It's actually "Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens".

Re: imdb get rid of 'Episode VII'

Whenever I try to decide on what's the actual title of a particular film, I usually go by the on-screen title, as another user said. There are numerous instances where the marketing material can change certain parts of the title of a film, like for example the posters for Twelve Monkeys say "12 Monkeys", yet the film itself presents it as "Twelve Monkeys", so I always go with the latter. Following that logic, for me the official title of this movie is Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, considering that that's what appears on screen.

Re: imdb get rid of 'Episode VII'

True. But then, Ghostbusters should be called Ghost Busters, since that's the way it appears on the title screen in the film....

Re: imdb get rid of 'Episode VII'

For marketing purposes, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
On screen it's Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.

So both are correct. From a certain point of view...




Re: imdb get rid of 'Episode VII'

IMDB now has Ep8 as "Star Wars: The Last Jedi"

Re: imdb get rid of 'Episode VII'

Because the movie hasn't been released yet. So far, that's the way it's been marketed. Once the film comes out, my guess is the title will be updated here.

No Episode 7 is actually called The Farts Awakens.
