perhaps episode 3 will be called "The Clone Wars". . .. .

Episode 2 was only the start of the clone wars, by episode 3, they should be in full swing, making it more appropriate for number 3 to be titled "The Clone Wars"

but then again, that would make sense, and this is George Lucas we're talking about. . . . wink

good gravy!
that better be a joke poster, because that is some crappy quality!

it looks like a junior high student made that!

If that's the official movie poster of Episode 3, then Lucas needs to hire a new poster artist, and fast!

Doesn't Lucas have drew strewsan do all of his posters? I was under that impression. Not just some PS geek. wink The clone wars would make sense this time, but it'll probably be something like "The conquering of the not conquering" Or something non-sensical like that. Attack of the clones did kinda grow on me though. The title I mean.

Of course that's not the real poster. I think I saw it a few months ago in the fan art section at theforce.net.

As for the title, I think 'Rise of the Empire' is pretty good, but a bit obviose. Every SW title has kinda been out of left field from what people were expecting anyway.

And 'Clone Wars' is already the title of the upcoming animated series.

And just for the hell of it, here's my idea for the opening scene, going for a kind-of book-end sence: After the opening crawl, tilt op to a Trade Federation ship flying by. Close behind is a Republic Cruiser (the Star Destroyer-looking ones). It overtakes the smaller ship and disables it. Cut to inside the ship, as the crew unsucessfully tries to fend off a Clone Trooper raiding party, led by Anakin.

Oh... my... god, I'm in this movie? LOL! Seriously, my real-life nickname is Obi (Long story) and I had Episode 6 on whilst at the PC. Every time someone said Obi, I turned round and said "WHAT!?" only to realise it was the movie. tard

Haha. You should star, obi. Also, Jarar, that sounds like a good homage to the original opening scene, however, I don't think anakin will be as far along as that. In the evil, i mean.

It's gotta be a cheap, cliche type title, that doens't exactly give away the plot. The Rise Of The Empire is good, The Last Jedi would be better.

It'll probably be something really stupid like "When Jedi Go Bad!"

Or some other name that sounds like a Fox show. Attack of the Clones, anyone?

Now, Rise of the Empire ain't all that bad, but in my opinion, calling the movie "Yoda is still cooler than all y'all" would explain things a whole lot better.

That's true, jarar, however... Since when is Anakin commander of anything? From what i know, he should still be obi-wans apprentice by then. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a cool opening. it's be awesome, but i'm just not sure about anakin leading them.
