We had previously heard rumors that the working title of Rian Johnson’s currently untitled Star Wars Episode VIII would be “Space Bear,” but that has now been confirmed by Carrie Fisher. The actress recently tweeted out an image of her pug, Gary Fisher, lying on her chair at Pinewood Studios, confirming the long-rumored title (as seen on the logo). Here’s the tweet:

However, the official title of the movie still remains a mystery, but it should be revealed before the year is out, since the title of Episode VII was revealed a week after the movie wrapped principal photography. For now, feel free to speculate on the potential title in the comment section below.
Star Wars Episode VIII opens in theaters on December 15, 2017.
