The release and photo demonstrate that Lucasfilm is now labeling the episodic Star Wars films as the “Skywalker saga” to differentiate between the main films and spinoffs like Rogue One. That and title aside, Lucasfilm didn’t reveal any other information, but fans are already analyzing what little there is—and in full force.
For instance, why is the Star Wars font red?
As some have pointed out, it’s not the first time Star Wars has used the color.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens ends with Rey presenting Luke Skywalker with his old lightsaber on Ahch-To, and we know that The Last Jedi will pick up right where it left off. Now fans are asking, well, who is the last Jedi? Is it Luke, Rey, both of them, or somebody we’re not expecting?
Director Rian Johnson has said the title of The Last Jedi has been part of his script since the first draft, so we’re especially curious to see where it goes. Even more impressive is that someone guessed the correct title a year ago. It’s also the name of a Star Wars Legends novel, which is no longer considered canon by Lucasfilm.
We’re not getting Episode IX for years, but fans already collectively agreed on what to call it.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters Dec. 15.
