Disney has finally unveiled the official name for Star Wars: Episode VIII. It will be titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi. 

The film, which will be directed by franchise newcomer Rian Johnson, reportedly picks up immediately after the final shot of 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That means we'll find out what happens next after Rey (Daisy Ridley) finds Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who had been living in seclusion.

The cast also includes the late Carrie Fisher, who died on December 27, as Leia, alongside returning members Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie and Andy Serkis. That lot will be be joined by newbies Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit theaters on December 15, 2017. Stay tuned for more information.
