Adding to the revelation he made on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that The Last Jedi's first word will be "We're", Johnson told Fox 5's Entertainment reporter Kevin McCarthy over the weekend that the film's second word will be "not".

Meaning the first two words of The Last Jedi will be: "We're not."

So, what does "we're not" mean in context of The Last Jedi and perhaps more importantly, who says it?

Well, the latter may be easier to speculate about.

Given we already know The Last Jedi will pick up exactly where The Force Awakens ended, it's likely "we're not" will be said by either Rey (Daisy Ridley) or Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

If this is indeed the case, we're not digging the super negative connotations of the two-word phrase; although it does make sense, given we already know Rey isn't impressed by Luke when they first meet.

But would would they say? We're not... "...related"? "...Friends"? "...Done (with training)"? "...On Jakku anymore"? There are so many possibilities to explore in the two weeks before the film premieres.

And that's not to mention that fact that Rey and Luke's opening interaction could be wordless, meaning the movie's first words could be uttered by someone else entirely.

Tbh, we're not sure this word-by-word reveal is working for us Rian. Too many options.

Still, not long until we find out who says what and where and when now, as Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in cinemas on 14 December in the UK, and 15 December in the US.
