After “sitting on” the information for several months, Chief Geek Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News finally divulged the working title of Star Wars: Episode VII to be The Ancient Fear. Knowles first learned of the title back in January and asked director J.J. Abrams for confirmation, but to no avail. Since then, the life-long chronicler of everything geek held off till another inside source confirmed the title for him recently. In addition, his source revealed that veteran actor Max Von Sydow will play the part of a new villain, one possibly more sinister than Emperor Palpatine. Of course, these Star Wars information are still tentative since speculation had "Order of the Jedi" as Episode VII’s working title early on.
