Disney revealed today that “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is the title of Episode VIII in the Star Wars saga.
This, naturally, prompted many fans to ask: Of whom is the title speaking?
Is it Luke, who certainly seemed to be the last Jedi standing after “Return of the Jedi?” Last we saw him, a bearded Luke was hanging out on an island all by himself, recently tracked down by Rey. But wasn’t he training new Jedi when he went into exile?
Is it Rey, who is clearly Force-sensitive? Rey’s parentage has been the subject of fan debate since “The Force Awakens” came out in 2015. Is she Luke’s daughter? Is she Han and Leia’s? Or is neither true?
Is it Kylo Ren, the artist formerly known as Ben Solo? He was last seen reppin’ hard for the First Order and murdering his father. He certainly seems Jedi-like but is more of a Sith fellow, what with his allegiance to the Knights of Ren and all.
Whom do YOU think is the last Jedi?
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is written and directed by Rian Johnson and is scheduled for release December 15, 2017.
