Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard that Star Wars Episode VIII got a title last week--The Last Jedi. Several things struck fans about the title. Is Rey the last Jedi, or are there more than one? Is "The Last Jedi" a reference to Luke? All of these questions remain unanswered, but one question that stands out above them all is, "What's with the Sith Red title?" Don't know what I'm talking about? Check it out:
We're used to seeing the Star Wars logo in yellow, but this time 'round, the makers of Episode VIII have deliberately decided to go with a red logo. Is Disney messing with us? Perhaps, but some fans believe this new logo forebodes something terrible in Episode VIII. It wouldn't be the first time Star Wars has appeared in red. It did also appear as red for two episodes in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series as a nod to Darth Maul, who made an appearance in these episodes. Take a look:
Red in Star Wars is synonymous with the Sith, anger, and hatred. I personally, like many other fans, fear Luke's death in Episode VIII. It seems fitting, since Disney plans to continue Star Wars beyond Episode IX, to kill off all the old characters. Spoiler alert: Han Solo died in Episode VII, and with Carrie Fisher's passing, Leia may not be far from death herself. Perhaps it's nothing, but I've got a bad feeling about what's to come in the next installment of Star Wars.
