Filming might be underway on Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII, but we still know very little about the next numbered entry in the sci-fi franchise. With the flick not set to drop until December 17th, 2017, it may be a while before we get any concrete details, but today, we’re hearing about two possible titles that the producers are toying with.
The first is Star Wars: Tale of the Jedi Temple, while the second is Star Wars: The Order of the Dark Side. Of course, big blockbusters always have working titles during development, so it’s highly likely that both of these are just that, and that neither will end up being used once the film hits theatres.

Of the two, however, Tale of the Jedi Temple seems like the most plausible, given how The Force Awakens ended and the fact that we know Episode VIII picks up pretty much right where its predecessor left off. Then again, I suppose The Order of the Dark Side could work as well if the film is set to explore some of the villains in a bit more depth.
Regardless, we’re hearing that Disney is going to officially unveil the film’s moniker on Star Wars Day, which is May 4th. So, still quite a ways to go then. But in the meantime, why not take to the comments section and let us know if either title works for you, and what you think they could indicate in terms of plot.
