Star Wars: Episode VIII to be titled ‘The Last Jedi’

So you’re not tired of Star Wars are you? At the Reek of Geek headquarters it’s pretty much all we talk about so to have a bit more news on the forthcoming ‘Skywalker Saga’ films is only a good thing.

It seems we now have a title for Episode VIII (due to be released December 15th 2017) and Lucasfilm are going with The Last Jedi.

Interestingly the title ‘The Last Jedi’ has been used once before, this from Wookieepedia:

The Last Jedi is a novel by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff that was released on February 26, 2013. The book’s original name was Jedi Dawn, but on March 2, 2011, Bohnhoff confirmed that the title had changed, saying, “I noted that Jedi Dawn has already been used for another book and Michael really likes the title Last Jedi.”

The book was originally going to be the fourth Coruscant Nights novel, but it is now a standalone followup to the series.

Not to be confused with the upcoming film!

The book’s story takes place directly after Revenge of the Sith so I don’t think we’ll see any conflicting information as the film will clearly be featuring an older Luke Skywalker.

So what do you think? Does The Last Jedi stand up with the other titles in the saga? Are there any clues we can gather from this headline? Are there to be no more Jedi after Luke? Let us know in the comments!
