Rumour: Is this the working title for Star Wars: Episode VII?

This morning's Episode VII rumour is a bit of a biggie, with AICN reporting that the film has a new working title that refers to one of its characters.

According to the report, the film will be known as The Ancient Fear , a title that refers to Max von Sydow's character, who will apparently be the villain of the piece.

Furthermore, AICN claims that said villain "makes Pazuzu look like a pussy", in reference to the demon von Sydow squared off against in The Exorcist .

The story goes on to claim that the title has been verified by a source close to the production, although needless to say, nothing has been confirmed by Disney's official channels.

So does Star Wars: Episode VII - The Ancient Fear have a ring to it, in your opinion? Let us know what you'd have called it in the comments section below...
