The title for Episode VIII aka the Skywalker Saga has been revealed. But who exactly is The Last Jedi? Obvious answer points to it being Luke Skywalker. He was referred as the moniker in the opening crawl of The Force Awakens. He was also this in Return of the Jedi. But as we learned in The Force Awakens, that was not always the case.
Only a few years prior to that movie, his nephew Ben Solo aka Kylo Ren helped slaughtered his Jedi academy. This event pushed Luke into hiding where he was only recently discovered. Discovered at an ancient Jedi Temple. What was he doing there and just how long?
But now that Rey has found Luke, what does that mean? Logic would say that he is going to train her. Jedi is a word that is both singular and plural. Are Luke and Rey both the Last Jedi? Will the Jedi Order cease to exist altogether and become something new. We don’t know much about Snoke and Kylo but they are never referred to as Sith. Could Luke and Rey be following suit?
As the months continue we will certainly learn more about the plot. Until then there will be tons of speculation with every little tidbit of information. The Last Jedi will be released on December 15, 2017.
