We’re a little less than a year away from the release of Star Wars: Episode IX, the final installment of the sequel trilogy. Although it may be a little too early for some, the most hardcore fans are counting down the weeks until the Dec. 20 release, and it’s certainly permissible to start expecting some news from the halls of Lucasfilm, not least of all the title of Episode IX. The official title for The Last Jedi was announced on Jan. 23, 2017, so expecting a similar marketing trajectory we should have our title in just a few short weeks. Typical of both Star Wars films and director J.J. Abrams, the next chapter in the saga of Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Kylo Ren is shrouded in mystery. The title will give us our first indication of what’s in store for our characters, though as we learned from The Last Jedi, it may not go the way we expect.
