Star Wars: The Last Jedi Not What You May Think

February 19, 2017 , , ,

On January 23, 2017, the title for Episode VIII was finally revealed to Star Wars fans everywhere: The Last Jedi.

This title led to so much speculation, was Luke the last Jedi?  Was Rey?  Someone else??  The rumors start flowing and speculation rises.  Some have even taken the title from Episode VII and combined it with Episode VIII and formed a larger title that will include Episode IX.

“The Force Awakens The Last Jedi”

The debate still goes on, though, who is the last Jedi?  The word Jedi is actually both singular and plural.  Most fans automatically thought this implies that there is only one last Jedi, but thanks to International Titles appearing in the last few days we now know differently.  The titles listed below are from France, Germany, Italy, Brazil and Spain.  In each of the other languages – unlike English – the demonstrative adjectives and articles define whether the following nouns are singular or plural.


Singular would read “Le Dernier Jedi”


Singular would read “Der Letzte Jedi”


Singular would read “L’ultimo Jedi”


Singular would read “O Último Jedi”


Singular would read “El Ultimo Jedi”

So these new titles, which were released on the official Star Wars twitter accounts for each country, confirm that there is more than one Jedi.  We just now have to wait and see who besides Luke is a Jedi.  Speculation is high that Rey must be a Jedi, but is that all?  Only time will tell.  Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15, 2017.
