Topps is celebrating the generational culmination of the Star Wars saga with a commemorative set highlighting some of the greatest moments from a galaxy far away. The Topps Star Wars Saga set features characters and iconic scenes from the original trilogy, prequels and newest films concluding with Episode IX. Topps will only bring out three new Star Wars Galactic Moment cards each week, as they countdown to Episode IX. Each week’s set will only be available for seven days and Topps will only print as many cards as ordered, the minimum print run has been 556, and the lowest 312, so it’s going to quite an exclusive set. The cards will be available individually or as a set of three.

Topps : Star Wars Galactic Moments: Countdown to Episode IX Checklist and Print Runs
My checklist will expand as new cards are released each week.
With Star Wars: Episode IX now under a year away and we still don’t even know what the movie’s title will be, and how it will offer closure on the current trilogy, but the entire Skywalker saga. But this hasn’t stopped the internet from coming up with potential titles for Episode IX, and some of them are pretty awesome!.
So I’ve rounded up the best leaks, rumours, and theories on the title of Star Wars: Episode IX, as well as creating a high-resolution for the each of the Star Wars IX titles.
So here are the ten best possible titles, which I feel like there’s a pretty good chance one of them could be it…or I could be wrong.
1: Star Wars Episode IX Son of Darkness This is one of the most current rumours to potential reveal the official Star Wars: Episode IX title. It comes from a Reddit who claims the person who provided him with the Episode IX title previously gave him info that was correct, so he is assuming the “Star Wars: Son Of Darkness” title is legit.
“Son Of Darkness”was a line actually spoken by Snoke to Kylo-Ren in The Last Jedi, when Snoke used The Force to turn Rey to Kylo and said, “My worthy apprentice, Son of Darkness, heir apparent to Lord Vader, where there was conflict I now sense resolved, where there was weakness, strength. Complete your training and fulfil your destiny.” After another exchange, Kylo then uses The Force on Rey’s lightsaber and kills Snoke.
…Star Wars: Son Of Darkness sounds a great title.
2: Star Wars Episode IX Rule of Two The Rule of Two was a Sith philosophy mandating that only two Sith Lords could exist at any given time: a master to embody the power of the dark side of the Force, and an apprentice to crave it. But what if this Star Wars Episode IX title can be applied to Kilo and Rey, thus ending the Rule of Two and the Sith and they bring balance to the Force.
3: Star Wars Episode IX A New Order
This Star Wars Episode IXcould be some sort of middle ground between Sith and Jedi, with the Skywalker saga ending, then what comes next? The New Order could be a reference to the First Order’s new reign, or most likely, the Sith and Jedi becoming one.
4: Star Wars Episode IX A Spark of Hope
Could the final scene of The Last Jedi have also set the stage for a film that is expected to focus on the Resistance effort to find new collaborators in their Rebellion against the First Order.
5: Star Wars Episode IX The Order of Ren
This Star Wars Episode IX title is one of my favourites, with Kylo Ren now in charge, so why not rename the First Order after him. This title would also position Episode IX to focus on the Knights of Ren, who are still a BIG mystery
6: Star Wars Episode IX The Balance of the Force
What if Rey and Kylo can make peace by the end of Episode IX, that will finally put an end to the endless battle between Sith and Jedi. Balancing the force would put a cap on the Skywalker trilogy without having to kill off the last remaining Skywalkers.
ALTERNATIVE OPTION: Red (Sith) & Blue (Jedi) Make Purple
7: Star Wars Episode IX : The Last Skywalker Star Wars : A New Hope was originally titled The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, so IX is supposed to be the culmination of the entire Skywalker saga, and this title plays directly into that theory. Much in the same way The Last Jedi title raised the question of who it was referring to. So it could be Leia or Kylo Ren (or maybe even Rey if J.J. Abrams decides to just undo Episode VIII…Hopefully).
8: Star Wars Episode IX : The Rebellion Reborn
More Reddit rumours has it Episode IX is largely focussing on the Resistance building up a new Rebellion army on the outer rim of the galaxy, so this title would support that leak. It also reflects the fact that with the First Order now basically in charge of the galaxy the Resistance is shifting back into being a Rebellion against the First Order.
9: Star Wars Episode IX : Shadow of the Empire
This was J.J. Abrams original title for The Force Awakens, and it could work here with the First Order on the rise and looking more ‘Empire’ like every day. Also with the rumour flying about Darth Vader’s ghost appearing in Episode IX, this now makes even more sense. And with an added treat, it was also the name of a Nintendo 64 Star Wars game.
10: Star Wars Episode IX : Revenge of the Jedi
This was at one point the planned title of Star Wars Episode VI : Return of the Jedi, and would be a nice reference to the original trilogy, and also helps set up the big conflict between Kylo (Sith) and Rey (Jedi).
But what if director J.J. Abrams can’t put an end on the entire trilogy with just one movie? Is it possible Star Wars could pull an Infinity War and end on a major cliffhanger?
….Star Wars: Episode X!! ??
UPDATED TITLE OPTIONS
Sources – Reddit: Star Wars Leaks, Apple News & Inverse
Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant have now also joined the cast, and Variety previously reported that Keri Russell was in talks to join the cast for “Star Wars Episode IX.” with their sources confirming Keri Russell has just closed her deal to join the film just before the announcement.
Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, 2018. J.J. Abrams returns to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio.
Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, and Keri Russell, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.
The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” says Abrams. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honour Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”
Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with Episode IX.
Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Michelle Rejwan, and executive produced by Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin. The crew includes Dan Mindel (Director of Photography), Rick Carter and Kevin Jenkins (Co-Production Designers), Michael Kaplan (Costume Designer), Neal Scanlan (Creature and Droid FX), Maryann Brandon and Stefan Grube (Editors), Roger Guyett (VFX Supervisor), Tommy Gormley (1st AD), and Victoria Mahoney (2nd Unit Director).
