STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Director Rian Johnson Confirms That The Title Refers ONLY To Luke Skywalker

It looks like we can put all those "is it plural?" debates to rest, as Rian Johnson has now confirmed that The Last Jedi of the title refers only to Luke Skywalker, and not his new apprentice...

When the title for the next installment in the main Star Wars saga was announced as Star Wars: The Last Jedi, many fans became (overly) curious as to who it actually referred to. Was it Luke? Rey? Both? The situation was not helped by the release of an Italian promo poster for the film, which seemed to confirm that the "Jedi" was indeed plural.

Though it doesn't sound like it'd have made much difference to the plot one way or the other, director Rian Johnson has now put all of the fan-theories to rest by confirming which force-wielder is the focus of the title. “In my mind [‘The Last Jedi’] is singular,” he said during an interview with GMA. “They say in ‘The Force Awakens’ that [Luke] has gone to find the last Jedi temple and Luke’s the last Jedi.”

Johnson was also asked about another long-standing sourse of speculation, and revealed that Rey's true parentage is something "that is absolutely going to be addressed" in the film, but stopped just short of saying too much about it.

Check out the vids for yourselves below. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit theaters this December.
