    What about Star Wars Episode IX: Son of Suns. If it really ties together the previous two trilogies and the prophecy, it could work. Apologies if it was already mentioned, I didn't read through all 29 pages.

    I'm going with the idea that the title has been mentioned in some sense in the movie previous..

    Star Wars Episode IX: A New Order

    I would almost be a little disappointed if this was the title as it seems a little bland for the episode that it is supposed to be the grand finale... but it works in so many ways that it just plain makes sense to me:
    • Renewing the Jedi Order
    • The possible destruction or dissolution of the First Order into something... new.
    • "Letting the past die" and beginning anew
    • Callback to the title that started it all, for the title that will end it all
    Ditto! I'm betting this or something similar has been tossed around.

    As you suspected it has been suggested already, and in an earlier post I've given reasons why I don't think this will be the title, or at least why I think it shouldn't be.

    Basically, I'd rule it out purely on the basis that 'The New Order' was also the name given Nazi Germany's political ideals, and I think Disney might want to avoid that potential association.

    From Wikipedia:

    "The New Order, or the New Order of Europe, was the political order which Nazi Germany wanted to impose on the conquered areas under its dominion... Among other things, it entailed the creation of a pan-German racial state structured according to Nazi ideology to ensure the supremacy of an Aryan-Nordic master race..."

    If it was up to me, I'd ban the use of the word 'hope' from all future SW films.

    Star Wars Episode IX: Duel of Fates

    I know it's a title for a piece of music in the prequels but I have always loved this title and think it fits well for Episode 9.

    I also like the duality that it was used in Revenge of the Sith, the 3rd instalment for that trilogy and it appears in the final instalment all those years later for this trilogy.

    I like it. But I think War of the Fates would be even better.

    A reliable source has informed me that the title of episode IX will be...

    The Rise of Broom Kid

    My guess is: Balance Of The Force


    I managed to guess right when it came to the Episode III title, but that one was kind of obvious at the time.

    In all seriousness, I still strongly predict that the word Skywalker will be in the title.

    So far we have had force titles in the ST, so it is possible we are going to get a political title with the word Rebellion, Resistance or First Order in it like The Rebellion Rises, Building the Resistance or The First and Last Order :D

    I think so, too. While the whole "A New Order" idea is appealing on an intellectual level, it doesn't have a particularly mythical ring to it. If you consider that previous titles have nearly always included a Star Wars-y term (Clones, Sith, Empire, Jedi, Force, Jedi... TPM and ANH being the exceptions here), it's clear that the idea has been most of the time to have a title that can be used to say "Star Wars" without saying "Star Wars". Remember how the official titles (in marketing and elsewhere) for Eps V and VI were "The Empire Strikes Back" (not "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back") and "Return of the Jedi" (not "Star Wars: Return....")

    Now what is one such term that hasn't been used before in a title, but that is still strongly associated with SW? The first thing that comes to my mind is certainly "Skywalker". My guess about Ep IX in terms of story is that it will end the Skywalker saga (for now, that is - I'm sure there will be Eps 10-12 at some point) by making the Skywalker family immortal in a sense. Let me explain: So Luke is a Force ghost now, Leia I predict will survive IX, but is not going to appear in anything going forwardd, therefore out of the saga. Kylo is thus the last of the Skywalker family, right? The problem is of course that he is the villain of the piece, so will he die at the end, therefore ending the Skywalker bloodline? Quite possibly. But I can't see TPTB not wanting to give themselves an insurance on the legacy of the original SW saga and a possible continuation of the numbered episodes. So what if "Skywalker" stops being the name of a certain family and becomes instead a title - as in "THE Skywalker", synonym essentially of "the mythical hero"? That would then of course be Rey, who had no family, who sought one, who found one in the Resistance and who then at the end adopts the name as a reflection of the fact that she carries on the legacy of the Skywalker family. With Luke now finally having attained the status of myth (cf. the ending of TLJ), why wouldn't they refer to him (and afterwards Rey) as "the Skywalker"? So the specific family we followed would then be out of the picture in the future, but their legacy of being heroes, fighting the good fight, leading the Jedi etc. would live on through their name, which has become a myth in and of itself. Kind of a nice thing to end this story on, I think. (Bonus effect for Disney: they wouldn't even make themselves liars re: "end of the Skywalker saga" once they do the inevitable in 2027, the 50-year anniversary of ANH, and do an Episode X that continues the story of Rey, Finn, Poe etc.)

    So what I can see as the title would be "SOMETHING of the Skywalker". The previously mentioned "Legacy of..." doesn't have a good ring to it, but what about "Legend of the Skywalker"? Or if they want to be more indicative of the end result of the narrative (cf. Revenge of the Sith, Return of the Jedi) and replicate the R-word scheme, how about "Rebirth of the Skywalker"? That doesn't sound all that well to my ears, granted, but wouldn't that be something to soothe fans' nerves after TLJ?

    This tittle was the rumor for The Phantom Menace at the time, 1996 and 1997, I guess was in this period. I remember to read some news about Balance of the Force back then.

    And I prefer Son of Darkness instead of Bith of a Hero.

    Anyways the tittle will be something completly new. Never seen a fan guess the right tittle before...hahaha

    I think "A New Order" is the best one I've heard, since it rhymes with A New Hope so well. I've heard there's some nazi propaganda film (or something similar) with that name, but still...it's a good title.

    That said, I'll throw my hat in the ring with this one:

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Battle Within

    "The/A New Order" is a term for the Nazi Regime, yes. So, it's unlikely that they would want to get a connections with that with their last movie.

    Inspired by @RockyRoadHux's suggestion of using the term "Day" or "Night" within the title:
