With all the "Star Wars" news coming from Disney recently, by the time the movie actually comes out, millions of nerds will be hospitalized in oxygen tents.

On the heels of last week's cast announcement, it's been reportedly leaked that the title of Episode 7 will be "The Ancient Fear," which is somehow a reference to one of the film's villains, played by Max von Sydow.

Our source on this is someone named Harry Knowles from Ain't It Cool News. Which I've never really heard of, but won't stop me from responding by immediately hitting the floor to play with my Han Solo and Boba Fett action figures.

Not dolls ... action figures.

HuffPost Entertainment reportedly tried contacting a representative for Lucasfilm for comment. The site says they will share the news if the studio responds.

Whatever they call it, "Star Wars: Episode VII" comes out Dec. 18, 2015.
