We had a separate title discussion thread thread for…
 

The Force Awakens - Who like The Force Awakens as a title?

and

The Last Jedi - Name EPISODE VIII Thread
 

so may as well have one for Episode IX too… 😃
 

What are your thoughts on the title for the final segment of the Sequel Trilogy; and the last film of the Main Saga?

 

No spoilers in here - thank you. New plot spoiler policy - ** please read ** - in the Announcements section

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I can’t imagine that one rumored title “leak” to be true that IX would be called Will of the Force. That would just make the memesters’ day because then it would be called Star Wars: WTF? from there on out. Personally, I hope it’s something new and unique without “of the” preposition.

On another note, can we add an explicit no spoiler designation to the title for safety?

^ It’s going to be difficult to do that mate - the Episode IX title (and also the poster for IX) isn’t really a spoiler.

The name of it will be all over the mainstream news, tv, radio, internet - as of whenever it’s announced during the Celebration Panel for Episode IX (today at 11am CDT?).

Tomorrow there’ll be posters for it in public places and on adverting hoardings etc - there’ll likely be no escape from it - The Spark Of Hope.

I mean can we make it clear that there are no plot spoilers/leak discussion in this thread when we talk about the title.

I.e., can we add “NO SPOILERS” to the thread title.

I’m not trying to stay pure until I read the title in the opening crawl haha

Good luck don’t know if possible, but going in as clean as possible is the best way to enjoy the movie for what it is.

I personally hope “force” is not used, and it is instead a new noun. My hope:

JOURNEY OF THE WHILLS

Queue up incessant theories about Rey Skywalker. My prediction is that she will take up the name herself, though not a biological descendant. I like that idea; after all, don’t we all do that to some degree?

Episode I: THE PHANTOM MENACE
Episode II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES
Episode III: REVENGE OF THE SITH
Episode IV: A NEW HOPE
Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
Episode VI: RETURN OF THE JEDI
Episode VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS
Episode VIII: THE LAST JEDI
Episode IX: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

or, as I have it:

Episode I: CLOAK OF DECEPTION
Episode II: THE APPROACHING STORM
Episode III: LABYRINTH OF EVIL
Episode IV: A NEW HOPE
Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
Episode VI: RETURN OF THE JEDI
Episode VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS
Episode VIII: THE LAST JEDI
Episode IX: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Basically they copied the Dark Knight trilogy.

Batman Begins - The Force Awakens
The Dark Knight - The Last Jedi
The Dark Knight Rises - The Rise of Skywalker

SW has gone Hollywood.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

I suppose it remains to be seen if it’s the rise of Luke as a power or if Rey Random isn’t random after all.

For me, I’m hoping she stays random and it refers to Luke. Either way, fingers crossed that JJ can right the ship.

I believe that the title is referring to the Skywalker family lineage. I am someone who believes that Rey and Ben will end up together by the end of the trilogy. Even if the two have kids far in the future, they’ll be carrying the name Solo, but they are still carrying on the family line.

Doesn’t have to be about Luke. I think it’s Skywalker as an ideal and a legacy (and possibly a title).

Overall it looks like crap.

Sorry maybe that was a spoiler.

The Force Awakens
The Last Jedi
The Rise of Skywalker

Revenge of the Sith - ROTS - Decoded TROS - The Rise of Skywalker, I feel like this may have something to do with Revenge of the Sith… Something Fishy,
 

SPOILER REMOVED by Moderator - this is a NON-SPOILER thread.

so I feel like this may have something do do with Revenge of the Sith, or something about it, but that’s my own theory

Didn’t we just talk about how this is a non spoiler thread?

I think the word “rise” is overused in modern movie titles.

It’s a very bad title. Doesn’t sound good at all. Pretty sure it will make sense with the context of the story, but it won’t sound better. IMHO the worst SW title so far (not counting Rogue One and Solo).

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

Attack of the Clones dude, it’s not even a contest.

I think it is a cool title. Not what we were expecting. I especially like how it chose “Skywalker” instead of the plural. Suggests Ben- or maybe even Anakin- will have a large impact over the story.

Just my interpretation but this has a feeling of course correction from TLJ, for better or worse.

I do think AotC is better 😕

For once I agree with Mala. Attack of the Clones is pulpy and fun. The Rise of Skywalker sounds like it was generated by an algorithm.
