In a Friday missive to the film series’ wide-reaching, Internet-savvy fan-base, Lucasfilm took to the Web to release the title of George Lucas’ upcoming “Star Wars” film: “Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace.”

A spokesperson at 20th Century Fox — which will release all three of the upcoming “Star Wars” prequels — also confirmed the film’s title.

Rather than rely on announcements to the press, Lucasfilm has regularly used the films’ official Web site (www.starwars.com) to update fans about the film’s progress and announce news related to the franchise. Last month, the company also announced the film’s May 21, 1999, release date on the site.
