Argh! You beat me to it... >:|

Seems like that should have been the title for Ep 9

Well, we have no idea of the context yet- personally after Carrie Fisher's passing I doubt immensely that it refers to the death of Luke Skywalker.

What a boring title

"No one is immune from failure. All have tasted the bitterness of defeat and disappointment. A warrior must not dwell on that failure, but must learn from it and continue on. But not all learn from their errors. That is something those who seek to dominate others know very well, and know how to exploit. If an opponent has failed once at a logic problem, his enemy will first try the same type of problem, hoping the failure will be repeated. What the manipulator sometimes forgets, and what a warrior must always remember, is that no two sets of circumstances are alike. One challenge is not like another. The would-be victim may have learned from the earlier mistake. crossing of life paths". - Thrawn

 

"All strive for victory. But not all understand what it truly is. To a soldier or pilot on the line, victory is surviving the current battle. To a politician, victory is an advantage one can bring to a bargaining table. To a warrior, victory is driving an enemy from the field of battle, or bringing him to surrender. Sometimes the victory is greater than the warrior could ever hope for. Sometimes it is more than he is able to bear". - Thrawn

Jedi is both singular and plural. So it probably refers to Rey and Luke. I would go so far and speculate that Rey and Luke are maybe searching for other force user (Like Maz Kanata) that they can recruit.


I miss the old Revan,

The amnesia Revan, switching them sides Revan

I hate the new Revan, the Legends Revan

SWTOR Revan, beefin with everyone Revan

I miss the cool Revan, "Heart of the Force" Revan

See I invented Revan, It wasn't any Revans

And now I look and look around and see Darth Maul is Revan

I used to love Revan, I used to love Revan

I even had that Red Mask, I thought I was Revan

What if Revan turned out to be Revan

And he relises he was Revan ? Man, that'd be so Revan

That's all it was Revan, we still love Revan

And I love you like Revan loves Revan

Dont know how saying the title is boring makes me a pessimist. All im saying is its not very creative and now we know that this movie will probably focus on Luke Skywalker more than other characters. Don't know what you mean by K2 though?

Really? What a lack of creativity, Johnson! This title is not boring not because it's simple. "The Sith Lords" is not boring. It perfectly matches the theme. "The Last Jedi" is boring because it was already used multiple times.

IT LACKS CREATIVITY much like The force awakens. Dont be surprised if 'The Last Jedi' probably rips off another big movie in Star Wars or maybe a game ;) this time

It could be incredibly central to the theme. So what if it was used before if this is the case?

 

& I'd actually argue K2's title is ill fitting.

Really? Are they serious?

 

I'm disappointed, and not only with the lack of creativity

 

At least they could bring themselves to put at least four words in the title, but not even that?

 

Even a title like "The First Order strikes Back" would be more exciting.

I kind of have to agree. The Force Awakens was fine, it didn't have to be like a super interesting title.

 

Guess my expectations for an engaging sequel title were misplaced.

TFA was ripped because A New Hope shaped a generation and we already saw that The Phantom Menace wasn't a generation shaper and it was a completely new script. The Force Awakens was intended to fascinate a new generation with Star Wars, so they've gone the safe way, disappointing the true fans. Rogue One was a movie for true fans. Considering the fact that The Force Awakens wasn't really long ago, The Last Jedi is a film for those already attracted, it's quite unlikely that they'll go the safe way again, because they'll disappoint both new and old fans.

But the title disappointed me anyway.

I believe Luke Skywalker will be the last Jedi, Rey will be something... more.

He's a part of the old religion which makes him the last of his kind in a way, Kylo Ren is starting something new along with Snook, which is different from being a Sith because of Kylos affiliation with the light side as well as the dark. In Star wars Episode VI: Return of the jedi Luke was the jedi that "Returned".

Heh, at one point I actually thought that Episode III was called "The Last of the Jedi," probably because it would have corresponded brilliantly with "Return of the Jedi" in Episode VI. Speaking of which, it's kinda depressing to have "The Last Jedi" be just two episodes after that title...

 

As for the title itself - meh, another title that I don't like the sound of from the new trilogy, but I'm not exactly surprised. I get more and more cynical of it as the months go by...


I don't remember why I came here.

Depends on what happens in the story, but my thoughts were:

 

 

7: The Force Awakens

8: Echoes of the Dark Side/Echoes of The Force

9: The Last Jedi

I think it's kinda funny how the host of a small YouTube channel called ToyGalaxy almost predicted the title of Episode 8 when he made a joke about it being called "Epsiode 8: Death of the first of the last of the Jedi" (Link:https://youtu.be/DDR6NQrJpDQ?t=1m13s)

 

I personally think it's a bit bland but the titles of Star Wars were always a bit.... expressive about whats going to happen in the movie. Who would have thought that in "The Empire Strikes Back" the Empire really strikes back ? I won't get all upset about and think the movie is gonna suck just because of the name.
