The “Jedi” In ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Is Plural According To International Translations
Multiple sites are jerking off to multiple reports that official Star Wars: The Last Jedi translations have the “Jedi” translating into plural. Take it for what it’s worth (I don’t know what it’s worth).
After the success of The Force Awakens and Rogue One, excitement couldn’t be higher for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The eighth entry in the Skywalker Saga, it’s going to bring back all the surviving key cast – old and new – from Episode VII, add in some intriguing names, and take us deeper into Lucasfilm’s new sequel trilogy.
Of course, as the film is ten months away and a trailer not set to arrive until April, there’s very little actually known of what we can expect in December. Take the title. There’s been rampant speculation over who the “last Jedi” actually is – it could be Luke, Rey, Kylo Ren or even someone new – and what it means to the ongoing story. Beyond that, though, we don’t even know if it’s referring to Jedi in the plural or singular. Some international titles, however, may provide the answer.
The official Star Wars Twitter accounts for various international countries have shared the title of the movie in their native tongue (hat tip to Star Wars News Net). In France it’s Star Wars: Les Derniers Jedi; in Spain Los Últimos Jedi, Germany Die Letzten Jedi; and in Portuguese it’s Os Últimos Jedi. What all these titles have in common is that they use the plural form of the verb “last”, suggesting “Jedi” is indeed plural.
