Star Wars: The Last Jedi: New Image Of Luke’s Dark Look

There’s still no sign of a new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so we have to find fresh looks of the movie where we can. The latest comes via Hungarian film magazine Cinemania Mozimánia, a new image of Luke Skywalker as tweeted by the man who plays him, Mark Hamill.

Luke, of course, has been in hiding since his attempt to train new Jedi came a cropper and led to tragedy. But with Daisy Ridley’s Rey finally tracking him down at the end of The Force Awakens, Luke is reluctantly drawn back into the clash between good and evil.

And Hamill recently talked to The Associated Press about his character’s mindset, which might explain the darker choice of robes. “Luke changed, I think, more than the other characters in the original trilogy, from callow farm boy to a Jedi in training to finally a Jedi master. What you’re talking about is what really fascinated me. Between Return Of The Jedi and Force Awakens, there’s just decades of history that’s unknown,” he says.

“So I was wondering how they’re going to handle all this. Now, obviously, with Force Awakens, J.J. (Abrams) had a full plate. It was inevitable that they would push me down the line. I was sorry I wasn’t able to work with any of the original actors again. But it’s not about us anymore. In this new one, I was saying to (Last Jedi director) Rian Johnson: ‘I need to know my backstory.” It was kind of unclear. You read where he is now and what he’s doing now and sort of have to fill in the blanks for yourself. So I did do a backstory myself. It’s not about Luke anymore, so it’s not really important. But I had to make sense of it for myself. What Rian came up with, I was stunned.”

How much of that will be revealed to the rest of us remains to be seen, but Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in UK cinemas on 15 December.
