    Akin to
    Ep. 7 - Foodles/AVCO
    Ep. 8 - Space Bear

    A nonsense name that has no bearing on the final film.

    Black diamond.

    A negatively precious thing.

    A Sith who is trying to find the light.

    "Black Dimond" is also a term for skiing. A black dimond is the most difficult ski slope. That's a quite fitfing working title if you ask me. JJ has to bring the ST to a conclusion and satisfy a lot of people.

    It's going to be a skiing movie. Maybe a return to Hoth?

    Actually the space Bear title does have some meaning to the plot (from a certain point of view)

    https://www.ewbankauctions.co.uk/catalog_images/auction//large/nr005926-1_1.jpg

    The space bear cap which was actually a Panda was used by the crew throughout filming.


    The panda was often compared to the yin and yang because of its black and white spots. The colors stand in stark contrast to one another one the animal's pelt. The panda's calm demeanor was a demonstration of how, when balanced, the yin yang were harmonious and peaceful.

    Definitely can be related to the plot and especially the prime Jedi mosaic which heavily resembles the Yin and Yang symbol.

    It's......different.

    Well I guess they couldn't name it "the resistance strikes back" or such baloney
    Unusual title for a SW movie though.

    Oh well, at least it's original

    This isn't the actual title, it's just the working title. It joins the lexicon of other working titles like "Red Cup" for Solo, "Space Bear" for Episode 8 and "Los Alamos" for Rogue One.

    Only Rogue One's working title had any relevance to the actual movie.

    Maybe I'm just being optimistic but I think Black Diamond actually does mean something to the film, it's not comical like Red Cup or Space Bear... it sounds kind of ominous. Plus... Snoke had that big black diamond ring thingy on his pinky, we'll see I guess.

    Ah, I wasn't aware of that.
    I do feel we haven't seen the last of Snoke though, they just want us to believe that he's dead.

    Real title?
    Resurrection/Rise of the Sith?

    Nah.....Resembles Revenge of the Sith too much.

    I Don’t Think Snoke Is Dead But I Don’t Think He Will Be In Episode 9 Because He Is Too OP, But Black Diamond Means Nothing, Episode 8 Was Space Bear And Episode 6 Was Blue Harvest, See What I Mean?

    Wasn't there a black diamond from the catacombs of Vader's castle on Snoke's ring? ;)

    But I do love the skiing analogy. "more experience required".

    I agree, I work in Visual FX and we use code names for everything. for example here are some that we worked on that have no correlation at all

    Guardian of the Galaxy - Full Tilt
    Xmen Days of Future Past - Hello Kitty Project (I kid you not)
    Godzilla - Nautilus

    those are just a few...so I would not look to much into them guys (sorry to disappoint)
