New Title for Star Wars Episode VIII

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Lucasfilm announced today the new title for the much anticpated Star Wars: Episode VIII. It will be called, The Last Jedi. Having seen the predecessor of this film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I'm guessing that's going to be Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

Fans of the film will be glad to know that the other characters introduced in the 2015 movie will appear here too, including Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Isaac), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Leia (played by the late Carrie Fisher).

Be sure to brush up on the past Star Wars adventures so you'll be ready when this one opens in theaters, December 15, 2017.
