    Honestly, I hope they don't use any words that convey finality, like destiny, balance, etc. It just seems trite to me. I realize this is the last film in the trilogy and in the Skywalker saga, but I don't really want the title to say it is the last film in the story. I want something more focused on what is happening in this particular movie. Something that does not say the story is over (even though we know this particular story is over).

    I'm thinking even Disney/Lucasfilm don't know what the title is going to be yet.

    I was going to suggest taking away the starting article, but @NinjaRen beat us both to it!
    I wouldn't mind that title!

    They know the title. Basing it on The Director and The Jedi doc, they've probably known it since last year. Or at the very worst, a coin flip between multiple titles like how the Russo Brothers came to the conclusion that it should be Endgame.

    I like it!

    If it's not the title of EpIX, it REALLY needs to be the title for something else!

    ...maybe a live-action series! - Featuring Billy Dee Williams AND Donald Glover in flashbacks.

    Dominic Monaghan said only JJ knows the title. I actually think JJ didn't even know the title some weeks or even days ago. Usually a filmmaker decides for a title during post production. Yeah, it may be different for Star Wars.

    If the Episode 9 title deals more with a 'macro' theme, than I will be disappointed too for different reasons. Episode 6 (which was the final movie in the Skywalker Saga before the ST) had a title that dealt with the micro story 'Return of the Jedi.' Even though we had this galatic war going on, the heart of the story dealt with Luke/Vader and how Luke redeemed his father, so Anakin finally returned as a Jedi.

    While balancing of the Force between the light/dark in the ST is interesting, the movies still have to go deeper than that in terms of the characters. If this Trilogy ends up essentially being about balance of the Force, than what was really the point? The SW movies were always more personal than that and those character arcs are what resonates year later when you watch the movies. Balance of the Force is something that is better explored in a TV series, because it fits better in that medium.

    Today ABC will air The Force Awakens. I have a feeling we might get some sort of a tease during one of the commercial breaks, maybe even a full tite reveal. This is just speculation on my part, so don't get your hopes (too high) up.

    Yeah, I think they might tease something and then make the announcement tomorrow on Good Morning America. I’m not sure if this means anything, but ITV is also playing Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens tonight in the UK.

    I don’t know. It might just be a coincidence, but usually everything Disney/Lucasfilm does is very calculated. The Last Jedi title was also revealed on a Monday, and The Force Awakens title was revealed like, two or three days after they finished filming. It would make perfect sense for them to give us the title tomorrow.

    Admittedly I have not review all 46 pages of this thread or, in full disclosure, 1 page of it, but
    given recent MSW rumors/speculation about a threat from "The Beyond" of Aftermath playing a key role in the plot of IX,
    has anyone dropped the word "beyond" in a proposed title?

    Something like "Beyond the Force", "A Force from Beyond", "Beyond the Galaxy" or "Knights of the Beyond"?

    I have a good feeling the actual title will drop this week, so let me toss an actual speculation in there before the deadline:

    Or (going by an old EU title):


    The Unifying Force


    Though I'm still holding on Balance of the Force, pinball game be damned.

    I really like Star Wars Episode IX: Son of Darkness, not sure, but I believe Snoke called Kylo Ren that or it was basically mentioned in TLJ.
