Star Wars: Episode VIII (Mild Spoilers)

The title has been revealed.... And seemingly, my initial thoughts, would be this would be fitting for an Episode IX.

But I suppose it gives us an idea of a plot.

I find the title kind of ironic considering a major theme and premise of the expanded universe novels was that Luke wasn't in the fact the Last Jedi, but the first in a new line of Jedi.

Maybe the next group won't be "Jedi".

First and last are pretty interchangeable terms until/if more come.  Luke/Rey or Luke and Rey (Jedi is the plural of Jedi) can be the last jedi up to this point, just as they could be the first jedi of a new order.  Some people on the internet are reading way too much into this title.

Considering Mark Hamill himself has encouraged speculation as to the film right after the title was revealed, including calling the film a "Samurai" film...um...yeah, gonna have to disagree with that.

I think the title probably uses jedi in the plural sense for reasons that will be revealed in the movie.

That's an interesting theory...

So I was watching a news roundup on youtube called the Know (it's mostly gaming news) and I thought I'd share one of the highlights here... namely that Ouflah was correct. Several renditions of the title, including the French, Spanish and German versions, are more clear in the use of "Jedi" in the plural sense... you can check that out here if you're curious.

I saw that Tomato, as well as a new look at the younger main characters from toy packaging from John Boyega himself: https://t.co/RX26MKBkHx

I assume that's who I think it is... and I suppose I can guess why they said it.... But maybe it's just a little too far?

Pretty dramatic though.

My guess is that's Luke response when Rey comes to him wanting to be trained by THE legendary Jedi she heard stories about. He is completely done with training anyone much less calling himself a Jedi worthy of the name after his own dream went up in smoke.
