It’s one of the great questions of our time: is ‘The Last Jedi’ in Star Wars: The Last Jedi singular or plural? It turns out, the answer has (kinda) just been revealed, thanks to the official Star Wars Twitter accounts from other countries, naturally. Get your polyglot hats on, because we’re going digging for Star Wars answers in a whole bunch of languages…
The Spanish Star Wars account seems nice and definitive: it’s 'Los Ultimos Jedi'. For those of you who don’t know your Sevilles from your siestas, that’s the plural version of Jedi. So far, so straightforward.
Spain’s next-door neighbours France are in agreement: 'Les Derniers Jedi' is, again, plural. I’m sensing a theme here…
It’s specifically masculine plural so, while Rey is still likely to be part of the Jedi, ‘Les’ only needs one man in the group to make it masculine. That’s probably Luke but, hey, don’t discount more male (and female) Jedi rocking up - or Kylo Ren turning his back on the Dark Side.
The Italians are on the same page too. Their logo states 'Gli Ultimi Jedi'. That’s another notch for the plural side.
We’ve gone through nearly every high school language class, so what about the Germans? Helpfully, they’ve stuck with plural for The Last Jedi.
So the final answer is… plural! It’s still up in the air who the Jedi in the title are (the gendering of foreign languages isn’t much help there) but at least we know there’s more than one Jedi out there...
