Sydow's villain who makes Pazuzu look like a p***y!” OK, fair enough.

Take this one with a grain of salt, because there’s always the chance it’s a temporary title Abrams is floating for production to keep the real name under wraps until they’re ready to announce it.

What do you think? Do you want this one to be true?
