    With the recent announcement that the "A Star Wars Story" subtitle has been dropped from Solo in China, do you guys think it's possible that "Star Wars" will also be dropped from the title of Episode IX in China as well?

    For example, instead of being marketed as Star Wars: Balance of the Force, the movie would instead be marketed in China as simply Balance of the Force. Kinda like how the original marketing titles for V and VI were simply The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi (with "Star Wars" only being added to their respective marketing titles in later releases, iirc).

    I don't see how this is going to help much. I don't know much about the situation, but I assume China just isn't very interested in space war movies like Star Wars?

    I don't know why dropping the "Star Wars" part of the title would help much. They aren't stupid. They'll still know it's a Star Wars movie.

    For Star Wars to work in China, they should name episode IX, Star Wars : Fast and Furious or Pirate of the Caribbean: Star Wars.

    'Darkness rises and light to meet it'

    I agree with 'Rise of The Light' from earlier, sounds generic enough, contrasts with the more dark marketing for TLJ, fits in with ROTS and ROTJ and doesn't reuse any of the key words from this trilogy e.g 'Jedi' 'Force'

    Would sound good to me if there weren’t already way too many film franchises out there with a “Rise” title. I’d prefer not to see Star Wars become one of them. And since this is the finale, I also guess LFL will go with a more neutral, less-revealing title, a la the first two in the ST.

    I was thinking the other day about how Luke said "the rebellion is reborn" at the end of Last Jedi...

    Star Wars: The Rebellion Reborn

    That would be a decent title imo.

    Probably the most naturally/realistic-sounding possibility I've heard so far, although very very similar to two others.

    Could refer to Rey.
    Could refer to Kylo.
    Maybe even Luke if he appears in some capacity.
    Maybe even Anakin's Force ghost.

    Here's a prediction: Broom Boi will not appear at all in IX.

    The Force Awakens = Rey

    I think they will go with a more optimistic one, and shorter title to fit between Star and Wars. They did the red logo and dark advertising with TLJ.
    I wonder if they would use "Final" again after they just used Last.

    Taking into account that they intend to produce a new SW movie every year, and that there isn't an overarching plot for each trilogy, each director doing his own thing... why would it matter if it's the third movie of the trilogy? If the ST ends with a Dark Side victory or with the Galaxy in chaos, or with Rey barely starting to read the Jedi books, they will just keep the fighting during the next trilogy and during the next one afterwards...

    We all know that they'll make episode 10-12 eventually. The mainline films make too much money.

    That's my point. They don't need to give the ST a true ending because two years from now we'll have Episode 10, so they can end it with a cliffhanger of sorts (Kylo Ren dead, but the First Order still undefeated and the war still going on, for example...)
