Forcing Star Wars Episode VIII Titles

Disney wasn’t quite sure how many Star Wars films to add to the slate until Rogue One debuted. Admittedly, Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm said the company didn’t want to go beyond the two sequels to last year’s mega-hit The Force Awakens and the “Young” Han Solo film. Now that Rogue is a hit, we can expect more from the Force. As we await word further casting of the Solo film, and debate whether the next standalone films will center Boba Fett, a young Obi-Wan Kenobi, or someone else, the next big Star Wars news will be when the trailer to Episode VIII will debut and what its title will be. Until that information is released to the masses, I’ve decided to take a crack at what the next film’s title might be. Why? Because I’m a card-carrying SW nerd. Additionally, in these trying times, I want to attempt to make you (and me laugh). Some of these, mind you, I think would be cool titles even though I have no clue what the next film will be about. Anyway, have fun, and enjoy the holidaze ahead. Oh, and May the Force Be With You. Always.

Here we go…

About A-Sides with Jon Chattman – :
Jon Chattman’s music/entertainment series typically features celebrities and artists (established or not) from all genres performing a track, and discussing what it means to them. This informal series focuses on the artist making art in a low-threatening, extremely informal (sometime humorous) way. No bells, no whistles — just the music performed in a random, low-key setting followed by an unrehearsed chat. In an industry where everything often gets overblown and over manufactured, Jon strives for a refreshing change. (Theme song by Blondfire.) Artists featured on the series include Imagine Dragons, Melissa Etheridge, Yoko Ono, Elle King, Joe Perry, Alice Cooper, James Bay, Jimmy Eat World, Charli XCX, Marina and the Diamonds, and Bastille.
