Star Wars: Episode VIII Gets an Official Title


After director Rian Johnson teased fans earlier this month with the knowledge that the next Star Wars movie already had a title (and, in fact, had been given one ever since the first draft of the script was completed), Disney and Lucasfilm have finally let the rest of the world in on the secret. The official title of Episode VIII is… Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Let the speculation begin as to who that Last Jedi might be. We still don’t know much about the plot of the movie, but there have been rumours going around that the movie will reveal a great deal of Rey’s back story. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper) and it hits theatres on December 15th, 2017. What do you think of the official title?

Around the Web:

    Tired of these low effort logos

  • Newtman98

    I’m predicting episode IX will be called Star Wars: The Fight for Balance

  • Kyle

    I guess the answer would be Luke? But that seems too..easy. Interesting that Star Wars is in red instead of the traditional yellow.

  • The Last Jedi sounds like an extended universe book title… So kinda bland. Looks like I’ll just be calling it episode 8. That said, still excited for the actual story.

  • ReelJunkie

    I like it. It’s simple and, as Mark Hamill put it, has an ancient Samurai vibe to it.

  • ReelJunkie

    Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke.

    Hopefully, after Rogue One finishes its run at the cinema, we’ll get a trailer.

    My guess is Rey has a son and HE is the last Jedi. But who’s the baby daddy?

  • Chris

    Odds are we’ll get one in a couple weeks during the Superbowl.

    In the crawl of Force Awakens it says Luke is the last Jedi.

  • Rey will train to be a Jedi… So while at the time the Force Awakens began, Luke was the ‘last’, as far as the Star Wars universe, he most likely won’t be the last ever. There’s a good chance Kylo is pulled to the light (Prob. Ep 9) to take down Snoke and any other villains we’ve yet to meet, so he could also turn Jedi by the end of it all.

    OK, Luke trains Rey, battles the son of his sister, who kills him. Then Rey cuts of Kylo right hand. At the end the rebels are start ooking for someone, like Poe or Fin who was shockfrosted by little piggies.

    and then….

    Star Wars IX – Once again did the Jedi return- this time with WOOKKIIEESS!!!!!

    I’m guessing Luke dies in the movie so Rey will be the last jedi? maybe?
