In a galaxy far, far away
Regardless of what color your lightsaber is, pause your training for a moment: On Monday, the franchise announced the title of its next installment, previously only known as Episode VIII:
The Last Jedi will follow the characters and timeline from The Force Awakens, a recent installment of the franchise, which was released December 2015. It will also be the last Star Wars film to feature the late Carrie Fisher. Fisher — famous for originating the role of Princess Leia — completed shooting her scenes for The Last Jedi before her death last month.
The Last Jedi is set for release on Dec. 15, 2017. Carry on, young padawan!
