More 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Rumors Warp Through The Internet

Rumors, rumors, rumors.  Sometimes I feel like that's all we write about.  It gets a little tiring, doesn't it?  Especially when the best ones are those which inevitably turn out to be false.  Didn't it sound awesome when Josh Brolin was in consideration to play Batman?  Good times.  Here's yet another round of the things, and it certainly won't be the last.  These are for Star Wars: Episode VII , and they include a possible title and some recurring elements we'll see.

According to Movieweb, a "reliable source" has said that an early title that's being considered is Star Wars Episode VII: A New Dawn.  The second part of the rumor is from a different reliable source that said this:

The (Millenium) Falcon will make a big appearance, 1.1 scale size cross section is being constructed over at Pinewood, along with a power plant set and the famous cantina (at Mos Eisley on Tatooine).

One thing that my time on the website here has taught me is that the ones that are most likely to be false are the ones that seem most likely to be genuine.  Okay, let me put that in a way that actually makes sense: When people make up rumors, they seem to be the kind that are either really vague or really obvious, because they want them to be believed. As a title, A New Dawn sounds exactly what a Star Wars subtitle would be, which actually makes me question it, because that makes it more likely that someone just made it up.  The same is true of the second part.  I don't think anyone would doubt that the Millienium Falcon would be in it again, that's like saying it'll have lightsabers in it.  The cantina in Mos Eisley isn't much of a stretch either.

So, could these both be true?  Sure, with the second rumor it could be true even if it isn't from a genuine source. Either way, A New Dawn certainly isn't a bad title, and is way better than The Phantom Menace.

I would venture that at least some of the rumors are DISNEY sort of "feeling out" what fan reaction would be OR they're putting out the most outlandish rumors first that way when news of the REAL developments are released reaction may not be so harsh because they've sort of gotten all the immediate knee-jerk geekazoid reaction out of everybody's system - so to speak. Remember, this isn't Lucasfilm putting it out there this time. Disney has a lot more older, sophisticated, powerful marketing system - or they can pay for one - than what Lucas could possibly imagine.
