Sorta.

Last week, it was announced that production has kicked off on the set of “Star Wars: Episode VIII”. The official announcement also came with news of confirmed cast members Benicio Del Toro (of “The Usual Suspects” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” fame), Laura Dern (of “Jurassic Park” and “Wild” fame), and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

Now, the “Star Wars” producers are famed for being tight-lipped. But with the production in full swing and “Star Wars” fans waiting with bated breaths for more “Star Wars: Episode VIII” news and teasers, Carrie Fisher has taken the liberty to unveil the too-adorable-to-ignore working title:

That’s right. It says “Space Bear: Episode VIII”, complete with a little panda bear emoji.

Of course, this will not reflect the “Star Wars: Episode VIII” plot at all (no, it’s not going to be a movie centred on the Wookiees) and we doubt that it’s meant to provide any hints about the new movie. What we do know is that it’s a fake title that was discovered as far back as 2014 and confirmed back in January.

And just in case you think that using peculiar working titles is a little strange, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” had the working title of “Foodles Productions Ltd.” – a reference to the Disney-affiliated snack of the same name. “Return of the Jedi” was made under the title “Blue Harvest”, while the prequel trilogy was made under the name “JAK Productions”. Don’t ask us where they get their inspirations from!

We gotta say though that that’s a pretty good decoy title to throw people off, if any of the cast or crew had to refer to it outside of the set. Also, for those curious, no, that dog is not part of the “Star Wars: Episode VIII” cast – that adorable dog is Carrie Fisher’s pet bulldog Gary, and he has his own custom action figure:

“Star Wars: Episode VIII” will be released on 15th December 2017.
