Is the title “The Last Jedi” singular or plural?
Despite what some translations may suggest, the title is singular.
During an interview with ABC News, director Rian Johnson said:
It's so funny when people started asking that, when the title was announced, because I never even pondered that question ... That seems like, to me, the most uninteresting ...
Though, the title itself is quite ambiguous, but we can go through the movie plot and conclude it.
Princess Leia is sensitive to the Force, but she is not a Jedi. She didn't get training as Jedi.
Kylo Ren was trained as Jedi, but he was seduced by the dark side of the Force, so he is not a Jedi.
Rey was just learning the ways of the Force, but wasn't ...

Though Rian Johnson has stated the title is singular (as per Charles' answer), for the record, here's a list of international translations of The Last Jedi, categorized by whether they are singular, plural or indeterminate (such as in English or languages which do not have a singular/plural distinction at all). ...
He got himself arrested so the police would stop bothering him.
Taken from p. 65 of The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary:
Already known to local authorities, DJ purposely arranges his own arrest for a petty crime. The jail is the only place he can grab some sleep with the assurance that he won't be pestered by the Canto Bight Police Department.
On a second viewing, I noticed we actually see the texts twice on the Falcon--the second is the obvious time, but we actually see a very brief glimpse of them right after the Falcon leaves Ahch-To, when Rey closes that drawer before getting in the escape pod to Snoke's ship and telling Chewie to rendezvous with her later. Hence, she knew about them/their ...
Wisdom they held, but that library contained nothing that the girl Rey does not already possess.
This is a double entendre by Yoda.
The figurative meaning is that Rey is already wise enough, perhaps due to her time on the island, that she does not need the books anymore. This meaning appears to be what Yoda intends because of the "but", and it makes Luke ...
He only planned on directing one. He took over when Collin Trevarrow was fired and presumably asked again.

J.J. Abrams couldn't resist returning for Episode IX, out in 2019. "I
had no intention to return," says Abrams, who directed 2015's The
Force Awakens. "But when the opportunity presented itself to finish ...
The title of the film is spoken twice in a conversation late in the movie.
Luke Skywalker: I failed you, Ben. I'm sorry.
Kylo Ren: I'm sure you are! The Resistance is dead, the war is over, and when I kill you, I will have killed the last Jedi!
Luke Skywalker: Amazing. Every word of what you just said was wrong. The Rebellion is reborn today. The war is ...
It's quite ambiguous, and fortunately so!
As shown by existing answers, director Rian Johnson seems to have a clear answer to the question, but that doesn't make the title of his movie less ambiguous, especially since many of the film's official translations deviate from his opinion (neither do we know who was ultimately responsible for the title anyway). ...
First, let's make 2 assumptions:
Hyperspace collisions have happened in the past. In general, people know the consequences, and they know it's very messy. ("Ain't like dusting crops, boy!")
The rebel military leaders aren't stupid. Admiral Akbar, General Organa, and Vice-Admiral Hondo fully understand what a "Hyperspace Kamikaze" attack would accomplish, ...
Luke Skywalker is referred to as "the last jedi" by the opening crawl of Episode VII: The Force Awakens:
Luke Skywalker has vanished. In his absence, the sinister FIRST ORDER has risen from the ashes of the Empire and will not rest until Skywalker, the last Jedi,
has been destroyed.
The text of the Episode VII opening crawl can be found on this wiki ...
Leia used the force, brought out by her survival instinct.
Survival in space is something that seems within the grasp of Jedi to do, as is evidenced by Plo Koon in The Clone Wars
I can withstand the pressure for some time
While it's unclear whether or not this is a skill specific to the Jedi, it seems to be with their grasp....
Kylo Ren is a very strong force user. Luke says something to the effect to Rey:
I wasn't frightened enough when I came across such power the first time
We also see him perform other 'tricks' that have never been seen in Star Wars before, like stopping a blaster bolt in mid air for more than a minute.
However I don't think we've seen what the powers of ...
No, You're not crazy!! There is a Brazil reference in The Last Jedi, according to Vulture:
The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson has picked up the baton and
drawn on an array of respected cinematic works for inspiration. As was
noted by Slate’s Sam Adams, Johnson’s franchise picture owes debts to
Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch, Michael Powell ...
Because Poe Dameron told Finn and Rose over the comms while DJ was in the room, and he overheard. At this point, they thought he was on their side, or at least the thought of him betraying them hadn't crossed their mind, so they didn't think to not let him know about that information.
Luke Skywalker has vanished. In his absence, the sinister FIRST ORDER
has risen from the ashes of the Empire and will not rest until
Skywalker, the last Jedi, has been destroyed.
Although BEFORE the film was released Rian Johnson insisted it was singular and specifically pertained to Luke, which is also stated in The Force Awakens opening crawl, and in ...
The line is a bit two fold:
"The Aionomica, the Rammahgon, a dozen other mystic-sounding made-up names—the foundation of the ancient faith." ―Luke Skywalker
It's referring to the fact that the 8 books Rey takes from the tree library are extremely knowledgeable books in terms of Force knowledge, including information on "Chain World Theorem" (The World ...
This article from Den of Geek has some interesting theories.
Essentially, it says that the mirror scene for Rey served the same purpose that the cave-battle with Vader served for Luke (at Dagobah).
My interpretation: to become a true Jedi, it's necessary to understand that the dark side isn't an external enemy. Rather, it's a part of yourself that you must ...
Yoda: Wisdom they held, but that library contained nothing that the girl Rey does not already possess.
This line by Yoda is a hint that Rey has already taken the Ancient Texts from the temple before it burnt down. We see them aboard the Falcon at the end of the film when Finn is looking through some drawers.
And of course we see Rey has them in her hideout ...
Yes, he is sensitive to the Force.
It might indicate that a whole new generation of Jedi is out there. Among those three young children you saw talking, that boy was telling the legend of Luke Skywalker. After being told by that alien, he goes outside and moves the broom near to wall via the Force.
From Archieve.org Cache of this page [Warning: this ...
This was explained in the official tie-in book "Star Wars The Last Jedi The Visual Dictionary"
The boy who uses the Force to control the broom is Temiri Blagg. The girl is Arashell Sar and the other boy is Oniho Zaya.
The Last Jedi The Visual Dictionary describes these stable hands as "children abandoned on Cantonica by losing gamblers" who "engage in ...
Why didn't Admiral Holdo just reveal the escape plan to Poe?
This happens for four major reasons:
Admiral Holdo doesn't trust Poe, given his recent dreadnaught plan.
Upon meeting Holdo, Poe disagrees with her plan without even knowing it.
Vice Admiral Holdo is Poe's ranking officer and doesn't have to answer to him.
According to Leia, Holdo didn't want ...
Director Rian Johnson tweeted:
It’s in there!
and in an interview with the Huffpost he confirmed that
the line came from BB-8′s anxious beeps when the droid and Poe Dameron
(Oscar Isaac) are flying into battle against the First Order near the
start of the movie
“It seemed like a fun character to deliver that line. I think originally I had ...
There is a second door (which must have closed first), the camera angle just doesn't show it.
(speculation unfortunately, I don't think there's a confirmed answer)
These screenshots show the door before and after Leia enters the airlock. You can see that there's even a lighted button on the inside for closing the door.
I think it's safe to assume that ...
The color combination white and red looks kind of Pluto. Any canon or interview on this will highly be appreciated.
The red and white colors are meant to symbolize the progression of battle, and how violent it can be.
From an interview with Ryan Johnson, in response to the red-and-white motif that's ever present in The Last Jedi:
The idea for Crait, very ...
Short answer: We don't know
Long answer: That scene was more of tribute to Carrie Fisher's joke about her wishful death. From vanityfair:
The image can’t help but recall the late Fisher’s famous wish for her obituary, from her one-woman show Wishful Drinking. Recalling how Star Wars director George Lucas requested she go bra-less in the original trilogy, ...
Luke didn't give it to him, Lor San Tekka found it.
Speaking to Lor San Tekka at the beginning of The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren says:
The map to Skywalker. We know you found it. And now you're going to
give it to the First Order.
Later, Kylo Ren is interrogating Rey, and says:
[ The droid's ] carrying a section of a navigational chart. And we
The legend of "The First Jedi Temple" was probably known to all (trained) Jedi, but at that point, Luke was the only Jedi left.
And even Luke didn't know where it was exactly.
Han says this in Episode VII: The Force Awakens:
People that knew him best think he went looking for the First Jedi Temple.
The "went looking" part implies that Luke had an idea ...
This is not the same planet as in Empire Strikes Back.
The planet in Star Wars: The Last Jedi is called Crait, but the planet shown in Episode V is called Hoth.
Though, both are different ones. Since the planet Crait is called old base of Rebel Alliance in the movie and Hoth was abandoned after the encounter between rebels and Darth Vader, I can understand ...
It wasn't explained in the film but from the context we have a couple options:
Snoke is lying. He trying to make Rey feel like she has no control, that her seemingly emotional connection with Kylo was all a farce, and she is destined to turn to the dark side. This would fit well the deceitful nature of the dark side, and plus Snoke has no real incentive to ...
