Another day, another morsel of "Star Wars" rumors, which is basically how it's going to go until 2015, so just deal with it. So what do we have today? How about the actual name of "Star Wars: Episode 7"?

If you've been around the interwebs the last few days, you've likely seen the "news" that George Lucas had been working on the treatments for the "Star Wars" sequel before the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney. But, that knowledge has been out there for a while. Last fall, Disney CFO Jay Rasulo revealed during a press conference following the sale that, “What we’re buying, along with the overall company, is a pretty extensive and detailed treatment for what would be the next three movies. The trilogy.” And apparently, they included titles.

Latino Review is reporting today that the rumored working titles for 'Episode 7' were/are "Return of the Sith" and "Rise of the Jedi." Thoughts? They're both kinda in the same mold as past names, but also kinda bland at the same time, though we suppose "Rise of the Jedi" has a bit more zing to it. Of course, whether or not either of these wind up as the final name remains to be seen, though as long as it's not "Star Wars Into Darkness," that's fine by us.

Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan has confirmed earlier reports he auditioned for the sequel. "I mean, everybody's going in on this project. They're trying to figure out what they want," he told Associated Press (and no he didn't wield a lightsaber). "That's another incredible franchise. It's pretty crazy! ... We'll see how it happens. I don't know how I can do everything."

Thoughts? Let us know below.
