'The Force Awakens'

Star Wars fans have a new movie to look forward to in the upcoming Episode VII blockbuster film -- and now have a name to go with it.  Disney announced the official title of the highly anticipated J.J. Abrams film.

'Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens' has been revealed as the movie's title as the feature film locked up its final days of shooting on set over the weekend.  Rumors of a teaser trailer dropping before the end of the year are also circling around media outlets -- with the most likely time for it to drop during the Christmas season.

The set also had some spoiler leaks during shooting, with concept images being put out for hungry Star Wars fans to see over the last few months of filming. 

Star Wars films have also been known to put out fake names prior to release of the official titles -- 'Return Of The Jedi' was titled Blue Harvest to throw fans and the media for a loop prior to marketing for theatrical release.

The new Star Wars film, which picks up three decades after the events of 'Return of the Jedi,' is headlined by original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), with new additions including Lupita Nyong’o (the best supporting actress Oscar-winner from 12 Years a Slave) and Gwendoline Christie, the 6-foot-3 British actress best known as the female knight Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones.

The upcoming 'The Force Awakens' is being produced produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and veteran Abrams collaborator Bryan Burke, and is set for release Dec. 18, 2015.
