We are 11 months away from the debut of the new Star Wars movie, and now we finally know the title.

Disney and Lucasfilm today announced the official title for Star Wars Episode VIII will be The Last Jedi. Could this be the end of the Luke Skywalker saga? Will all new Star Wars movies focus on something completely different?

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.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives December 15, 2017.

  1. The only current Canonical Jedi right now Is Luke. He was the only one that was pronounced a Jedi by a surviving member of the Jedi Counsel (Yoda in ROTJ), so then Yes he is the LAST Jedi. There have been others with potential and training, but they do not have the formal position. So basically the title makes perfect sense.
