'Star Wars' Fans Are Freaking Out Because 'Jedi' In 'The Last Jedi' Is Plural

Speculation about the ninth film in the "Star Wars" franchise, "The Last Jedi," cropped up as soon as the title was revealed.

The latest rumor pertains to what's been featured on the non-English posters for the film.

Fans on Twitter have noticed that "Jedi" in "The Last Jedi" is plural in both the German and French titles.

Since the plural and singular forms of "Jedi" in English are the same, the foreign language posters indicate that the title doesn't refer to just one Jedi, but several (or at least two).

The pluralization could signal that Luke Skywalker, a Jedi, isn't going to be killed. Many fans had wondered whether, if the "Jedi" in the title were singular, that Luke would have to die in order to leave Rey as the titular "Last Jedi." Really, all this means is that Luke won't be the last Jedi.

"The Last Jedi" comes out Dec. 15, 2017, and presumably picks up where 2015's "The Force Awakens" left off.


We've reached out to Lucasfilm regarding the pluralization and will update this piece accordingly.
