I like it... gives off the vibe that it has been 20 years and now some you-know-what is about to hit the fan.

I don't like that they have broken the pattern of the first two trilogies.

A title like this seems to imply that we're looking at a much bigger picture type of story.  And it may not be limited to the Jedi VS Sith conflict that we saw in the PT all the way through the OT.

You mean dropping the "Episode" naming convention?

No the parallels in the names of Ep 1 & IV, Ep II & V, and Ep III and VI.  TPM referred to Palpatine/Sidious and/or the Sith.  ANH referred to Luke.  The Force Awakens does not refer to a person or people.  I would think that they aren't going to drop the episode naming convention.

Maybe it refers to new people?  ???  Little early to assume it doesn't refer to someone tho isn't it?

I like it....  It seems to me it could refer to a lot of different possible things or people.  I dunno.

I just keep thinking that Han and Leia refer to their love-life as The Force and Han had to ask 2-1B for some Viagra for his ED.  And if the movie is longer than 4 hours... he'll seek medical attention.

It depends on if it is "The Force Awakens" or "The force Awakens".  Nathan P. Butler speculated that it could be an army that is awakened out of stasis.  If that is the case, then the title would fit the pattern.

I'm ok with the title.  It isn't anything amazing, but it doesn't stink either.  Probably somewhere in the middle in the listing of the titles so far.  That being said, it is just nice to get something "official" about this movie finally.  I know it is over a year away still, but it would be kind of nice to get a set pic here or character name there once in awhile.  There are rumors that a teaser trailer has already been cut and completed, so maybe we'll see something (likely very little) before the end of the year.  Wouldn't mind seeing some official pics of some of the original cast released, since we know they are in the movie (and of course, who they are playing).

I've been wondering what the timeline will be for trailers too. When the movies were out in May, we would get teasers in November and full trailers around March. I'm guessing we don't see anything until they attach something to Age of Ultron.

Why do I keep reading reports that Darth Bane is in this movie? Are they just misidentifying the character or is he completely being reimagined in a more contemporary context?

I think that is from the one leaked shot where the girl jedi is battling a guy that looks like Darth Bane. I think he looks more like Darth Malgus myself.
