Has the highly guarded secret been revealed? Get ready Star Wars Fans!
Earlier today, ahead of any official announcement from Disney or Lucasfilm, a video has surfaced online that seems to reveal an official poster for Star Wars: Episode VIII from the upcoming Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 which takes place this August. The poster shown in the short video reveals the name which you can check out below.
The title on the poster, reveals that the possible official title for Star Wars: Episode VIII is Star Wars: Fall of the Resistance! Wow, Epic right?
While there is a chance that this could be a fake or for some other product, the fact that the official Star Wars Celebration logo is on the poster lends some strong credibility. Plus, the subtitle definitely makes since if you have been hearing all the whispers of the overall darker tone of the upcoming sequel. Even stars John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Daisy Ridley have teased the film as having a darker story in the vein of Empire Strikes Back or Revenge of the Sith. Not to mention that the mind behind Brick and Looper, Mr. Rian Johnson is writing and directing the film.
With this leak, we should expect an official announcement of the title from Disney/Lucasfilm sooner than expected.
So what do all you Star Wars fanboys and fangirls think? Does the title look legit? If so, do you like it? Leave us your thoughts in the comments section down below, thanks!
