We all could have saved all our speculation by just asking the director who the title referred to.

So much for the speculation and the secrecy surrounding the title of the next Star Wars movie. When The New York Times asked director Rian Johnson why December’s installment in the series is called The Last Jedi, he just straight-up explained who the title referred to, and pointed out that we’ve known all along.

“It’s in the opening crawl of The Force Awakens,” he explained. “Luke Skywalker, right now, is the last Jedi. There’s always wiggle room in these movies — everything is from a certain point of view — but coming into our story, he is the actual last of the Jedi. And he’s removed himself and is alone on this island, for reasons unknown.”
