Star Wars Episode VIII officially titled The Last Jedi


Kylo Ren = The Shogun of Space Harlem

It's official, ladies and gents. Star Wars Episode VIII from wirter/director Rian Johnson is titled The Last Jedi. One might have expected this to be the name of the the third film in the new trilogy, following the naming conventions of Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith. Instead, a swerve that reminds me of the cult martial arts movie The Last Dragon.

This means that Rey is Bruce Leroy and Kylo Ren is the Shogun of Space Harlem.

A poster for the film is in the gallery. What do you think of the title? Let us know in the comments.
