We love Rian Johnson, and not just for movies like Brick and Looper, or because of the fact that he didn’t care that Mark Hamill didn’t like his take on Luke Skywalker when he read the script for The Last Jedi, but because he really doesn’t seem to give a sh*t about all of the internet jibber-jabber that inevitably pops up every time an iota of news about the sequel to The Force Awakens is released.
Obviously, the title of a movie is a little bit bigger of a deal than some obscure ship in the deep background of a space battle scene, but Johnson is done being coy about what the name of the movie means or who it refers to. He already said that it refers to just one person and now he’s ended the conversation by definitively stating exactly who the last Jedi is two words.
