LOVE the title. But then again I would be okay with any title.
Perhaps, however that's still not the official Star Wars logo. So it's still somewhat unusual. Speaking of which, I never really realized it but they don't do stand alone logos for the individual films anymore, do they?
This is the nittiest of nitpicks, but it's interesting that they're using the same (arguably erroneous) title font as The Force Awakens used, as opposed to the title font used in the crawls for Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
Something tells me episode VIII is going to (easily) be better than TFA and R1 combined.
Hopefully they won't commit a grievous punctuation error like Return of the Jedi by failing to include a terminal (four-dot) ellipsis, as all other Star Wars movies have done. This symbol indicates the normal end of the text (using a period) while teasing more to come (using an ellipsis). There was certainly "more to come" after Episode VI's crawl ended!
God, imagine if they shoved a semi-colon in there at the end of Episode VIII. I'd come unglued!
I'd guess it's a coincidence but I do like that the Episode VII and VIII titles seemingly connect. Fingers crossed that they go with From His Nap for Episode IX.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise packaging gives first look at Rey, Finn and Poe in Episode VIII:
They should just put out the empty box exactly as shown. I bet they sell a bunch of them.
It's not empty! It's a PRODUCT NAME with PRODUCT DESCRIPTION that contains ACTION and FEATURE CALLOUTs! I want one.
I love that 6 and a half months before its release, they're already touting the new merchandise.
Absolutely soulless, isn't it? We don't even have anything yet, but we will, and you will buy it. Doesn't matter what it is.
I remember when someone came up with something first, and the box was a total afterthought.
The reason this image is out there is that this weekend is the International Toy Fair, where items from the new Star Wars film will certainly be shown. It's an industry practice, to get buyers to see the goods and order them in time for the fall. The toys themselves are the big reveal; the box art is out there as a taste.
There's nothing unusual or particularly craven about this.
Yeah, Toy Fair is to the toy industry what Comic Con is to summer movies- it's the annual big industry show so they have to talk up their big product for the year. I think the packaging is the only thing they'll show off though because I think they'll wait to display toys until Comic Con in July or maybe even Star Wars Celebration in April.
BTW, the reveal of the title of Episode VIII in French and in Spanish confirms that "Jedi" is meant to be plural in this case.
It's not really a spoiler, especially if you can read French or Spanish.
Not like they haven't done it before.
Referring to the days of the boxes of IOUs for Star Wars merchandise back in '77?
Oh, yes. The "Early Bird Kit." What a great way to spin "We got jack shit, kiddies. Maybe next Christmas."
