    The title has been announced by Lucasfilm:

    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 is scheduled for release December 15, 2017.

    Word has it that the beginning of the new film is the very moment Rey gives Luke's lightsaber to him on that mountain. Not sure if the movie is going to center around Luke, but no doubt he has a large part in it (hopefully).

    Post all new rumors here (after vetting them first!).

    you mean STAR WARS VIII? :)

    Just delete my star wars viii thread then, why have two threads on the same film?

    (I made a thread for every upcoming SW's movie already)

    It's just a teaser - not even a full trailer so I fully expected the lack of any details.

    I rather enjoyed Rogue One. It looked and felt like Star Wars. For me, more so than The Force Awakens. I think this one might also be good. :)

    I am not expecting it to be as good as ROGUE ONE. I think it will be better then ep 7-which wasn't bad, but did have some irritating moments like the fast friends situation between Finn and Poe Dameron

    also, just how easy it was-almost like pathological, the ease with which Finn begins to kill the only 'family' he has ever known-starting with blasting to hell the ppl in the TIE launch bay

    besides those twp characters, it was good and i am hoping 8 will be progressively better then 7
