This week director Rian Johnson revealed that the title of his upcoming Episode VIII is Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Hmm. Seems kind of... final, doesn't it? Almost like that should be the title of Episode IX. But what do I know?
Sharp-eyed fans noticed that if you place the two titles side by side, they actually form a sentence: "The Force Awakens The Last Jedi."
Predictably, the internet immediately lit up with rampant speculation. Was this convergence intentional, or merely a coincidence? Is it a clue to the plot of the next film? A hint at a new character? Something completely meaningless that nerds are wasting their lives away debating?
And if it's true the titles are forming a sentence, will Episode IX complete it? Inquiring minds need to know the answer to this vitally important topic.
Welp, it turns out the fans were right! This new trilogy's titles ARE forming one long sentence. I contacted an anonymous source at Lucasfilm, who confirmed that the title for Episode IX has already been chosen, and gave me an exclusive scoop.
Admittedly this new Episode IX title is a bit awkward and enigmatic when seen by itself.
