We're all looking forward to seeing Disney and J.J. Abrams carrying on various staples of "Star Wars" and a UK fan-site seems to have revealed another example.

Super-fans know that "Return of the Jedi" (originally titled "Revenge of the Jedi," until a very educated super-fan pointed out the philosophical problem with that title) went under the working title "Blue Harvest" back in 1982, to hide the production from the prying eyes of press and people dressed up like Darth Vader. ("Blue Harvest" has since been referenced by Family Guy, The Simpsons, Dark Horse Comics and more.)

And this was before TMZ existed, so imagine the secrecy that is going to be required for "Star Wars Episode VII." It looks like the sneaky working title this time around is going to be "Foodles."

Yes, as in, the Disney themed snack product at the grocery store.


The UK's Jedi News also seemed to corroborate reports elsewhere that Abrams flick will start shooting in August, at England's legendary Pinewood Studios. Pinewood has played host to James Bond, Captain America, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Superman, Dr. Who and a whole host of other classic productions over the years, going all the way back to the 1930s.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" will be the first new "Star Wars" movie since 2005's "Revenge of the Sith." The original trilogy's Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are expected to return.

MTV News tried to get Harrison Ford to admit what's up at San Diego Comic-Con, but that just turned into him doing a Robert DeNiro impression (and later refusing to do a Chewbacca impression).

As we await any kind of glimpse at the new "Star Wars" trilogy, enjoy this super rare trailer from when "Episode VI" was still going to be called "Revenge of the Jedi":
