Disney’s Secret Plans to Rename The Last Jedi

Lucasfilm is one of only two brands in the world that can drop three mysterious words — The Last Jedi — and immediately melt down the internet as everyone tries to decipher what it all means. The good folks at the Walt Disney Imagineering Department of Namin’ Things! (DON’T!) solved this problem long ago. If Lucasfilm had […]

The Shaggy Yeti
