Is ‘Jedi’ in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ title plural?

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is set for release on December 15

Fans are debating whether the “Jedi” part of the next Star Wars title, The Last Jedi, is plural or singular, with various language translations called into play.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 15. Disney’s CEO has reportedly seen the film already and called it “a great next chapter in the iconic Skywalker family saga”.

Now IGN Germany reports that the new German title for the film – Die Letzten Jedi – seemingly proves that it is plural, otherwise it would have been “Der Letzte Jedi”.

It has also been reported that the Spanish translation points to it being plural, while previously the Brazilian translation suggested singular usage. However, an earlier official tweet with the Brazilian title has since been deleted.

Fans have been debating the semantics to work out if the new film will focus on multiple Jedi or a single Jedi.

Earlier this month (February), a Star Wars fan came up with a credible-sounding theory as to the identity of Rey’s father, a major talking point among fans.

Meanwhile, a new actor has been cast as iconic Star Wars character R2-D2, replacing the late Kenny Baker.

Fleabag‘s Phoebe Waller-Bridge has reportedly been cast in the forthcoming Star Wars spin-off film focusing on a young Han Solo. The actress responded to these rumours earlier this week at the V05 NME Awards 2017.
