    Could be, but I wonder how dark Disney is really looking to go here.

    On one hand, the expectation is that this installment will be the "new Empire" in tone, but on the other there might be an adjustment based on what the younger part of the fanbase can endure. In TFA, kids see a few planets get wiped-out and Han Solo die (oh, the wailing in the theater :lol:); Rogue One was an abattoir; this one, it seems more likely that she bows-out here than getting Uncanny Valley Leia in IX. Are they going to kill-off Luke, too? Or have Rey go to the dark side? They can't bum the kids out too much- there are toys to sell!

    It seems like the official German title will be "Die letzten Jedi", which is plural.

    My spanish is far from perfect, but I'm 99% sure "los ultimos" is not singular. Neither is the portuguese version. It's a bit dissapointing though because English is the only language I know where you can get away with "the last Jedi" without telling the audience if it's one or many, and if it's only one, if that one is male or female. Maybe they should have just kept the English title and leave everyone in the dark.

    my bet is that they have luke form the jedi temple again, just like in the extended universe. There's so much material in the extend universe that they'll probably cherry pick other good storylines from it as well.

    oh snap!

    yeah "los Ultimos" is plural. But when I google up the movie title it came up in "El Ultimo Jedi".... meaning a singular format

    maybe I google it wrong or something..... upsss my bad :wavey:

    I thought someone came out and confirmed that Jedi was plural in reference to the title?

    Well, at least this is one teaser that earns the name. I didn't get at all why the Thor 3 thing was labelled a "teaser," or the War for the Planet of the Apes, given both of them showed a ton of footage and seemed like regular trailers to me!

    So yeah, basically, what little there was looked cool! The best possible trailer would be one that says "TREVORROW WAS FIRED OFF THE NEXT MOVIE!!" though. :shred:

    Luke needs to lose the "let's all give up and go home" attitude. :nono:

    Who said give up and to home? Hes saying that there is more to the Force than the dark and the light; which if you recall is the same thing Palpatine suggested.

    I was kidding. :lol: Sort of...

    I recall things not turning out so well for the people that listened to Palpatine's suggestions, especially the Jedi.

    The only truth I know is BB-8 will be in there kickin' a$$ like always and Disney pushed frisson ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frisson ) to new levels. :cool:
