Star Wars The Last Jedi hits theaters this December

Today is an awesome day to be a Star Wars fan!!! After much speculation and a slew of rumored titles had supposedly leaked online, Lucasfilm has announced and confirmed earlier today the full title of the 8th episodic installment in their Star Wars franchise as Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

The news came in the early morning with much excitement and praise. When discussing the reveal via StarWars.com, Lucusfilm commented,

We have the greatest fans in this or any other galaxy. In appreciation of the fans, we wanted them to be the first to know the title of the next chapter in the Skywalker saga: Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release December 15, 2017.”

News also hit twitter feeds fast with the announcement news with Disney & Lucasfilm confirming the reveal via social media as well.

While we don’t know exactly what the official synopsis is yet, it has been confirmed by Director/Writer Rian Johnson that the film will continue immediately following the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens  and continue off that cliffhanger ending with Rey & Luke Skywalker. Also noticed the Red font in the logo? Perhaps we can expect more “dark force” influence shown in the film? And who is the Last Jedi referring to? Is it Luke himself? Could it be Rey?

Looks like we’ll have to wait for a while for the first “Last Jedi” trailer to release to shed some light on some burning questions but with Star Wars Celebration approaching soon,  hopefully we’ll get some news morsels sooner than later.
