New Evidence Suggests Episode VII's Working Title Is 'AVCO'

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool reported that Star Wars Episode VII's codename was "Avco," after the Los Angeles theater that was the city's first cinema to install Lucasfilm's THX sound-system technology. The website also provided convincing evidence, in the form of a screenshot of a LinkedIn page belonging to a film crew member whose past projects included "Avco at Lucasfilm."

Later in the day, MakingStarWars posted a picture of an industry newsletter listing "Star Wars Ep 7 aka AVCO" as one of several films in pre-production. The full newsletter is available here. See page 8 for the Avco mention.

MSW also posted a screenshot from a second LinkedIn user's profile that listed one of their current job as "H&S Advisor (Stunts) at "AVCO" Foodles Productions (UK) Ltd." This tracks with a rumor we heard last August about "Foodles Productions" being Episode VII's production codename.
