Yes, we made you click through to find out.
The title was revealed at the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago on Friday evening. The event hosted by Stephen Colbert, and livestreamed around the world.
What does that title mean? We will now commence months and months of nerd rumours.
Earlier on Friday, it was announced that Disney would be taking a break from Star Wars movies following Episode IX.
Despite actually being pretty great, The Last Jedi was inexplicably hated by a certain subsection of dweebs on the internet. And then, the second side story movie Solo was a disappointment both critically and commercially, following a troubled production that saw geniuses Phil Lord and Christopher Miller replaced by Ron Howard.
That doesn't mean there is no more Star Wars on the horizon though. The live-action series The Mandalorian is due to debut on Dinsey's new streaming service, Disney+, on November 12th.
The series is created by Iron Man director Jon Faverau, and the ensemble cast will feature Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, and Taika Waititi.
