Carrie Fisher Reveals Star Wars: Episode VIII Working Title

Rumors have been floating around for a while about the working title for Star Wars: Episode VIII. Carrie Fisher took to Twitter today to post a picture that didn’t just feature her adorable french bulldog and emotional support animal Gary Fisher, but which also officially revealed the title. If you look closely at the chair that Gary is sitting on, you can see that the working title will be Space Bear. It even includes a small picture of a cute bear in the logo!


No news yet on what the movie’s actual title will be; however, the recently released production announcement seems to hint that Episode VIII will pick up right where The Force Awakens left off. It was also recently announced that Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran will join the cast, while the new trio and other fan favorites will be returning.

As we previously reported, the release of Episode VIII was pushed back by seven months, which means the movie, directed by Rian Johnson, will be in theaters December 15, 2017.
