    The title of this movis sounds like a disaster in the making. This is only episode 8 not the last movie. The title seems more like a conclusion to me than a second part of the movie. Ps,hope this movie is better than episode 7.

    Ps,I know this movie will be successful, but they really need a better title than this official title.
