Surprisingly enough, it would seem an early official logo for J.J Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII has been leaked online! Now, it is possible that the following image could be completely fake, yet also could simply be a promotional banner used for licensing or even one of the "options" for a new logo. We urge readers to take the following with a grain of salt as currently we have no way to confirm or deny the legitimacy of the image. It was posted by the official Yahoo! Movies UK Twitter page however, which lends a slight bit of credability to the find. Have a look for yourself:

"S7ar Wars" really doesn't roll of the tongue, but it is a witty attempt at revolutionizing the logo for the seventh sequel. Of course, once they tag "Episode VII" under the title (if they do), the 7 will become redundant. Not to mention, they won't be able to trademark that logo very well for episodes 8 and 9, as those numbers would not work in that same position - forcing a redesign.
With all that said, it is possible this could be a teaser logo for the big reveal later on. Many films go through numerous logo redesigns throughout their production, it would not be surprising if Star Wars 7 did so as well.
