StarWars.com had the scoop but no further details.

The first thing that sticks out is the obvious absence of "Episode VII" from the official title. This title format definitely harkens back to the original trilogy and does away with the "Episode" + Roman numeral structure. I say good riddance.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
