Thank you, Spanish Language, For Telling Us How Many Jedi There Are In ‘Star Wars Episode VIII’
How many Jedi are “the last” in Star Wars Episode VII: The Last Jedi? As many a nerf herder pointed out after the title was first revealed last month, the plural of Jedi is also Jedi, so none of us could actually say for sure. Does the title refer singularly to Luke Skywalker, the last guy in the galaxy to receive training from an official Jedi master (that we know of, I assume)? Or to Rey, the new force sensitive hotshot who’s about to get her own training on? Or to both at the same time?
Yeah, probably that last one, we’re thinking. And the reason we think that is today, a few international titles were released in Spanish, French, and German, all of which that have stricter plural adjective agreements than English does.
So it’s official. It’s not El Último Jedi. It’s Los Últimos Jedi. Meaning more than one. This is why knowing a second language is important, kids.
Now, the real question is: is it just gonna be Luke and Rey, or are they gonna pull a a New Jedi Order on us (for the second time in canon, since Luke had an Order between VI and VII) and start finding padawans to train? Maybe an old man Ezra from Star Wars Rebels? You know, if he isn’t the true identity of Emperor Snoke or whatever.
