Rian Johnson: Meaning Of ‘The Last Jedi’ Title Evolves Throughout The Film

During an interview segment conducted with Good Morning America at D23 Expo, Episode VIII director Rian Johnson circles back to the earlier talking-point about the meaning of the The Last Jedi title. Is it singular or plural in nature? Does it apply specifically to Rey or Luke? Or possibly someone else entirely?

Johnson doesn’t divulge any concrete details in the interview, however he does reveal that the meaning of the title will develop over the course of the film.

He also talks about filming the final scenes with Carrie Fisher as General Leia and how her portrayal in The Last Jedi will hopefully bring a satisfying emotional conclusion to her iconic character.
