AceShowbiz - "Star Wars Episode VIII", which is currently in production, already has a working title and you may need to bear with it because it's called "Space Bear". Yes, it's pretty unique, but it is not going to be used as the official title for the movie when it's released in theaters.
It's star Carrie Fisher who confirmed the working title by sharing a behind-the-scenes picture. The General Leia depicter posted on Twitter a photo of her dog Gary Fisher sitting on her chair featuring the logo.
