OP: a question. Is "A New Hope" really any better? This is the first in a trilogy, it is a building block.

And I quote The Bard: "what is in a name..."

That title gives us a vague notion as to the tenor of the story. Nothing more. Any more and there is the risk of giving away the story.

Like during Christensen's scenes?
The Force was DEFINITELY not awakened during those - not that I blame it, I struggled to remain "awakened" myself.

Id have thought the Force was wide awake then and kicking and screaming in anguish.

I am pretty pumped for VII and think the title is great. It perfectly sets up the spirit for the reboot under the sure directorial hand of JJ Abrams. ^_^

A New Hope is better because it ties directly into what the movie was about(all of the Star Wars movies are named after what's in them).

Granted The Force Awakens could tie directly into the movie. Like the movie could be all about how the Force was lying dormant in lots of people and then suddenly people start getting force sensitivity or something.

It is a weird title though. The implications are either that the Force is more like a god and has been sleeping all this time, or that there'll be a sudden rash of people getting force powers(both of which are radically different than how Legacy Star Wars worked). Or that the title has basically nothing to do with what it is actually in the movie(my guess as to what is most likely).

It could very well be about the Force 'awakening' in a single person who is central to the plot. Doesn't have to be something on a grand scale to still be a relevant title to the story being told.
