"Star Wars: Episode VIII" has officially been christened "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". At the end of "The Force Awakens", we saw Rey handing the lightsaber to Luke Skywalker, who has presumably been in self-imposed exile since his nephew, Kylo Ren, betrayed him and killed his other students. The next movie that till date we thought would be called Episode VIII has an official name now, and even a possible theme (that's just our guess but you know what we're talking about). However, for now, we are going to continue to ride our X-Wings made of hype as we await the eventual teaser for this movie. Is the red font in the poster an indication of bad things to come? This opens the door to an already popular fan-theory about Rey's parentage, unless it means the continuation of the Skywalker's story since Luke's last appearance. Maybe there's also some.revenge involved?
With The Force Awakens completely renovating the franchise and Rogue One still giving fans plenty to be excited about, don't expect Star Wars to go away anytime soon.

Not that this will have any bearing on the movie's quality, but something about "The Last Jedi" sounds kind of obvious/fan-fiction to me.
Carrie Fisher, who passed away late previous year, completed work on the movie as General Leia Organa before her death.
