Take a deep breath because your mind is about to be blown! The title for ‘Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’ is PLURAL! Yes, there are several Jedi and now fans are completely flipping out. We’ve got the details!
Oh man! We can thank foreign languages for helping us discover that the title for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is plural rather than singular. Disney has released the international poster art for the film and in Spanish it refers to “Los Ultimos Jedi,” which definitely refers to more than one Jedi. In German it translates into “Die Letzten Jedi” which is the plural version. Now we don’t have to play a guessing game as to if Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker or Daisy Ridley’s Rey is “the one,” because there are several last Jedi. Hooray!

the Jedi in the title Star Wars: The Last Jedi is plural in German so it is referring to Luke AND Rey

We’ve already pretty much determined that Luke will be training Rey during much of Episode VIII, and there were hints in The Force Awakens that Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda might be making appearances. Anakin’s ghost has been rumored to show up, so we could have a number of generational Jedi in the latest Star Wars installment.

This news comes straight on the heels of our first look at Rey, Poe Dameron and Finn in Episode VIII, as Disney showed off a teaser pic for the film’s merchandise, which goes on sale Sept. 1. Rey has a new longer hairstyle and is sporting a lightsaber, which had many fans claiming that the title must refer to her, even though Luke Skywalker is still around in the movie. Fans can officially stop arguing about it because thanks to the foreign language translations, we’ve got several last Jedi in the highly anticipated film which is due out Dec. 5, 2017.
