Everybody has been trying to figure out what the title of the new Star Wars movie actually means. Who is The Last Jedi? The more appropriate question could be, how many last Jedi are there? Many have pointed out in recent days that the words might not refer to a single person, but actually more than one. After all, the plural of Jedi is still Jedi. Could The Last Jedi refer to more than one person? Let's give it a look.

At the end of Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi, as Yoda fades away, he tells Luke Skywalker that once he is gone, Luke will be the last of the Jedi. As far as we know, this statement is true. The rest of the Jedi were hunted to extinction in the events following Order 66. Only Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda survived, and by the beginning of Return of the Jedi, only their one remaining student survives. At the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Luke is found by Rey, a young woman with a powerful natural ability to use The Force. Implying there may be new Jedi once again.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Are Luke And Rey The Last Jedi?

The nearly universal agreement among fans is that The Last Jedi will deal, to a large extent, with Luke Skywalker's training of Rey to become a Jedi Knight. All of the rumors that we've heard that involve the two characters would seem to corroborate this idea. Followed to its natural conclusion, this means Rey will become a Jedi and that she and Luke Skywalker together will be The Last Jedi referenced in the title. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this idea. It all makes perfect sense and could very possibly turn out to be the truth. But what if there's more to it than that?
