The next Star Wars film is called 'The Last Jedi'

Is The Last Jedi Luke or Rey?

Get excited, Star Wars fans. The next installment of the movie franchise has a name.

The eighth film in the Star Wars saga will be called The Last Jedi, and follows on from the seventh movie, The Force Awakens, which was released in December 2015.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will get its release Dec. 15.

The question now is to whom the title refers. Given his appearance at the end of The Force Awakens and the fact we know for sure that he's a Jedi, Luke Skywalker would be the obvious choice.

But Daisy Ridley's character Rey acquired use of "The Force" during the seventh film and has sought out Skywalker, so the title could also be referring to her potential training by Luke to become "The Last Jedi."

This, in turn, kind of makes it sound as if Luke will die.

This is something fans on Twitter immediately picked up on.

Others disagree though – and we should also bear in mind that "Jedi" is both a singular and a plural, so it could actually be referring to both Luke and Rey.
