The Star Wars franchise is so unfathomably huge that every single facet of the upcoming Episode VIII will be scrutinized, speculated and debated upon until the movie is eventually released in December 2017.

Filming has only just begun on the next adventure to a galaxy far, far away, but already there are scores of rumors as to what the eventual title of the movie will be. That's understandable, as it could give an indication of the direction of the plot.

One rumor that has surfaced on Reddit is that director Rian Johnson's installment will be called Star Wars: Tale Of The Jedi Temple. The source is a promotional card which was allegedly leaked with the name on it; check it out below:

Above "leaks" should be taken with a healthy dose of cynicism because, let's face it, it wouldn't be the most difficult thing in the world to fake. Also, the title does sway toward the cheesy side.

The second rumor doing the rounds at the moment spawned from a Croatian news article (filming is taking place in the idyllic city of Dubrovnik). The article suggested the name would be Star Wars: The Order Of The Dark Side which, personally, I think sounds better than Tale Of The Jedi Temple.

Ultimately, until we get an official announcement (which could be on international Star Wars Day, May the 4th), we'll never be certain, so it's always worth remaining skeptical when such rumors surface.

Until then, check out the fully, 100 percent, legitimately official teaser clip with the next Episode below:
