After international posters for Star Wars: The Last Jedi carried translations of the title that implied there were multiple titular "Last Jedi," director Rian Johnson now says he had a different intent with the title.

"It's so funny when people started asking that, because I had never pondered that question," Johnson explained when asked to clarify by Good Morning America. "It seems to me like the most...uninteresting question."

"Look, in my mind, it's singular," he continued, refusing to confirm or deny whether the title referred to Luke Skywalker, who, in the trailer for the film, said he believes it is time for the Jedi to come to an end. "They say in The Force Awakens, they're going to find the last Jedi temple, and Luke is the last Jedi."

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is due out in theaters December 15.
