With Rogue One, we saw most of the product names shielded with animal designations such as shark, seal, owl, unicorn, etc. Episode VIII product will follow suit adapting the NATO phonetic alphabet with terms like “Victor”, “Tango” and “Foxtrot”. These names have been spotted in databases already so get ready to learn and speculate as to what they may stand for in the film.
