Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill responded to Episode VIII finally getting a name, saying he likes the minimalist nature of the title. He's also glad he doesn't have to keep it a secret any more. Interestingly, he also said he likes how the title has a "samurai" feel to it.

Following a delay, The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15, 2017. It also stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. Carrie Fisher filmed her Leia scenes for the movie before she passed away in December.
