Star Wars The Last Jedi: For Rian Johnson, the title The Last Jedi is in the singular

Cinema 18 April, 2017

In a recent interview, director Rian Johnson said the title The Last Jedi was in the singular and not the plural, as the French title suggests.

When the international title of Star Wars 8 was unveiled to us last January , we all wondered whether The Last Jedi was singular or plural. Then the French title arrived, The Last Jedi , and there was no longer any need to ask the question, if not who were these last famous jedi. But the director Rian Johnson himself is turning everything upside down. Indeed, for him, The Last Jedi is definitely a title in the singular and not in the plural. “It’s so much fun when people ask me this ,” he told ABC NEWS at the Star Wars Celebration last week. “As a matter of fact, I had never even thought about it. In my mind, it is singular , “he added. But he did not stop there! In this interview, Rian Johnson was obviously in a chattering mood as he also revealed who the Last Jedi was! “As to whether Luke is the Last Jedi, they say in The Revelation of the Force that he will find the last Jedi temple and Luke is the Last Jedi ,” he said.
Knowing that it was he who realized the eighth episode, difficult to make more reliable. And yet, one might wonder if these confidences are true or if Rian Johnson would not play with our nerves to bring us to confusion until the final revelation, next December. After all, why reveal such a spoiler, especially the identity of the Last Jedi? The Lucasfilm and Disney studios are keen to hide important things from us and this confidence is clearly part of it. Afterward, perhaps Luke Skywalker is actually the Last Jedi, but nothing prevents the emergence of new ones, like Rey, who has clearly revealed skills to master the Force. Also, why would Luke lead Rey, as we saw in the official trailer of Star Wars: The Last Jedi , If not to train her to become a new Jedi? That is the question and it will certainly be necessary to wait until December 13th for the answer. And you what do you think ?
