The full title of Star Wars Episode VIII has been revealed.
According to the official Star Wars Twitter account, the full title will be Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The film will continue on from where The Force Awakens left off in 2015, with new hero Rey (Daisy Ridley) finally discovering an older Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
The new title begs the question of whether the title is referring to Mr Skywalker as The Last Jedi. We’d be very surprised if Mr Hamill didn’t play a larger role in Episode VIII, after all.
General Leia Organa will also play a larger role in the sequel, with all of her scenes being filmed before Carrie Fisher’s tragic death in December 2016.
Episode VII alum John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson and Andy Serkis are all scheduled to return to the franchise for The Last Jedi.
