Thoughts on ‘The Last Jedi’

Who is/ will be the last Jedi?

Its amazing how many freaken theories come up when A SIMPLE TITLE is released. Good lord! Already theories have abounded about who the last Jedi is or what the title may mean.

So lets dive in, shall we?

  1. Who is the Last Jedi?
    1. Rey – This is the most obvious choice. She’s likely to be trained by Luke and is going to carry on the Jedi mantle. It will be a surprise to nearly everyone if this is not the case, though Daisy Riddley’s comments on the matter have fans thinking that this may be ambiguous.
    2. Luke – Second most obvious… MOSTLY BECAUSE THE TITLE CRAWL DURING THE FORCE AWAKENS LITERALLY CALLS HIM THE LAST JEDI!!
    3. Kylo Ren – Perhaps he is the last Jedi? Killing his father may have taken it’s toll on him emotionally and this may in turn aid in his path back to the light. So in this case, what about Rey and Luke? There is a standing theory that Luke is actually no longer a Jedi and is in fact a new concept known as a Gray. This is a Jedi that recognizes the use of both sides and practices their abilities as such. This makes sense as we’ve seen Luke travel at least partially down the path of anger and hate.
    4. Supreme Leader Snoke: Ugh… not even getting into this one. It’s pretty insane.
  2. The Last Jedi could refer to more than one:
    1. This could refer to Luke and Rey.
    2. Perhaps the ‘Knights of Ren’ as it could be that they were a return to ancient Jedi ways.

Any thoughts? Other wild theories?

  1. As much of an avid Star Wars follower that I was, these last few have lost that “Lucas film” touch. It could have been Princess Lea and Luke as the Last Jedi, but Rey is obviously there to be trained by Luke.

  2. If it’s Kylo Ren that would be amazing! A deep storyline with a great twist.

    It’s definitely going to be interesting to see what direction they take this! 😀 Like you mentioned, there are so many theories out there surrounding this title already. I’m sure they knew what they were doing when they named this film since it has really gotten people talking. 🙂 Tough to pick just one direction I think they’re taking it. Anything could happen, but part of me thinks “The Last Jedi” is meant in the plural sense here. Can’t wait for the movie to come out so we can all find out for certain!

    I like that new kind of concept within the force with “Gray”. This can be related to the old republics Jedi diversity, which can be really good for Star Wars fandom and to give this trilogy a clear identity.

      Honestly the Grey idea isn’t so much a new concept as much as a new spin. We’ve seen such things before in Legends with Jedi who abandon the order, Jedi who soon label themselves dark jedi among other things. So it’s not exactly a brand new concept. Its more finally taking center stage now with people like Assajj Ventress and Ahsoka Tano.

    What if Rey turns to the Dark Side? Wouldn’t that make this a really interesting trilogy with two Siths after a long time? I don’t think it possible but it sounds interesting as Luke could be The Last Jedi.

  6. I hope Jedi is plural. But also, I hope it involves Luke somehow.

  7. Rey is looking like the most certain bet, considering Luke is already a Jedi..but then has he retired and is coming back to be the last Jedi?
