What are the 'working title' names of the Star Wars movies?

What's a working title and what were they for the Star Wars movies?

A working title is the name of a film production - it could even be the name of the film. Where film producers desire some secrecy around a project or they simply don't want to announce the name of a film yet, they choose a working title so it can be referred to without giving anything away. For example the Titantic's working title was Planet Ice, which totally would mean nothing to the average dude on the street if they heard about it. 

Productions also used meaningless names to prevent price gouging on locations and services. If a supplier knows that the filming is for the new Batman movie, they might up their price. If it was for a simple sounding comedy, the usual fee might apply. 

The Return of the Jedi featured a very famous working title, Blue Harvest. This had an elaborate back story of being a horror movie. Many people hope that George Lucas will one day make this so called horror and release it with it's supposed tag line "horror beyond imagination". 

Here's the working and or shipping titles of the various Star Wars movies
  • Star Wars - Adventures of the Starkiller: Episode 1 - The Star Wars
  • The Empire Strikes Back - There was no working title
  • Return of the Jedi - Blue Harvest
  • The Phantom Menace - The Doll House
  • Attack of the Clones - Cue Ball
  • Revenge of the Sith - The Bridge
  • The Force Awakens - Foodles, Avco
  • First Anthology: Rogue One - Los Alamos
  • Second Anthology - Tin Can
We understand that the Avco working title has two inspirations - Avco was the name of the theatre where The Force Awakens' director JJ Abrams first saw Star Wars and the venue was also one of the first places to install the THX sound system on the release of Star Wars.

Concept art from Rogue One revealed at Star Wars Celebration.

The first real details about Rogue One have been let loose into the wild, along with this concept art.

Director Gareth Edwards reminded everyone at the Star Wars Celebration 2015 that the second word of Star Wars is Wars and this concept art suggests that will be going on in spades in R1.

We’ve finally seen everything: Admiral Ackbar as a Playboy Bunny cosplayer

My eyes are up here, boys
This most definitely the weirdest Star Wars cross over we’ve ever seen – Jenny Newman has come up with an incredibly odd cosplay riff – a female Mon Calamari as a classic Play Boy bunny waitress!

In a classic play on "it's a trap", comes "it's a frap!"

it's a frape! ackbunny cosplay

Here’s Jenny after her day out as Admiral Ackbunny at the Star Wars celebration event:

What we know about Rogue One

Gareth Edwards and friends have talked about Rogue One in some detail at the Celebration Event. Here's what we picked up. 
  • Its place in the Star Wars time line is just before A New Hope
  • It features “A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans’.
  • The movie will not focus on the Jedi instead the move “ comes down to a group of individuals who don’t have magical powers that have to somehow bring hope to the galaxy”.
  • John Knoll came up with the story.
  • Obi Wan is the voice talking during the leaked teaser. They are his lines from A New Hope when he fills Luke in on the comings and goings of his father and Vader. 
  • Felicity Jones plays a Rebel soldier.
  • Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards. He made his name with Monsters and cashed it with Godzilla.
  •  Doug Chiang is a production designer. His claim to fame is design work on the prequel trilogies.
We're presuming the teaser that was shown 'in house' will not be made officially available due to the promotional arrangement in place regarding Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
