The Title For The Next Chapter Of Star Wars: Episode VIII Has Been Revealed

Submitted by: panth753 8 months ago in Entertainment

It's official fellow Star Wars nerds -- the next chapter in our beloved saga will be called "Star Wars: The Last Jedi."

Is the red logo significant? It's almost always been gold (and sometimes white) in the past. Red = revenge? Redemption?

UPDATED

And in related news, Donald Glover will be cast a young Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Warsfilm.

Question: Is there too much Star Wars going on? Usually, less is more, and less build anticipation. If we get a new Star Wars film every year, will it lose the fact that these movies used to be highly-anticipated events? w/b: fancylad

I'm still upset that they aren't using all the tons of Lucas-endorsed literature thats already been out for years to continue the story line. Why make up new stories that are completely at odds with all the stories that already exist?

whosaidwhat That is how I felt about Rogue One.  Kyle Katarn and the Jedi Knight series is actually a well made story with great characters.  The Death Star plans were just the beginning, they had to shut down the Dark Troopers facility in the end which would explain their absence in the original trilogy.  But alas...here we are.  Post Trilogy novels range from rather good (The Thrawn series) to complete garbage though.

kalron27 Thrawn is so good.  Loved that series.  I wish Disney would pay those people for the story, I think that's the crux of the problem, why share the profits afterall right?

normalfreak2 That is why we haven't seen an unedited rerelase of the original trilogy...20th Century Fox owns the original cut...which is why Lucas did the Special Editions so he could bypass the deal.

I am apparently in the minority now, but I thoroughly enjoyed EP VII.  It was a return to form.  You say rehash, I say cyclical nature of the Star Wars story.  Why wouldn't the First Order build another Death Star...Technically the first one worked, it fucking destroyed an entire planet.  The Star Killer offed 4 of them at once.  Even if it got blowed up at the end it still wiped out the Republic in one fell swoop.  On topic, love the title, it made me smile when I read it today.

kalron27 Same. The 7th movie was a major sigh of relief for me. It signaled that they listened to everyone who complained about the original trilogy, fixed it, and now going in a new direction.

Once a year is fine and the spin off, main story alternation seems to work pretty well.

No such thing as too much Star Wars.  Well, I guess if we were getting a new movie every month it might be too much.  Once a year though is pretty great.  I feel with today's limited attention span if they came out less frequently, people might lose interest.

If they make over a billion dollars a year, no. We will never get less. If they were doing 2 a year it might be too much but I think a year is plenty of time to build anticipation. People have been saying Marvel was flooding the market and people were going to lose interest but it hasn't got even close to happening yet.
