Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has teased fans with a glimpse of the film’s opening crawl, days after the title was finally revealed. Johnson had been unable to complete work on the title sequence until the film’s name was officially announced to fans by Lucasfilm on Monday.

On his personal Instagram account the director posted a photo of himself in the editing room (where it looked like he was getting some help from R2D2) and wrote: “Felt so good to drop this into the cut this morning.”

The official Star Wars twitter account announced Episode VIII’s title on Monday, tweeting: “It’s official. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is the next chapter of the Skywalker saga. This December.#TheLastJedi”

When asked about the film’s title by AP, Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill revealed he’d been told the title by Johnson last year. “I said, ‘Don’t tell me these things! I talk in my sleep!’” Hamill joked.

“They have us so jacked up with paranoia over leaks. It’s funny, back when we were making the original, nobody cared.” Hamill added that he liked the title as it was “straightforward and minimalist.”
