Universal has renamed its Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy “Sisters,” ditching “The Nest” as a title.

“Sisters” faces off against Disney’s upcoming “Star Wars” movie on Dec. 18, 2015.

“Pitch Perfect” director Jason Moore directs from a script by Paula Pell about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final party.

Also starring are Maya Rudolph, Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Dianne Wiest, John Cena and James Brolin. Fey produces with Jay Roach and John S. Lyons and Poehler exec produces with Jeff Richmond and Brian Bell.
