Coming Up With Star Wars: Episode IX Title Predictions

With filming for Episode IX under way and 2018 almost over, I wanted to write up my Episode IX title predictions. Coming up with a Star Wars film title is a daunting task and I’m warning you that my predictions are probably bad and cringeworthy, but I had so much fun thinking about it!

First, I listed what we have so far, in regards to the Skywalker Saga:

The Phantom Menace

Attack of the Clones

Revenge of the Sith

A New Hope

The Empire Strikes Back

Return of the Jedi

The Force Awakens

The Last Jedi

Then I listed some words that probably would NOT be apart of the title for various reasons:

Guardian(s) – Disney’s other space property– Guardians of the Galaxy.

Resistance – I don’t think they would want people to get confused with the DisneyXD show Star Wars: Resistance.

Ominous words like Revenge, Empire, Order, Sith, Strikes, Final, Last Stand, etc. – It’s the grande finale, why end with a title that brings dread?

Anything dealing with the First Order – Similar to the reason above, Episode IX (for now) is the last installment in the Skywalker Saga, I can’t imagine them naming the last film something that has to do with the First Order striking back or getting revenge.

With that said I listed words that I felt more appropriate for the grand finale:

Knight

Balance

Spark

Rebellion

Return

Hope

Freedom

Legacy

Galaxy

I believe that Episode IX will focus on the force, the new Jedi Order, Rey and Kylo’s relationship, a victory for the Rebellion, and of course Bendemption. These are all very hopeful and positive elements in a film that will be tying everything together.

So, without further ado these are my Episode IX title predictions:

Star Wars: Legacy of the Force

Star Wars: Knights of the Rebellion

Star Wars: Spark of the Rebellion

Star Wars: Balance of the Force

Star Wars: The First Knight

My personal favorite and number one choice is Star Wars: Legacy of the Force. While it is the name of an EU book series, it’s the most perfect name I could think of that could tie the Skywalker saga together. Ben Solo is apart of a legacy that has given him so much grief and Rey has no legacy to define her, she only has the legacy she will build on her own. I think this film could even be called Star Wars: Legacies of the Force, referring to not only Rey and Ben, but Finn, Poe, and Rose who will all have their own legacies as time goes on. We know good will always prevail in Star Wars and if it’s truly the end, we know that this series will end on a satisfying note. So, what a better way to end then to name it something that goes on long after the characters are gone and refers to the everlasting Force, the one thing that started this journey in the first place.
