Lucas already announced the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII a week before. And the movie is all set for the cameras to roll this month. The script has been almost finalized. Now a working title of Star Wars: Episode VII is required.
A recent report from AICN claimed that an inside source said that the title for Star Wars: Episode VII is The Ancient Fear. And the report also claims that the working title of The Ancient Fear refers to Max von Sydow's character.
However, Disney has not yet confirmed the news nor did the director J.J. Abrams talk about it. Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams wrote the screenplay of Star Wars: Episode VII while Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are the producers and John Williams is the composer of the movie.
The 13 cast members of Star Wars: Episode VII include: John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga and they are: Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. The movie will hit theaters worldwide on December 18, 2015.

I have to say the idea of Star Wars VII: The Ancient Fear, filmed on 35mm with Max Von Sydow as The Emperor's master, is a pretty good pitch— Dirk Phoetus (@ISeeAllWrong) May 7, 2014
