    Actually I remember a lot of fans correctly guessing Revenge of the Sith before it’s title was revealed.

    Yeah this was the most obvious title ever. With "Revenge of the Jedi" becoming "Return of the Jedi" I think likely 90% of us thought the "Revenge of the..." would return. Other then that I cant recall correct guesses for other films.

    The rumored "Birth of a Hero" would be giving away far to much information. One way or another I would think it signifies the Skywalker family continues.

    Taking into account what Obi-Wan said about the jedi being the guardians of peace and justice for 1000 generations this would be an appropriate title...obviously implying Rey restarts a the Jedi order

    Star Wars Episode IX: Guardians of Peace

    Not even low-key, if they ran with this and made it a comedy (post-IX?) I'd totally go see it.

    My picks would be...

    Star Wars: The End of Darkness / End of Darkness
    Star Wars: Order of The Jedi
    Star Wars: Return of Balance
    Star Wars: The New Republic

    I think all of these sound more “star warsy” than some of the others. And are fitting to round the saga off as a whole.

    Really hoping that “Hope” or “spark” isn’t used in the title. That would be more fitting for the first film of the trilogy not the finale of the trilogy and entire saga.

    I also don’t think it should be a title that fixates on Kylo Ren. IE son of darkness, or The Order of Ren. They would be fitting titles if they were to end the saga with a dark side victory and no redemption/ death for Ben or Kylo. They would have been cool titles for the 2nd film in the trilogy.

    IMO these titles would be way too spoilery. Furthmore they won't use end because of "Avengers: Endgame". "Order of the Jedi" sounds too similar to "Return of the Jedi". And I hope they will never use the term "Balance" in any title.

    I actually think it should.
    TFA was for Rey.
    TLJ was for Luke.
    EPIX should be for Kylo Ren.

    What do we mean when we say a title is more 'Star Warsy'?

    I remember when The Phantom Menace was announced, and many people didn't think that title was very 'Star Warsy' back then, but it was certainly very 'space opera-ish'

    There also had only been three movies so far at that point, and one of those was (retrospectively) called 'A New Hope', which arguably isn't very 'star warsy' either, so there hadn't really been much precedent for what makes a title 'star warsy'. Of course, there had been many novels and comic series before then, and I think that's maybe where we get the idea of 'star warsy' titles.

    I would love though for ep IX to go for something a bit more corny 'space opera-ish'

    Remember the titles for the Lando Calrissian Adventures?

    Mindharp of Sharu...
    Flamewind of Oseon...
    Starcave of ThonBoka

    I'd love something along those lines! :) :p

    Totally. To me, it's the cheeseball retro sci-fi titles that feel the most Star Wars-y. Personally, The Empire Strikes Back and Attack of the Clones really do it for me. Something that could also pass as a title of an episode of Flash Gordon or something like that. The Phantom Menace is also a good one that retains that sort of vibe.

    Honestly, A New Hope always stuck out to me as the lame one. You can tell that was just added on as an afterthought.

    Some titles that come to mind in that vibe:

    Star Wars Episode IX: Curse of the Dark Side

    Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of the New Order

    Star Wars Episode IX: Masters of the Force


    Star Wars Episode IX: Ghosts of the Jedi


    I have no plot-related explanations for these though.

    I would be into that. Snoke calls him "The Master of the Knights of Ren". Perhaps that could be re-worded into something more elegant?

    Too bad "The Dark Knight" is already taken...

    Maybe just "Knights Of Ren". This could mean the actual KOR or new Jedi Knights trained by a redeemed Kylo Ren.

    What about:

    Wow how did I never think about Knights of Ren as a title. Simple. Pulpy. Slightly chessy. Perfect for a star wars title. I would change it slightly to The Knight of Ren. I always like four word titles over three .I like the multiple meanings it could have as well the same as Last Jedi.

    I'm wondering about the whole theme of redemption as controversial it might be for some in relation to Kylo Ren. But I think the theme of redemption could be connected to multiple characters and the Skywalker bloodline as a whole. Something along the lines of:

    Star Wars: The Redemption
    Star Wars: The Final Redemption

    Star Wars IX Knights of the Renaissance

    The Renaissance was a fervent period of European cultural, artistic, political and economic “rebirth” following the Middle Ages. Generally described as taking place from the 14th century to the 17th century, the Renaissance promoted the rediscovery of classical philosophy, literature and art.

    In the movie, it can show outta the darkness comes light, with a rediscovery of the beginning of the Jedi ways before the corruption. Even a new name for the Jedi? That's my 2 cents! Bal's out!

    Yeah I've thought about that too, but always with "the" in front of it. As three words, it's even better. It would work if Kylo turned to the light side and lived, and it would also work if he sacrificed himself and then Rey takes on that name for her new order in honor of him. It would even work if none of those things happened and they were simply the bad guys that must be defeated.

    It's also a good tie-in to the arcs of both main characters - Kylo wanted to run from the past, even destroy it, but Rey teaches us that we should acknowledge the mistakes of our history and learn and grow from it. Would be a relevant lesson within the Star Wars universe, as well as a lesson we could use in the real world today.

    Definitely one of the top 5 titles, IMO.

    That would have been my idea for episode 10 had it been another trilogy.

    I like Son of darkness as a title tho.

    It is simply not a continuation of Anakin Skywalker’s life, legacy. Would be better if it were called a spin off trilogy and minimized defining the end of Saga hero’s.
