First one sheet for Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives online

Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm have recently released their first one sheet for Rian Johnson's (Looper) Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

With little over 10 months until the film's release date, we still know surprisingly little about the latest film in the Skywalker saga, with no official material released from the highly anticipated production beyond a little video announcing the start of filming back in February last year.

And what can we infer from that title? The Last Jedi could refer to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), last seen in his island exile on the oceanic planet of Ahch-To. Or it could mean Daisy Ridley's Rey, seen to be Force sensitive in J.J. Abram's Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), and presumably about to undergo some hefty Jedi training under Luke's tutelage.

Of course Jedi could also be interpreted as plural. Are there more Jedi on the horizon? Either way, what does it mean for the future of the series if Rey or Luke truly are the last Jedi? Could Star Wars exist without the lightsaber wielding heroes? Should we read anything into the fact that the logo is red? We will have to wait to find out some of those answers, with Star War: The Last Jedi arriving in cinemas 15 December.
