some people like, some people dont like, the title Attack of the Clones. What do you think would be a better title?

Well, here are the favourites of a poll on TheForce.Net, posted a while ago. :) 15,748 fans voted! ;)

I had thought that The Clones Wars would have been a better title until I said, "Star Wars Clone Wars." Try it, say it out loud to yourself in front of your computer right now. Say it a few times and see what you think.

I think it should be called <I>Star Wars Episode II: Here Comes Uncle Elmer</I>.

Nah, I'm one of those folks who thinks <I>Attack of the Clones</I> is fine. To me, getting hung up on the title is like getting upset about the box of a game you like -- you're not playing the box, you're playing the game. I'm not excited about what Episode II is called, but what's in it.

Well, I'm not overtly familiar with the full details of the Episode II plotline. Attack of the Clones sounds like a B movie to me :D

I looked at the poll mentioned and I didn't like any of the suggestions... If you ask me, the word "clone" just doesn't sound right in a title.

As for an alternative, I'd go for something less obvious. Now, I gather that a number of Jedi die in Episode II? Then I'd go for something like "Star Wars: Tragedy at X" where X is the place where they all get killed off :)

Aside from the fact that people should focus more on the fact that there's a galactic war (hence the clone wars) going on thn a handful of dead jedi. how about something like Starwars Ep II: descent into madness or just descent? As the central story is really Anakin's fall. Anyway, I think atack of the clones is fine. I initially had the B movie title misgivings... (though honestly how much better is The Empire Strikes Back... it almost directly mirrors Attack of the Clones [at least title relating to content wise... can't really say much on the plot yet]) but I'm over that and looking forward to a good movie. Maybe if they focus less on Jar Jar and flatulance I'll see a great movie.

Star Wars: Rise of the Empire

Star Wars: Fall of the Republic (maybe for Episode III)

Star Wars: Darkness Rising

Something GRAND and EPIC. I mean, I admit that I'm getting =used= to AoTC, but only because I know I'll have to deal with it. I mean, TPM seemed like a pretty stupid title at the time, but I'm hoping after all 3 prequels are out, it'll all mesh together in retrospect.

the title is SUPPOSED to sound like a B movie... it harkens back to the old flash gorden serials etc

IT couldn't be called rise of the empire. People'd always be getting RotJ and RotE mixed up :p

I dunno about you guys but I thought Rise of the Clones wasn't too bad. In fact I thought it sounded really cool. We could say RotC!!
