Finally! The next Star Wars film, Episode 8, which is scheduled to be released in December, finally has a name! The Last Jedi! There we go, we have a name and the new banner for the movie with the evil looking red lettering.
So what does it mean? Well, let’s try to dig into a banner as much as possible. The term Jedi is both plural and singular, so it could mean there is one last Jedi or there is a group, making them the last of the Jedi. All we have right now is Luke and Rey (maybe Finn). We know Luke taught the new Jedi academy before Kylo killed everyone, so maybe there are some survivors out there, or it may just be Luke and Rey. A lot of folks are speculating this means Luke could be killed in this movie, leaving Rey as the last Jedi, but as my good friend Jon pointed out, the Star Wars movies probably planned to take away the old characters throughout the new episodes, starting with Han in the first (spoiler). Now with Carrie Fisher gone (RIP), they could push Luke’s fate to the next film. They will have to find a way to take away Princess Leia’s character in the film so I doubt they would get rid of two of the original characters.
Outside of this, we have nothing but guess work and pure fandom for the upcoming movie. I mean, we probably won’t get the first trailer until May so until then, this is the best we have.
