The word ‘Jedi’ can be used to describe one person or a group, and up until now most fans thought the ‘Jedi’ in the title “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” was only referencing Luke Skywalker. That doesn’t seem to be the case.
In the films, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda were the only known Jedi that survived the infamous ‘Order 66’ that killed off all of the Jedi, leaving only Luke Skywalker. By the end of the original trilogy, only Luke remained. Now, new international posters have the fans buzzing even more, giving hope that more Jedi might pop-up in the films, or at least a few Padawans might get promoted.
A German poster may have spilled the beans, or at least confirmed Rey’s status in the new film. The German title is “Die Letzten Jedi” which is the plural use, when talking about more than one Jedi. If the title was referencing a singular Jedi, the movie-title would be “Der Letzte Jedi”.
Language on other posters are pointing to the same result, though Disney has yet to confirm the title’s vague use of the word. This still leaves a lot of the plot up in the air however, since there are multiple ways that you can have more than one Jedi in Episode 8.
If the plural Jedi is true, it could simply be referring to Rey and Luke, who met at the final moments of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Rey could be finished with her basic training, and taking her final steps into becoming a Jedi under Luke’s tutelage. Others believe that there is still hope for Kylo, who could be saved from the Dark Side of the force, and later join forces with Luke and Rey in the fight against Snoke.
Disney is staying quiet for now, the company recently announced that “Force Friday 2″ is in the works, which will be a gigantic fans event that will unveil the new merchandise for the upcoming film.
