Star Wars Episode II
has been named! Start the parade!
Starwars.com announced today that Star Wars Episode II will be titled . . .
Attack of the Clones.
No, I'm serious.
The site says, "It harkens back to the sense of pure fun, imagination and excitement that characterized the classic movie serials and pulp space fantasy adventures that inspired the Star Wars saga."
RevolutionSF Comics Editor Kenn McCracken says, "Me -- I would have called it Give Me More Money, You Fanboy Bastards."
The movie will take place ten years after the events of The Phantom Menace -- you remember, the one with the GOOD title? -- so the whole Anakin / Amidala thing will be a bit less creepy.
That title again: Attack of the Clones.
