Rejected Star Wars Episode VII Titles

OK here goes. I just got access to the massive brainstorming session that J.J. Abrams and his team had for titling Star Wars Episode VII. I took a secret photo of the giant poster they all scribbled their ideas down on*. So here it is: I present to you the full list of titles they rejected before settling on The Force Awakens.


Star Wars Episode VII: The Sith Snoozes
Star Wars Episode VII: Shit, The Force's Alarm Didn't Go Off
Star Wars Episode VII: The Jedi Rouses
Star Wars Episode VII: The Empire Strikes Back... Again
Star Wars Episode VII: A Increasingly Modern Hope
Star Wars Episode VII: Some Kind of Menace
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Stiffens
Star Wars Episode VII: Morning Glory
Star Wars Episode VII: Dawn of the Force
Star Wars Episode VII: Another Return of the Jedi
Star Wars Episode VII: An Even Newer Hope
Star Wars Episode VII: Age of the Force
Star Wars Episode VII: Light-speed and Furious
Star Wars Episode VII: A Song of Jedis and Siths
Star Wars Episode VII: The Empire Attacks the Block
Star Wars Episode VII: 12 Years A Sith
Star Wars Episode VII: Valar Morgulis
Star Wars Episode VII: Game of Planets
Star Wars Episode VII: Into Darkness
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Breaks Bad
Star Wars Episode VII: Return of the Geriatrics
Star Wars Episode VII: Rise of the Trade Embargoes
Star Wars Episode VII: The Dark Side Rises

Personally I really hope they actually do go with that last one for Episode IX. What it lacks in originality, it makes up with by sounding badass!

Any other suggestions? I'll pass them on to my contact at Disney!
And for that matter, whose got any ideas for the sequels?
