The follow-up to the megahit “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has finally had the big reveal of its title, which will be “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Disney and Lucasfilm announced the title Monday, and unveiled the logo for the movie, which you can see below.
The movie is written and directed by Rian Johnson, and picks up the action where “The Force Awakens” leaves off.
The project was announced shortly after Disney acquired Lucasfilm in October 2012, and “Star Wars” fans have been waiting for a title ever since. The movie has also been called “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” in keeping with the tradition of the main films in the franchise.
The movie has a scheduled release date of Dec. 15, 2017, and features Mark Hamill as Jedi Master Luke Skywalker along with Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa. Fisher completed filming on the movie before she died in December.
