My titles:

Episode I - “Guardians of the Force”: Introduction to the Jedi knights; how they are initiated and trained.

Episode II - “The Horde of Peril”: Introduction and development of Obi Wan Kenobi; his involvement in the Clone Wars against the onslaught of the Mandalorian aggressors.

Episode III - “A Call to Darkness”: Introduction and life of Darth Vader; arise of the Galactic Empire, and the demise of the Jedi Order.

Oh something like this comes to mind:

Episode I - Jar Jar Binks Origins
Epsiode II - Jar Jar Binks Returns
Episode III - Revenge of Jar Jar Binks

The name Star Wars changes into Jar Jar’s Bizarre Adventure…

Joking aside, Rise of the Clones would be a fitting name for Episode II.

I laugh in the face of danger. Then I hide until it goes away..

Episode I - Childishness of the Midi-Chlorians
Episode II - Loveless Clone Cluedo
Episode III - Limbless on Mustafar

Rogue One is redundant. Just play the first mission of DARK FORCES.
Being surrounded by yes men: the hallmark of a corrupt leader.

I put some thought into this back before The Last Jedi’s title was announced, and ended up suggesting it for a couple of the earlier films. I wanted to keep the titles as Original-Trilogy-Star-Warsy as possible without spoiling any plots.

  1. RETURN OF THE SITH. Sith already a scary word, this implies an old threat coming back.
  2. Clone Wars only really start at the end. But nothing really happens in this one. So could swing towards the relationship between ObiWan and Anakin (MASTER AND APPRENTICE, emphasising the training and that each have their own arcs in this film), or even something force-y, like DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE, as enemy plans increase and Anakin gets tempted. Maybe LURE OF THE DARK SIDE. Or DARK FORCE RISING.
  3. TWILIGHT OF THE REPUBLIC: Implies the Clone Wars come to a major end, a falling, the start of a new chapter, but without giving away the plot like ‘Rise of the Empire’ might
    3.5) Rogue One is OK.
  4. A New Hope is pretty good, but maybe The Last Hope, or even THE LAST JEDI, to show off how far hope has fallen and how dire things are. Or even REBEL STRIKE, though the action comes fairly late. Not convinced.
  5. The Empire doesn’t even strike back in this film. Other than attacking a single rebel base. But it’s not really a retaliation. What happens? They flee Hoth, Luke trains in Dagobah, Vader captures them at Cloud City, Dad fight. So, no idea. LURE OF THE DARK SIDE could work here.
  6. THE LAST JEDI could also work here, since Obi Wan is dead, Yoda dies/is in hiding, and it emphasises the odds against Luke. Though you have been told ‘there is another’ in Empire.
  7. The force does awaken in a couple of people. But I like SHADOW OF THE EMPIRE because it shows the resurgent threat, and reminds you that the First Order is just the Empire reborn.

Someone requested I make a crawl for them of RotJ, but with the title Blue Harvest. That got me thinking, how do people feel about alternative titles that have nothing to do with the movies?

Here are the production titles
Star Wars: Episode I - The Dollhouse
Star Wars: Episode II - Jar Jar’s Big Adventure*
Star Wars: Episode VI - Blue Harvest
Star Wars: Episode VII - Foodles
Star Wars: Episode VIII - Space Bear
Star Wars: Episode IX - Black Diamond

Maybe for RotS, ANH, ESB, and E9…
Low Tide, the High King, High Tide, Skybeam (those are just dumb stuff I came up with, I’m sure you can do better)
Maybe “Whills” for ANH.

I think it’s interesting.

Now I have to cleanse my mouth (fingers?) for calling them by their episode numbers.

*Maybe just “The Big Adventure” or “Big Adventure”, that would be a horrible title.

Episode X: The Force Awakens
Episode XI: The Last Jedi
etc.

In terms of titles I’d say that the official ones are better than any fan made ones I’ve seen so far. Except for some really ridiculous ones, that are somewhat better than the officials.

^Define “a title.”

A bad title is still a title.
