“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

“When gone am I, the last of the Jedi you will be”


Lucasfilm have revealed that “the next chapter of the Skywalker saga” is to be titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Notably, the font colour has been tinted red, which is reminiscent of the red logo designed for Star Wars: Revenge of the Jedi, later known as Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. One theory is that the red and black is a clue to the coming return of the character known as Darth Maul, who – as of Star Wars Rebels – is still alive. Or the red could symbolise a darker tone, such as Rey’s path to the Dark Side. Rey is probably not “the last Jedi”, due to @StarWars’ choice to refer to Star Wars: The Last Jedi as “the next chapter of the Skywalker saga”, as well as Luke Skywalker having been the reason for the events of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens leading-into Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Luke Skywalker will also be the protagonist, according to director Rian Johnson. After the Knights of Ren destroyed Luke’s newly-trained Jedi, Luke has become the last threat to the First Order, making Luke “the Last Jedi”, which is probably also the reason for his exile – the First Order was so intent on finding him, after all. Luke is definitely “the Last Jedi”, or one of them anyway; the title could be partially referring to both Luke and Rey. If Luke trains Rey to become a Jedi, Luke and Rey are both “the Last Jedi”, plural.

There are also rumours that Star Wars: Episode IX will be titled Legacy of the Force.

At least it’s not Star Wars: Forces of Destiny.

  1. The title seems to be a bit simplistic. Also, I’m wary of having the word “last” in the title when it’s not the last movie in the series. Still, in all, they could name the thing “Star Wars: Episode VIII: Mr. Magoo Makes A Left Turn Into The Star Wars Galaxy And Drives His Car Right Into The Millennium Falcon”, and it would make just as much money at the box office.

    1. Mark Hamill said that it’s inspired by “The Last Samurai”, even though I’m weary being released in the same year as “Transformers: The Last Knight”. Like how “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was only a year after “Transformers: Age of Extinction”.
