AceShowbiz - A new image of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" featuring Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker has made its way out through the cover of a Hungarian magazine called Cinemania Mozimania. The actor himself took to his official Twitter account to share a photo of the magazine's cover.
At first glance, there seems to be nothing unusual about the image, but eagle-eyed fans have noticed something ominous about it. Luke is wearing an all-black jedi outfit and his expression is somewhat mysterious and vacant, sparking speculations that Luke may turn to the dark side in the upcoming movie.
Luke was only featured briefly in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", when Rey (Daisy Ridley) found him and returned his lightsaber. He was living in exile after training his nephew Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), who then turned into the dark side.
Luke will have a bigger role in "The Last Jedi". "[Luke] made a huge mistake in thinking that his nephew was the chosen one, so he invested everything he had in Kylo, much like Obi-Wan did with my character, and he is betrayed, with tragic consequences," Hamill previously said.
"Luke feels responsible for that. That's the primary obstacle he has to rejoining the world and his place in the Jedi hierarchy, you know? It's that guilt, that feeling that it's his fault, that he didn't detect the darkness in him until it was too late," the actor added.
Speaking to Cinemania Mozimania about Carrie Fisher, he said, "She was irreplaceable. There can never be a proper reunion anymore. It's tragic." He continued, "I hate that it adds an air of melancholy to the film because it doesn't deserve it. I know for a fact she would obviously want us to be having fun. She was all about laughter and enjoying the moment. We're all sort of having this communal period of grief. In a way, it sort of reflects the movies themselves, which were about triumphs and tragedies. They are about a family - a dysfunctional family, but a family nonetheless."
"The Last Jedi" will also see the return of John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Andy Serkis as Snoke.
Rian Johnson wrote the script and serves as director. The movie is set to be released December 15 in the United States.
