The official Star Wars website has today announced the title of the next film in the Star Wars series.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be directed by Rian Johnson and will continue the story set up in The Force Awakens. Speculation has already begun with various other sites debating the name and what it will mean regarding the fate of the Jedi.

As anyone who saw The Force Awakens is aware, that film ends with Daisy Ridley’s Rey finding Luke Skywalker who is on a self-imposed sabbatical after his student Kylo-Ren massacred the rest of Luke’s Jedi’s in training.

Hopefully more details will soon follow, with fans eager to evaluate any bit of information they can get their hands on.
