Mark Hamill may have shared top billing in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he didn’t have much in the way of screen time as Luke Skywalker. That’s gonna change in Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is now only a mere 13.5 months away! As usual, Lucasfilm has kept a pretty tight lid on the latest batch of Star Wars secrets. Many Bothans died to bring you these rumors, and today’s Nerdist News has the scoop on what Luke Skywalker will be wearing when he makes his big comeback!
There are potential spoilers ahead, so if you want to know absolutely nothing about the next Star Wars movie, this would be a good time to stop reading this post! The latest report comes from Making Star Wars, a usually reliable rumor site. This time, the MS team has provided fans with a very detailed description of Luke Skywalker’s newest costume.
Join Nerdist News host, and distant Skywalker relation, Jessica Chobot, as she breaks down what it all means for the galaxy’s last Jedi Master. If you were worried that Luke was gonna spend the whole movie in those old style Jedi robes, then you can relax. It looks like Luke’s costume will be relatively unassuming for a Jedi. More intriguingly, Luke appears to be carrying a staff instead of his trusty green lightsaber. Has our hero renounced the traditional weapon of the Jedi? Or is Luke about to pull off the old “lightsaber hidden in a cane” bit?
