The previous hit, "Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens", hit $936.66M at the domestic box-office alone, and went on to make over $2.06B at the global box-office.

Fisher shot all of her scenes for the movie before her sudden death in December of a heart attack, Disney said at the time of her passing.

Who is the last Jedi?

This could mean a few things as the success of Rogue One has already shown that Star Wars' fans want more of the universe.

Some online found the title to be a bit ominous - perhaps a signal that Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, may be in danger. Since Rey has clearly sought him out for training, this could mean that Luke dies sometime in the movie making Rey the last known Jedi.

Nearly the entire plot of The Force Awakens-other than destroying yet another Death Star-like contraption-was trying to find Luke Skywalker, who went into hiding after something went wrong involving his Jedi academy.

Alec Baldwin to host SNL for record-setting 17th time
In recent weeks, TV critic and also President Donald Trump has called SNL "not amusing ", "the worst of NBC", and "bad". On Monday morning, SNL tweeted a picture showing Alec Baldwin and musical guest Ed Sheeran scheduled for February 11.

While certainly evocative, it's not exactly clear who the last Jedi will be (and Jedi can be plural!).

The Last Jedi will hit theaters on December 15, 2017.

The news was announced earlier via StarWars.com by the folks at Disney and Lucasfilm, in an article which paid tribute to the sci-fi franchise's ever-faithful fans.

The official title has been revealed for the next Star Wars film.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper, Breaking Bad), The Last Jedi will continue the Skywalker storyline where The Force Awakens left off. But if you ask me, it's a great title. Especially considering that Star Wars Celebration is just around the corner and set for April, which is where we will probably see the first trailer for the movie.
