While it isn't a working title per se, Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi was registered under the company Space Bear Industries (UK) Limited, with the working title of "Space Bear." This doesn't mean that filming is close to commencing, but it indicates Lucasfilm is ready to employ staff under the banner of E&E Industries.

Recently, rumors suggested the future of Johnson's trilogy was in doubt, but he himself has since debunked those rumors. This isn't the first time it's been rumored Johnson was off the project. The director previously confirmed he was still working on the trilogy in September of last year.
