The next episode (that would be “VIII”) of the Star Wars franchise now has a proper title. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters in December 2017.
The news comes directly from the official Star Wars site—no “alternative facts” about this one.
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.
If the Force allows it, Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters on Dec. 15.
Like The Force Awakens, expect records to be broken.
Kylo Ren gotta catch a fade, #fortheculture.
