Star Wars: Forces of Destiny
With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story only a few days and Star Wars: Episode VIII now just a year away from release, it’s only a matter of time until we start getting some news (and maybe even a teaser trailer?) for the second instalment of the Sequel Trilogy, and a trademark filing this week may have potentially revealed the title for Rian Johnson’s follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
According to European Union Intellectual Property Office, Lucasfilm has filed a trademark in the Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, which contains a lengthy list of goods which includes items from golf bags to ladies suspenders, as well as toys and most interestingly, motion pictures.
So, could Star Wars: Forces of Destiny be the title for Star Wars: Episode VIII? Would Lucasfilm be careless enough to reveal it through a trademark filing? And how does it compare to the previous rumoured titles Star Wars: Tale of the Jedi Temple, Star Wars: The Order of the Dark Side, and Star Wars: Fall of the Resistance?
