When Disney announced last month that Star Wars Episode VIII would be subtitled The Last Jedi, the studio ignited much fanboy debate about whether the name referred to just one Jedi or multiple. But thanks to international language social media promotions for the film, the singular versus plural confusion is no more.
And, as it turns out, Luke Skywalker won’t be the only Jedi to appear on screen in The Last Jedi. German and Spanish language promotional tweets about the film revealed that the titular Jedi are plural, without going so far as to reveal who these other Jedi are or how many more than one their numbers shall be.
Over on Star Wars’ Spanish Twitter account today, Disney tweeted pictured of the movie’s Spanish language title card with “Los Últimos Jedi” on it. “Los,” of course, indicates that the noun “Jedi” is plural.
In case there was any doubt that this was a typo or other mistake, Star Wars’ French account tweeted the subtitle as Les Derniers Jedi while the German account tweeted the subtitle as Die Letzten Jedi. Again, these all translate to more than one Jedi.
The only question that remains, is if Luke and presumed protege Rey are the only two Jedi being referenced in the subtitle, or if theater-goers will see Luke training a larger group of Force users.
