Let the geek flow through you

And Episode III has a title

A pity for those of you without Hyperspace accounts because the clip revealing the new title was hype-tacular.

Just in case you were wondering why, a fellow geek laid it out pretty well


1)Anakin Skywalker IS the actual Revenge. Plucking the Chosen one to his side, is Sidious’ act of aggression in the title.

2)Destruction of the Jedi order is the Revenge. Payback. It’s the culmination of Sidious’ prequel arc.

3)Destruction of the Old Republic. Creation of an Empire with a Sith at the head. Also a culmination of Sidious’ prequel arc.

4)Anakin is the actual Sith lord enacting revenge in the narrative. (Just as it can be interpreted that Anakin is the actual Jedi who returns.)

So much spoiler information coming out today. It’s a little like Christmas. If you need me I’ll be at my computer having a nerdgasm.

  1. 1983? Oh … riiight, Episode VI was originally to be titled “Revenge of the Jedi“, right?

  2. Correct sir!

    See.

  3. I just wanted to say that I love the word nerdgasm. I think I’ll adopt that into my everday language, and maybe eventually our culture will shorten it to nergasm.
