Ever for the reason that title of the following Star Wars film was introduced as “The Final Jedi” again in January, followers have debated the which means of these three little phrases.
Is Jedi singular or plural? Does it refer, as many followers suppose, to Luke Skywalker, or to younger up-and-comer Rey? Does it seek advice from Luke working with Rey? Or possibly it is another person all collectively? (Finn! Poe! Jar Jar Binks — ha, simply kidding there.)
“Final Jedi” director Rian Johnson informed ABC Information on Friday that he was shocked by all of the confusion.
“It is so humorous when folks began asking that,” he mentioned. “I had by no means even contemplated that query. In my thoughts, (Jedi is) singular. In my thoughts it’s.”
And if that is not clear sufficient, Johnson went even additional. “As as to if Luke is the ‘Final Jedi,’ they are saying in ‘The Pressure Awakens‘ he’ll discover the final Jedi temple and Luke is the final Jedi,” he mentioned.
Will that finish the talk? Good attempt, Johnson, however debating the main points is half the enjoyable, and there are nonetheless eight months to go. Should you suppose that is over, these will not be the droids you are in search of.
“The Final Jedi,” whoever the heck he’s, opens on December 15, 2017.
