“Luke Skywalker has vanished” is the very first sentence to feature in the opening crawl of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But there’s another, arguably more pertinent tidbit buried in that iconic yellow text, and that’s the moment when The Force Awakens refers to Luke Skywalker as the last Jedi. So far, so straightforward.
But now that Rian Johnson’s has officially been titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a great debate has raged online regarding whether the sequel’s moniker employs the term ‘Jedi’ in a singular or plural sense. Without any official word from Disney on the matter, speculation continues to swirl, but evidence is mounting that The Last Jedi is in fact plural. At least, that’s according to the series of international one-sheets that have now surfaced for Rian Johnson’s follow-up.
First spotted by Star Wars News Net, French, Spanish and Portuguese versions of the film’s poster indicate that, yes, Jedi is plural, possibly referring to both Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker and Rey (Daisy Ridley), who can be seen wielding a lightsaber on the film’s Force Friday II promos.
Without further ado, here’s a collection of those one-sheets for you to peruse:

All will be revealed when Star Wars: The Last Jedi beams into theaters in time for December 15th. Then again, with a showcase planned for Star Wars Celebration in April, it won’t be too long before Disney and Lucasfilm lift the lid on Rian Johnson’s sci-fi sequel.
Other Star Wars projects in the works at the Mouse House include Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Han Solo anthology film and Star Wars: Episode IX, the next mainline installment to be directed by Jurassic World‘s Colin Trevorrow. They’ll bow in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
