Since the announcement that the title of "Star Wars: Episode VIII" would be "The Last Jedi," fans have been debating whether the word "Jedi" is singular or plural. Did it refer to Luke? Rey? Or both? Maybe others?
The release of the international titles for the movie now seemingly confirm that the word is indeed plural:

Because of how the Germans use grammar, we now know that "Jedi" is plural in "The Last Jedi". Vielen Dank. pic.twitter.com/QupIQb4K8X

The French title for the next Star Wars movie ("The Last Jedi") in English is "Les derniers Jedi" -- so plural. https://t.co/wcbztCMXgc

The plural usage indicates that Luke is not the last Jedi, as mentioned in the opening crawl of "The Force Awakens," and that Rey will receive training from him in the Force. It also points to the possibility that Kylo Ren, would turn away from the Dark Side and rejoin his uncle in the Jedi ways. Perhaps there are even others yet undiscovered, like Finn, who seemed somewhat Force-sensitive.
"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" opens in theaters December 15, 2017.
