Revenge of the Sith title here to stay?

Recently, I have heard speculation that Episode III's newly released title, Revenge of the Sith, is a ruse, and that the real title of Episode III will not be disclosed until the movie's premiere. This sounds totally bogus to me. As you may already know, I was there when the Revenge of the Sith title was released at Star Wars Spectacular on July 24, 2004 at Comic-Con International. Right after the title was revealed, Steve Sansweet assured fans that this time around, the word 'Revenge' was going to stay in the title. That got a laugh.

I do not think that any Lucasfilm representative could lie to fans at point blank range. It would not be right, and would spur a wave of outrage among fans. Plus why get everyones' hopes up this early? It all just doesn't add up.

There was a REASON for George Lucas's decision to change Episode VI's title from Revenge of the Jedi to Return of the Jedi. It would not be in a Jedi's character to desire revenge, Lucas decided.

There would be no logical reason to change Episode III's title, on the other hand, because unlike Jedi, Sith CAN and DO have revenge. Remember one of the few lines of dialogue that Darth Maul had in Episode I? "At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge." Episode III's title is right from the Sith Lord's mouth, for crying out loud.

As one final note, according to StarWars.com's current poll, 86% of Star Wars fans either "like" or "love" the title Revenge of the Sith. That's a pretty overwhelming majority. If the title ain't broke, why try and fix it?

Anyhow, I think that's enough griping for one night. The point is, the title ain't changing, people. Revenge of the Sith is here to stay. Don't believe me? Wait till May 19, 2005.
