Star Wars: The Force Awakens originally had a very different title
The original title for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been revealed.
Though the movie has never been formally called anything other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Pablo Hidalgo, LucasFilm's creative executive, revealed on Twitter that Episode VII had a working title already familiar to many Star Wars fans.
Speaking to a fan, he revealed the original movie title was Star Wars: Shadow of the Empire, but that it was changed after producers realised that it was a title too similar to an old Star Wars novel.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in cinemas now and is available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-Ray on the right-hand side of the page.
