Change the title for Star Wars: Episode VIII from The Last Jedi to Last of the Jedi
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
The release of the title for Star Wars: Episode VIII as "The Last Jedi" has broken from the tradition of naming conventions established by Episodes I-VII.
The first episodes of each trilogy have three words:
"The Phantom Menace"
"A New Hope"
"The Force Awakens"
Likewise, the second episodes of each trilogy are meant to have four words:
"Attack of the Clones"
"The Empire Strikes Back"
A major part of the Star Wars franchise is the movies mirroring each other visually, thematically, and semantically. Therefore, in order to maintain the naming tradition, we would like for Lucasfilm to change the title of Episode VIII to "Last of the Jedi", as it retains the same message as the old name while maintaining naming tradition.
We would also like to note that there is already a case of a Star Wars movie changing its title before its release. "Return of the Jedi" was originally marketed as "Revenge of the Jedi" before being re-titled. Thus, it is not without precedence for such a change to occur.
