A Star Wars Fan Guessed The Force Awakens Title Two Years Ago

Back in December of 2012, a brand-new user to TheForce.net guessed that the title for Star Wars Episode VII would be The Force Awakens.

It was one of only two posts she made before disappearing from the site, so when Screencrush noticed that she'd been extraordinarily prescient, the message board moderators at TheForce.net tracked down "Queen Gimmedala" to ask how she guessed it.

I totally forgot I came up with it…Ultimately this was a random guess. No inside info or connection to Lucas. But to me it seemed logical that the first movie in this trilogy would need to address the force. I’m a believer that the movie titles in each trilogy closely relate and I suspect this will carry over for the ST.

So I knew it was going to be 3 words, and the force. I also know that the wording would be vague/ambiguous/old fashioned like all the other six movie titles.

So...basically a little bit of common sense and a little bit of luck.

This is the kind of thing that comics publishers used to give out No-Prizes (Marvel) and Baldy Awards (DC) for. Maybe somebody should arrange for this user to get a blank envelope in the mail from Lucasfilm.
