Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo Reveals What 'The Force Awakens' Was Almost Titled

While Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens is out shattering box office records, Lucasfilm Story Group Member Pablo Hidalgo revealed that the film almost had a very different title.  At one point, the title "Shadow of the Empire" was considered for Episode VII before the crew ultimately settled on The Force Awakens.  The title "Shadow of the Empire" is very close to a title of a Star Wars "Legends" novel, Shadows of the Empire, which was released in 1996.


Ultimately, I think they made the right call going with The Force Awakens.

Do you think they made the right choice?  Would rather Episode VII have been titled "Shadow of the Empire"? Or something else?  Let us know in the comments.
