THE LAST JEDI will pick up where 2015’s box office record-breaker THE FORCE AWAKENS left off. The exciting thing for fans is to now try and figure out whether the ‘Jedi’ in THE LAST JEDI is singular or plural. One thing for certain: after having fans attempting to squeeze as many details out of him as humanly possible through social media this past year, Johnson (LOOPER) can finally rest easy after this title reveal:

Produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski, the new sequel stars the returning Mark Hamill, (the late) Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis alongside newcomers Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran.

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI flies into theaters December 15th, 2017.
