A long time ago, but really only a year or so, rumors of a new Star Wars film have been making their way across the galaxy, far, far, away. Now, a new rumor is bringing a title along with the Daisy Ridley-led action epic.

According to TheDisInsider.com, the next full-feature big-screen Star Wars movie will be titled Star Wars: Episode X—A New Beginning. The film will star Ridley as Rey, and we can only guess that it will pick up where we left off from the last feature film, Episode IX—The Last Skywalker. As you may remember, the film ended with scenes showing gifted children with what looks like "Jedi-type" powers.

The film is slated to start filming at the U.K. Pinewood Studios sometime in the early fall, late summer.

Disney is facing major backlash over their Disney Plus series, The Acolyte. The series takes viewers to 100 years before the first origin films featuring Anakin Skywalker. The series is supposed to lay out the origins but so far, the first two episodes have been met with a lot of controversy and the third episode is said, as one critic calls it, a "forever changing episode and not in a good way."

The Acolyte is taking Star Wars into the "woke" arena, where a heavily influenced LGBTQ community is being built. This isn't being met well with the hard-core fans of the franchise. This isn't helping the franchise that has been spiraling downward since Rian Johnson took on Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Critically panned and considered one of the worst additions to the franchise's origin series, Disney is hoping that a new beginning, an apt title as well, can turn around a series that is bathed in fandom.

With the new title now apparently revealed, will A New Beginning, indeed, take the franchise into a new future of success, or will Disney's current issues with their Plus series kill it before it gets going?
