Following on the heels of revealing Rey’s new hair on an empty box, another Star Wars: Episode VIII mystery has been answered — namely, whether The Last Jedi refers to a single Jedi or a group of Jedi, since both the singular and the plural form are “Jedi”. The solution comes to us via the release of several foreign-language titles for the film.
The French title for the movie has been revealed as “Les Derniers Jedi“, which, in case you don’t speak French, absolutely means “The Last Jedi (plural)”.

The same is true for the title in Spanish:

Thank you, other languages who modify their adjectives to distinguish the quantity (and gender) of the nouns they’re modifying!
So it looks like we can, finally, put to rest this nagging question about whether it’s about Luke Skywalker, alone on penitent Jedi island, or about Rey and Luke, together. It’s more than one last Jedi. It’s the Jedi as a whole, not just Luke Skywalker and his sadness beard.
