We have a title! We have a title! And what an ominous one it is.
Star Wars Episode VIII is officially called: The Last Jedi. And we’re not sure if we’re dancing or crying. But we’re feeling things, that’s for sure. Worry, first of all – because last?

The news was announced by the Star Wars Official Twitter. You can find the tweet below.
