Star Wars Episode 8: Title revealed

The title for the next instalment in the Star Wars Saga has been revealed and it's amazing! Episode 8 will be called 'The Last Jedi'.

It was announced on social media earlier today sending Star Wars fans (myself included) into a crazed meltdown of excitement.

'The Last Jedi' follows on from 2015's 'The Force Awakens', which ended with Rey finding Luke Skywalker, to hopefully begin her Jedi training.

Here's how the news broke on social media:


A statement on starwars.com read: "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".

'The Last Jedi' is written and directed by Rian Johnson, and sees the return of original saga cast members Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, among others.

Carrie Fisher sadly died at the end of last year, but Disney later reported that Fisher had completed all of her scenes for the film prior to her death.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' will be released on December 15 this year.
