Possible Episode II Title: "The Rise of the Empire"

Update: The diligent guys at called LucasFilm to check on this title story and Lucas representatives denied the report. As far as they're concerned, the movie is still known as "Star Wars -- Episode II."

Here's a quickie. Popcorn, by way of an Australian newspaper report, says that George Lucas may have decided on a title for Episode II. According to them, the name will be "The Rise Of The Empire." The validity of this report isn't 100 percent solid, so it might turn out that the title is something completely different (I'm pulling for "Episode II: Electric Boogaloo"). I'll be back later with more information. In the meantime, drop by the "Episode 2" section of the Filmfodder Forums to talk about the title and other "Star Wars" stuff.
