Star Wars fans are getting an unexpected treat today. While no, there isn’t a trailer for the upcoming Episode VIII yet, we at least finally have a name. Get ready for ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi.’
And that’s about all the announcement really says, other than hinting once more that it’s the “next film in the Skywalker Saga.” As we knew before, the movie is slated to be released on December 15, 2017.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Of course, you can expect fans across the interwebs to analyze the title, logo, and couple of paragraphs in the news release to death. But hey, the name certainly sounds dramatic and that red lettering is ominous and Sith-like.
If you’re wondering what will happen with Carrie Fisher’s scenes, know that she was to complete all her filming before her passing. It’s going to be bittersweet.
Now, about that trailer….
