It might be two years away, but the rumour mill is already in full swing
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has yet to make it onto DVD yet, but there’s already a host of rumours circulating about what its follow up – Star Wars Episode 8 could be called.
The next film to be released from the epic space saga will be Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in late 2016, it’ll be set between Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.
However, the next numbered entry into the franchise is due in Christmas 2017. We’d already been treated to a mini-mini-trailer featuring new footage of Rey and Luke Skywalker on that remote island.
But now two sources have emerged suggesting different titles for Episode VIII, the first surfaced from Reddit, a pitched Star Wars: Tale of the Jedi Temple as the next film’s title – they suggest it will be confirmed on May The Fourth, the unofficial Star Wars day.
The other title came from a Croatian Star Wars fan site, they think it will be called Star Wars: The Order of the Dark Side.
Daisy Ridley recently spoke about working on Episode VIII saying the set is “lovely warm and friendly”.
The first title could be making reference to Luke Skywalker’s search for the first ever Jedi temple – and it’s thought that’s the location where we find him at the end of The Force Awakens. The second seems a bit more plausible however, as it makes reference to Kylo Ren’s league of warriors The First Order.
The only other hint to the movie’s title was a tweet from Carrie Fisher, which showed her dog, Gary, sat on an official Star Wars 8 chair, which seemed to have a Panda bear designed into the logo.
