Y’all, we finally have the name of episode eight…The Last Jedi.
I’ve come up with a few theories of what this could mean, so I thought I would share them with y’all!
- The most obvious answer is that Luke Skywalker dies, and is therefore the “last” Jedi
Although, would this mean that he did not end up training Rey? Because if she became a Jedi, then obviously Luke would not be the last Jedi. And I’m pretty sure that he ends up training her as his padawan – or at least, that was what episode seven seemed to hint at.
2. Episode 8 is centered around Luke Skywalker
Another option would be that this next movie is centered around Luke, hence the name, “The Last Jedi.” This could work, because right now Rey would only be a padawan and therefore, Luke would be the “last” Jedi – at least temporarily.
I think this could be an interesting move, and perhaps would give us more background info. With episode seven, Rey had several flashbacks and/or visions of the future; so it would be really cool if in episode eight, we got the same thing with Luke.
How did he get there? What happened before all of his padawans were killed? Was he ever married? So many questions and hopefully this next one will answer them.
3. Another Jedi
A lot of people have pointed out that the titles of episode 7 and 8 form a complete sentence: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi.
I’m still in denial that Jyn and Cassian died (THEYLIVEDOK), so when I saw the above on social media, my first thought was…hey, Jyn had a kyber crystal! Maybe she has the Force, but she just didn’t know it! And Cassian and her have been “asleep” ever since the events of Scarif, but then the Force AWAKENS Jyn.
Alright. I’ll admit it. This is extremely far-fetched and most likely won’t happen, but hey, that’s what fanfictions are for right? xD
Well, those are my theories for what episode eight could possibly be about! What do y’all think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
