The Official Title for Star Wars Episode VIII Revealed – ‘The Last Jedi’
Lucasfilm announced on Monday morning that the latest installment in the Skywalker saga will be titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
As you can see in the official teaser poster for the film, the Star Wars name is in red, which was also the case for 1983’s Return of the Jedi, originally called Revenge of the Jedi.
The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson and will reunite The Force Awakens cast, including the late Carrie Fisher, while also introducing new characters played by Laura Dern, Benicio Del Toro, and Kelly Marie Tran.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release on December 15, 2017. That red font has got me all nervous. Check them out below.
I was expecting a four word title like every middle installment of each trilogy. However, I’m really glad it doesn’t have “of the” in it.
