The Title Of The Next Star Wars Movie Has Been Revealed
The title for "Star Wars: Episode VIII" has finally been revealed.
Disney announced on Monday that the next chapter in the space opera saga will be named "Star Wars: The Last Jedi."
"The Last Jedi," written and directed by Rian Johnson, immediately follows the events of 2015's smash hit "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
The film stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis.
The cast also includes the late Carrie Fisher, who died on December 27.
The actress, who played Princess Leia Organa, had wrapped shooting in July. Lucasfilm said earlier this month that it won't digitally recreate Fisher in upcoming movies.
Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran will also appear in "The Last Jedi."
