This news might be shocking to some fans of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi." It seems that when that title is translated into different languages, which they will be once the movie is released globally, the term connotes plurality and not a singularity. If this is true, then "The last Jedi" is not only Luke Skywalker but possibly many others.
Is Luke Being "The Last Jedi" No Longer True?
Therefore the theory that Luke Skywalker is "The last Jedi" will not hold water any longer - if this current theory is true. Fans have to admit that these are all speculations so they need to take these theories with a grain of salt. Until there is confirmation about this matter coming from the producers of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," fans will have to hold their breath.
The Title Could Be A Collective Term
Some believe that the term in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" could likely refer to more than one Jedi, just as much as "The Last Samurai" meant more than one last Samurai. In this theory, Luke or Rey is definitely not the last Jedi, but collectively the last of their clan. Some say that the title should be understood in the plural sense.
Foreign Titles Of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" Say It's Plural
This particular issue came to light overnight when the titles were revealed in the foreign film markets. The different translations of the title showed up in their respective official twitter accounts. There were those coming from Italy, Brazil, Spain, Germany and France. But there is one common thing about all of them: the title gave a sense of plurality.
Here Are Some Translation Examples
Take a look at the example of Spain. The film title of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" was translated in Spanish in this way: #StarWars:#LosUltimosJedi, 15 de Diciembre en cines. In France, it was translated #StarWars: #LesDerniersJedi, December 2017 au cinema. And in Italy, the title was translated Gli Ultimi Jedi, Diciembre 2017 al cinema. All of these terms connote plurality of the subject. In other words, there is a likely possibility that "The Last Jedi" is not only Luke or Rey but many others.
