With fans seemingly unable to wait until December to know the plot of the eighth installment of Star Wars, this latest Last Jedi bombshell has many fans wondering if, indeed, the entire plot has been revealed!

According to Mashable, the tweet above is the one that reportedly drops the Last Jedi bombshell. It was written on the Star Wars Italia Twitter, and the words when translated read “the last of the Jedi, in the movies this December.”
But what’s most interesting, at least to native Italian speakers, is that this Tweet confirmed that the word “Jedi” is, indeed, plural. This has many fans speculating that both Rey and Luke Skywalker will be the focus of the film, and this is something that up until now has only been speculated on.
Furthermore, according to Mashable, the Star Wars Italia Twitter wasn’t the only foreign language Twitter that confirmed that The Last Jedi referred to more than one Jedi. The Star Wars France Twitter, which is a verified account, also noted that “Jedi” is plural.

Meanwhile, according to Entertainment Weekly, another Last Jedi bombshell has been dropped in the form of the trailer!
The internet has been dying to get their hands on the first trailer for the upcoming film, and fans have speculated that everyone could see it anytime from Super Bowl Sunday to the premiere of Fifty Shades Darker.
Now, however, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that not only will fans get their first glimpse at the Last Jedi trailer very soon, it will be during the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida!
Best of all, fans who are attending the annual Celebration can take comfort in knowing that the trailer debut will happen in a “prime slot.”
“Lucasfilm announced Wednesday that studio chief Kathleen Kennedy and The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson will appear on stage at the event on Friday, April 14, accompanied by “plenty of surprises and special guests. As of now, that’s all we know — but the Celebration gatherings have previously led to major footage reveals for the new wave of Star Wars films. The Force Awakens dropped its ‘Chewie, we’re home’ trailer at the Anaheim, California fan convention in 2015, and last year in London, a behind-the-scenes reel for Rogue One was showcased — along with still images from the making of Episode VIII.”

Finally, if there’s one cast member who delights in keeping what she knows about Star Wars: The Last Jedi to herself, it’s Lupita Nyong’o, who plays Maz Kanata.
Digital Spy recently sat down with the Oscar-winning actress, and she said that she not only likes keeping secrets about the movie from her fans, but she actually gets a little sad when new information about the film is released.
“”I love the fact that I don’t have to talk about Star Wars. I feel like I have a secret that everybody else wants to know about. That’s powerful. I love it. I feel a little sad every time more information is revealed.”
Speaking of Last Jedi bombshell reveals, the outlet also recently featured Daisy Ridley’s new hairstyle as Rey. Instead of keeping her hair tied up as she did throughout The Force Awakens, Ridley is now shown with her hair down.
