With Star Wars: Episode VIII now filming, the working title for the movie has now been revealed via Carrie Fisher on Twitter.

Fisher posted an image of her dog with a director's chair from the set where "Space Bear" is featured.

Movie studios use working titles in place of the film's actual title to help disguise and mask that the movie is getting made.

Disney has yet to release the actual title.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was said to use "AVCO," with Star Wars: Rogue One using "Lunak Heavy."

Star Wars: Episode VIII has a December 16, 2017 release directed by Rian Johnson starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.
