The Star Wars film has a proper title now: Star Wars: The Force Awakens It seems like a fine title to me, since the Jedi will need to slowly rebuild after the events of Return of the Jedi.
There have been so many stories written in the Star Wars universe that people have all that in their heads rather than seeing the forthcoming film as a follow up to events in the film before it.
I am avoiding knowing as little as possible about the movie as I am able to do. I suppose it will be tougher as it gets closer.
In 1977, I went to the theater knowing nothing at all about a film called Star Wars: A New Hope and that worked out just fine.
