Japanese Poster For ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Makes Ridiculously Bold Claim About The Film

by 5 months ago

A Japanese poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has fans speculating worldwide. Why? The poster, in Japanese (*which is important), has insinuated that this film will include the biggest/most shocking reveal in the history of Star Wars.

The two reveals that immediately come to mind are Vader as Luke’s father and Luke/Leia as brother and sister. There are COUNTLESS game-changing reveals throughout the Star Wars franchise, but if this poster is to be believed then the biggest reveal is yet to come.

According to Germain Lussier at io9, the language on this Japanese poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi reads as follows: “The Most Shocking Truth In Star Wars History Will Soon Be Revealed!”…Now, some of this is open to interpretation because a few of the Japanese words have multiple meanings. io9 employed the help of a Japanese interpreter, and you can see what they had to say below but first let’s check out the poster:


Here’s what io9‘s Japanese interpreter had to say:

Our interpreter says that’s close to accurate, but “shocking” may not exactly be right; it could also be “devastating, gut-wrenching, startling, sensational, astounding, or astonishing.” Additionally, the Japanese word for “truth” could also be interpreted as “reveal”—so changing that to “moment” or “secret” would make the most sense for English-speaking audiences.

The easy money here indicates that they reveal who Rey’s parents are. This, however, seems way too obvious. If this truly is the biggest/most shocking reveal in Star Wars history then they will need to BRING THE HEAT.

 

If you bros have any thoughts on what this could mean then GET LOUD in the comments down below!
