Star Wars: The Last Jedi translates differently in other languages


Since the release of the official title for Star Wars: The Last Jedi , we’ve all known that the plural of Jedi is, in fact, Jedi, but today thanks to some international posters, there is now some new speculation thrown into the ring….

Today, February 17, there have been several international Star War: The Last Jedi posters released and with them, different translations of the main title. For instance, take the French poster, which reads: Star Wars: Les Derniers Jedi.

“Derniers” is the plural form of the adjective in that instance. And now, here’s the German poster for the film:

“Letzten” also performs the plural duties here. Now here’s the Italian version:

“Ultimi” is the plural quantifier for the Italian poster. Here’s the Spanish version with “Ultimos” serving as the plural adjective:

Again, we could be seeing a very bad case of these posters’ translations getting lost in translation, or there really could be multiple Jedi in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s not really that far fetched of an idea if you think about it. First off, both Luke Skywalker and Rey are still alive in Episode VIII, so there’s your two living Jedi…BOOM, problem solved, cased closed. But, if you want to dig further, perhaps Luke could start a whole new Jedi Academy by the end of the film.

Or, better yet, maybe there are more Jedi in hiding out there in the great wide and scary galaxy. Maybe they are just waiting for Luke to show himself so they can rally to his side in order to fight the great evil that is Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order.

We want to hear from you: Do you think these posters mean Star Wars: The Last Jedi is, in fact, plural? Or is The Last Jedi a single figure? Let’s discuss in the comments below.
