Exclusive: First Look at Luke Skywalker from The Force Awakens!

Teaser Trailer

If you were wondering how Luke Skywalker will look in The Force Awakens, we have the answer. (“Chewie… punch it!”)

 

 

 

IMAGE REMOVED BY REQUEST

 

 

 

Note the light color scheme. Now granted, it may be a bit of a visual red herring (there was much talk during pre-production of ROTS about giving Grievous a white cape, to reflect the use of the color white to symbolize death in certain cultures) but perhaps this lays to rest rumors about Luke having lost his way or turned outright evil. It certainly brings to mind the light-side Jedi garb from the old Knights of the Old Republic video game.

 

However, it also doesn’t resemble the costume worn by whomever is seen putting his or her cybernetic hand on Artoo in the second teaser, so… speculate away, friends!

        You are aware that Jesus and Moses were both real people…right? Whether or not you believe the stories, they were living, breathing people.

          I have strong evidence that Spiderman is a real person too… it says so in comic books!

          You Jesus and Moses believers cannot dig up a scrap of evidence that historically links these two people as real, and I’m not talking about documents made years after both individuals had died.

          I’m not wading into the historicity of figures in the Tanakh, but religious Jews most definitely believe that Moses was a real, living, breathing person. I’m a cultural Jew, and I know very well what religious Jews believe. You’re spouting terrible misinformation about Jewish people, friend.

        • Reality Check

          Doesnt take much brain power to do some research into if Christ or Moses existed.

          http://www.patheos.com/blogs/christiancrier/2014/08/14/is-there-evidence-jesus-was-a-real-person/

          The intolerance of the non-religious kids here is sad. But we live in such times that if you don’t think like them and their narrow world view…you’re an outcast.

          So be it. I’d rather be an outcast with millions of others..laughing at the fact that when you face death, you fools will be searching for a God, Deity, Flying cat in the sky…and maybe one will answer. Then again, maybe not.

          You don’t know anything, and neither do the believers. That’s where faith and hope come into play. Atheists put their faith and hope into only what they can see and touch. Religious folks tend to be more philosophical about life and the meaning behind it.

          In other words, atheists are boring as shit.

            Most atheists I know, including myself, think just about anything is possible. So, while some are wasting their time with one potential meaning to the universe that was conceived thousands of years ago, many atheists are discussing unlimited potential theories, which certainly isn’t boring.

            Ultimately, the difference is, without proof, I wouldn’t dedicate my whole life to one belief system, and then try to institute public policy based on it. THAT is boring.

        • Ree Yees

          Moses is definitely a fictional character, do some research (and no, research done by theologians does not count). Jesus is doubtful, but not conclusively disproved.
          Your claim is akin to claiming Gandalf was a living, breathing person.

        • Anonymous

          This isn’t actually true, history makes no reference to Jesus ever existing outside of the bible. It doesn’t mean he didn’t exist, just means we cant be certain he did. That is all.

          • Dude in a hat

            Not true, the Romans remembered and mentioned him in contemporary record –
            Read:
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tacitus_on_Christ#The_passage_and_its_context

            call him what you will, Joshua [or as the romans would say, Jesus] of Nazerath was a real dude.

            And here’s an Athiest’s view after exhaustive studies on the Shroud of Turin
            https://www.reddit.com/r/DebateAnAtheist/comments/1w3mff/an_atheist_defends_the_shroud_of_turin/

            • aras volodka

              LOL the shrowd of turin is not real. It’s a confirmed “forgery”.

              Jesus the man was real, but he was by roman accounts completely insane. Several of his followers made appearances in Roman courts & they were not right in the head either. Picture a friendly version of Charles manson/ hanging out with hippy friends doing whatever narcotics were available to them at the time.

              Moses was definitely a mythological character, he never existed. There is no proof of his existence seeing as to how everything said about him was by word, writing didn’t exist in the middle east in the era he would have lived.

            • Anonymous

              Hey dude in a hat. The New Testament says that Jesus had a body cloth and a separate face cloth. By simple deduction of logic , if the Gospels are true then the Shroud is false. Since the shroud of turin is one cloth that covered the whole face and body. I am a Christian and I really couldn’t care less about the shroud of turin.

              There is enough historical evidence surrounding Jesus that you would have to deny all of written history since before you’re own birth in order to be consistent with a view that Jesus never existed.

          • C

            You should read Josephus, the first century Roman-Jewish scholar…

          • Anonymous

            Actually, there are many historical records that document Jesus and Moses as real people. Not just theologians but documentarians (people who record events and people for historical purposes) the only records we have of our founding fathers is from books and movies as well. So you are arguing that Jesus and Moses are fictional based on the same records keeping practices as all historical figures, therefore no one exsisted before you were born because you didnt actually see them.

          • Anonymous

            Read Josephus, he most certainly wasn’t a pro-Christian either.

        • Deano

          Well, it is likely Jesus was a series of stories from lots of different people, the Bible has lots of hidden meaning and is used as a tool to brainwash people, including every other religion, it’s likely the events in historic books are based on extra-terrestrials visiting and controlling the planet, good and bad, research the Archons for more info.

        Well, your assumption that Jesus and Moses are fictional characters is just your opinion.

        • Anonymous

          and your assumption that Jesus and Moses are real is your own opinion, the bible is not something you can use to base evidence off of, what fact does it supply other than it was interpreted from a different religion’s book and changed in many times and miss translated, but besides that it is a book, why do you believe the words of a man 2,000 years ago but not that of a man today who has science and rational thinking to explain thunder instead of stories passed down by just as miss-informed people before them.

        The intolerance here is disappointing. Do you really need to make a snarky remark every time someone posts something slightly religious? It seems to me like you feel you have an obligation to bash religion every chance you get.
        I am not trying to lecture you about how wrong Athiesm is, obviously. I am asking you to show some tolerance towards a comment that meant no harm to you in any way- a comment that rightfully should be “liked”, or simply scrolled past.
        It is intensely sad that I am posting this comment on a Star Wars news site. Actually, I can sort of relate to your need to mock religion; I have a need to defend it. It is merely human nature to be assured that we are correct in our worldview, and we will take unnecessary measures to comfort ourselves. I hope that in the future I can fight the need to make comments like this. I just really want you to reconsider what you are doing.

            Woah! What’s up with the religious hate?? Never expected it from open-minded Star Wars fans, a film dripping with the spiritual. I know there is a God and the spiritual is very real. All I can ask is that you keep an open mind. This is one of the reasons I love Star Wars. I feel it speaks to us all on a spiritual level. There’s more to us then this crude matter.

      • Ynnek

        Ok, first off, no one knows how Jesus or Moses looked, secondly, we do know they were real. The Bible is an eyewitness account of it, historically we also know Jesus existed and died. Early Christians beleived that Jesus rose from the dead and even risked their lives because of it, and these are the people who witnessed his death. Ultimatly both Luke and Jesus are cool, but only one anwsers the ultimate questions such as the problem of Good and Evil as well as if can I be forgiven. Just my two cents!

        • Tim

          Actually, no I witnesses wrote down what they saw. The very first written account of Jesus came from a Jewish historian. The second was from Saul, and Jewish man who persecuted and murdered maybe thousands of Christians, who would later become the Apostle Paul, the man single handily charged with distorting Jesus’ real message. Paul never met Jesus, and those who knew him, tried to have Paul killed. Jesus own brother hated Paul. This is in the Bible.

          However, after Paul, no Gospel was written until at least 40 years after Jesus died by men who had never met Jesus. All the original scriptures that differ were destroyed.

          And of those who wrote Gospels, one was written 200 years after Jesus died. All the Gospel don’t even agree on who Jesus was. If not for Paul and the author of Gospel of John, Jesus would be a much different character today.

          Also, whoever said not from theologians, that was silly. Scholars and some theologians are the ones who have unveiled the real Jesus.

        The Jewish historian Josephus mentions Jesus on multiple occasion. What Jesus wasn’t was a savior of the world. He was one of hundreds of Jewish revolutionaries who claimed to be the Jewish Messiah. The Messiah was never to destroy sin, he was to take the Jewish homeland back by force. With a sword. If you are gonna say things about history, at least know what you are talking about.

      The thing is that Jesus looked totally different than most modern people believe. Widespread image of Jesus is influenced by medieval art, not by how he really looked like (seriously, being long-haired blonde guy with white skin was almost impossible for a Jew in first century CE ;) ).

    • Vinnye930

      I’m an athiest. I don’t believe biblical testimony or theologians prove that Jesus was a real person. But here’s the thing, who cares? This is a star wars site lol if you’re a Christian and you subscribe to the bible than that’s fine. If you don’t believe than that’s fine also. At the end of the day as long as someone’s religious beliefs don’t cause harm to others than there’s no need to attack them. We can argue for days about whether or not Jesus was real but at the end of the day none of us definitively know, and we’re all just going to have our opinions. So really this argument is fruitless. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and if everyone could just accept that the world would be a better place. Now as far as the picture goes unfortunately it seems to have been removed before I could see it. But I’m guessing frome the descriptions in the comments that it seems to be flowing white robes? That’s interesting to me because based on what we had heard I pictured Luke to be in more tattered clothes considering that he’s supposedly living as a hermit. But I can understand the choice in a symbolic sense with Luke being the last remaining jedi wanting to give him that appearance

          I remember hearing last December that this year Disney would purposely start leaking false information about the film. This would easily keep the fans buzzing and the hype going and think they have it all figured out but we get a surprise in the theater. I honestly don’t know what to think about these spoilers because up until now we had never heard about the Knights of Ren. So I think everyone has this all completely wrong.

        Luke can only have as much imagination as the writers, and they seem to be extremely limited and narrowminded with the damn robes bull. Talk about adamant that everyone should be in a baggy shlubby dress.

      • Anonymous

        In order to restore the Jedi order as Yoda said he must, Luke studied the traditions of the ancient order. That includes traditional robes. Monks who live alone still usually wear the traditional garb of their order. I’m sure he was also influence in no small part by Ben and Yoda, making his robes more a tribute to his mentors then his previous black garb which he most likely realized evoked more appearance of the dark side

      I bet its a hologram message that he put in R2. He was with R2 at some point, we see that in the trailer. but these new shots show R2 with 3PO at the resistance base. perhaps R2 has something to share with everyone and is waiting for the right moment to do it. Just as he did with Leia’s message for Ben.

    He is being captured for a photogrammetry scan. So, his character might need a digital double for some sequences. Usually reserved for action sequences or dangerous stunts.

Hopefully the latter and also not because this photo reveals more of Luke’s future in the film than what I originally wanted to know! Ah but to hell with it. JJ and Kathy Kennedy were asking for a lot of waiting. December 2015?! Since Nov. of 2014??? Yeah, I’m gonna be foaming at the mouth by this point.

    I love the gray and white, as well as the more subtle facial hair.

    “However, it also doesn’t resemble the costume worn by whomever is seen putting his or her cybernetic hand on Artoo in the second teaser”

    I beg to differ. You can clearly see a white / cream coloured sleeve under the cloak, one that would very much match this costume. The only thing different is the robe in the trailer looks darker which could possibly be due to dark lighting.

    I think it’s luke in the trailer.
