Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Let the speculation of what that means begin.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, the title for Episode VIII was revealed by Lucasfilm through the release of the film’s first official poster (modest though it may be), seen below.
So what does it mean? Who knows, but some will no doubt begin to wonder if this will actually be Luke Skywalker’s final chapter…and, if so, maybe that’s why General Leia was intended to have such an integral role in Episode IX.
Suffice it to say it’s very provocative, and amps up anticipation even more than most likely assumed a simple title reveal would ignite.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi – which will have the full returning cast from The Force Awakens, along with new ensemble additions of Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran – will open worldwide on December 15, 2017.
