Hungarian Magazine Shows New Look At Luke Skywalker In Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Want to get a better look at what Luke Skywalker looks like in this Star Wars: The Last Jedi outfit? A Hungarian magazine publication has you covered, as a cover features this same costume without the hood.



The latest issue of Cinemánia Mozimánia features a very determined-looking Luke Skywalker on the cover of the issue:



The headline here roughly translates to “Luke Retaliates” – and another translation of this bit of text “Luke Strikes Back”, which I’d argue is more thematically-important. Redditor Max-Max-Maxxx did the honors of photoshopping the letters out of the image:



The vibe that I’m getting from this image is not one of a “reluctant, weary teacher” Luke Skywalker, which is what the big story from Entertainment Weekly portrayed him as. This is “I’m back, I’m a Jedi Master, and I’m going to completely wreck your sh*t” Luke. And given that we’ve all been waiting to see Luke let loose, this is a welcome direction for the character – and I can only hope that we’ll get to see the Light Side equivalent of the Darth Vader scene at the very end of Rogue One. Only three and a half months to go!



Also thanks to our friend Leonardo J. Bonilla for sending us the cover earlier today.

    It should definitely be translated as Luke Strikes Back. They are channelling the title of The Empire Strikes Back which is in Hungarian “A Birodalom visszavág”

    • August 30, 2017 at 12:02 pm

      Doesn’t utolsó mean final in Hungarian? The title seems similar to the original one.

      • September 1, 2017 at 7:06 pm

        I’m not talking about the title of the movie. (That’s the same as in English, The Last Jedi (plural). I’m talking about what’s written at the bottom of the magazine cover, under the episode title. It says Luke visszavág = Luke strikes back.

  • August 30, 2017 at 10:52 am

    If there is no Luke action with the green lightsaber it will be another great moment missed. I know it sounds like fan-service, but after his lack in VII its something we need to really boost VIII.

    • August 30, 2017 at 12:53 pm

      I hear you but, lately, I’ve been thinking that – assuming Luke survives VIII, which seems a given – it could be cool if they use VIII to only establish that he still has the green lightsaber, maybe even having him ignite it but without using it in an actual fight and then wait until IX to show him in action with it (maybe, but not necessarily, while sending him out in a blaze of glory).

      • August 30, 2017 at 1:04 pm

        That would be cool, though any big climatic scene in IX should really be focused on Rey.

      • August 30, 2017 at 6:29 pm

        the worry would be then, that something happens to Hamil (God forbid) and then no Luke in 9….

      • August 31, 2017 at 3:06 am

        I don’t want to wait till 9 to see Luke fight. Why hold off on the moment that is going to MAKE the movie ?

      • September 1, 2017 at 2:47 pm

        It would be a waste, having Luke in the entire movie and he not taking part in the action. The new canon took great lenghts to stablish Luke (and Vader) as great warriors. And then, when the thing that ALL the fandom were expecting happens, the true “return of the Jedi”, he doesn’t fight? With a full war around him??

        The backlash would be enormours. And with justice.

    • August 31, 2017 at 6:12 pm

      I was thinking yesterday in this: WHAT IF they are saving the Luke’s lightsaber reveal because he will use one with a model similar to the Kylo Ren’s one? There is a minimal possibility to that. Besides that image of Ezra, Luke is in the VERY FIRST Jedi Temple, the original one. Maybe he got a hilt in this model to make his actual lightsaber… Who knows, it would be a great foil, very relevant in simbolism, theme…

      • August 31, 2017 at 7:27 pm

        Wouldn’t he have the one from RotJ? Doesn’t he have it at the end on Endor?

        • September 1, 2017 at 1:04 am

          He does. But it’s been 30 years, and he went off on a quest to figure out what the hell is wrong with the Jedi, so he may have picked up a bad ass new toy.

          I’d say doubtful on this, but it is feasible he has a new weapon.

          • September 1, 2017 at 2:43 pm

            Yes, only a thing that crossed my mind. What puzzles me is that Lucasfilm refrained to show Luke’s lightsaber in Episode VIII. In comparison, Kylo’s lightsaber was in the very first teaser. Maybe it is nothing, maybe it’s something. (we pray to the Force that it won’t mean an absence of the weapon to Luke…)

    • September 1, 2017 at 1:03 am

      Now be careful, Lewis. You know I love you, but a number of folks here complain about fan service, than ask for fan service 😛

      Double edged sword. But one would assume green lightsaber action is a given.

      We got red lightsaber action with Vader in a movie that wasn’t even about him and people flipped the f-ck out. Why would they not repeat?

      Only reason not to would be to wait for the IX if he survives VIII.

      • September 1, 2017 at 11:45 am

        I totally understand – fan-service is a tricky subject. I personally love a bit of it, but it needs to be done right. Important to the story and not corny. Problem is everyone has a view on how it should be done, if at all. Damn those opinions.

  • August 30, 2017 at 1:53 pm

    One of the best costumes I’ve ever seen for SW. It fits the moment of this character so much.

  • August 30, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    I’m a Hungarian Star Wars Fun, and the exact translation of the headline:
    (en) The Empire Strikes Back = (hun) A Birodalom Visszavág

  • August 30, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    Luke looks like the unassuming old guy at the pub who’s secretly a total badass.

  • August 30, 2017 at 2:52 pm

    I strongly believe that he will KICK-ASS in the film. In the supposed part where Ach-To is assaulted by the First Order, he will indeed bring the pain to them!! I can even imagine…

    • August 30, 2017 at 4:37 pm

      And I am sure he will be reluctant to do so, seems to fit the character. I think he doesn’t want conflict anymore, but he will be force into it

      • August 31, 2017 at 6:04 pm

        I respectly disagree. He is, I believe, very frustrated. When this raid occur, he will let it loose, lash out some of his anger. it is my bet, as I can get from Rian and Mark Hamil interviews, that EW scopes, etc. I can be wrong too, of course, but I sense that it will indeed happen. (And I wish that too!)

        • September 1, 2017 at 12:36 am

          Well I hope he shows he is a badass, I just wish he doesn’t let anger take over him. This would defeat the purpose of being a Jedi master. He should take part of the conflict because he needs to, no because he wants to…

          • September 1, 2017 at 2:36 pm

            I know, but we know too that he is different, he is frustrated, because of his failure with Kylo. He will be unexpected in his actions, not the hero we remember, at least in the beggining. Rey for instance, will be surprised.

            But I agree with you, I too want that he does not reject entirely the Jedi way. I think he will come around, with time.

  • August 30, 2017 at 2:58 pm

    I find his lack of lightsaber disturbing.

    • August 30, 2017 at 3:54 pm

      I can assure you, Luke will use a lightsaber at some point in this film. They are hiding his lightsaber like they did for Rey in the TFA.

      • August 30, 2017 at 7:01 pm

        In the last 15 seconds of the film … He ignites it then …. credits.
        Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, dammit.

  • August 30, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    This is the Luke Skywalker we were looking for.

    • August 30, 2017 at 6:01 pm

      The one that we need, and deserve.

      • August 31, 2017 at 3:05 am

        If Rian ruins Luke, I will NEVER forgive him and it will be a Prequel-caliber mistake.

  • August 30, 2017 at 5:26 pm


  • August 30, 2017 at 5:28 pm


  • August 30, 2017 at 5:30 pm

    I wonder why he was wearing traditional Jedi Robes in TFA but now have more everyday clothes on. Was he doing some sort of ritual? Seems weird.

    • August 30, 2017 at 7:33 pm

      It was in the wash

    • August 30, 2017 at 8:02 pm

      Maybe he changed clothes.

      • August 30, 2017 at 9:09 pm


    • September 1, 2017 at 1:01 am

      It picks up directly where VII left off. This may be what he wears later in the film if he leaves Ahch-To. These seem more like “On the Road” Jedi duds as compared to “Old Hermit living on a rock in the middle of an ocean waiting to train a protege” Jedi duds.

  • August 30, 2017 at 6:00 pm

    Call me cynical (I know you do) but so far, Luke is my top-most reason to be excited about TLJ. I love Leia and Finn, but for me, this movie is all about Luke.

    • August 30, 2017 at 6:07 pm

      We agree on something. Will miracles never cease? I sort of liked how Luke wasn’t in TFA until the very end. His showing up (or lack thereof) kept a brimming tension throughout the movie. That being said, I can’t wait to see him in TLJ.

    • August 30, 2017 at 6:23 pm

      At this point, it IS the only thing that I look forward to. I’m hoping he’s as powerful as in the EU….and we get to see all of that power displayed. If not, for me…a major let down.

    • August 30, 2017 at 7:15 pm

      One reason I was underwhelmed by TFA was the Luke absence,he is Star Wars to me,more so than Vader,Han or Yoda and co.

    • August 31, 2017 at 3:04 am

      SAME. I’m going to this for Luke. Rey is cool but basic.

  • August 30, 2017 at 6:26 pm

    I’d personally like to see him drop the old Jedi robes and be in all black again, like ROTJ! Shave up, put on his breaking it off in your ass clothes and completely wreck some shit on a massive level! And don’t forget, he needs to pull out that Green beast on his side and show us some skill with it as well! Just my opinion, but I think a lot of fans would love to see it.

  • August 30, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    This image exudes power! Makes me.even more excited for TLJ.

  • August 30, 2017 at 7:13 pm

    That’s the coolest thing I’ve seen so far for this film. I don’t Cosplay,but if I did that would be it,after I diet for a month or two to lose this hobbit belly.

    • September 1, 2017 at 12:59 am

      That’s a fresh idea.

      • September 1, 2017 at 7:39 am

        Well done.

  • August 30, 2017 at 10:12 pm

    Fantastic! I am old school Star Wars and I (we all) are looking forward to seeing Luke show his real side…Of course everyone is talking about his Green lightsaber, but what would be epic and respect to the original movies, is that he is reunited with his “fathers” lightsaber and raves havoc on the bad guys…or at least gets to use it since he lost it on Bespin(and his hand)

    • August 31, 2017 at 2:58 pm

      But where’s his hand? He’s gonna be looking for that too.

  • August 31, 2017 at 2:39 am


  • August 31, 2017 at 3:03 am

    This sums up EXACTLY what the Fan Base wants from Luke: “I’m back, I’m a Jedi Master, and I’m going to completely wreck your sh*t” Luke.” PLEASE RIAN PLEASE.

  • August 31, 2017 at 3:23 am

    Ah yes. Luke kicking butt with his daughter at his side!

  • August 31, 2017 at 4:15 am

    May Luke be to the Knights of Ren what Vader was to the Rebels in Rogue One or Obi-Wan was to Maul in the desert the last time they met. Short, to the point no nonesense wreckage. If Luke does not absolutely slay and does not use a saber at all then I will never underestimate Hollywood’s ability to wreck a perfectly simple movie. This is easy Disney, don’t overthink it, have Luke kick complete and total ass.

  • August 31, 2017 at 4:29 am

    Killer pick. Smashing.

  • August 31, 2017 at 4:36 am

    I must admit. He looks good.

  • August 31, 2017 at 6:36 am

    Now, THAT is a costume. Props to the production designers for Luke as he looks amazing. He is among one of the sole reasons, outside of RJ, why I will be seeing TLJ. My hope is that we can get a natural progression of who Luke was. A part of me hates how the Jedi have once more been wiped out. I always saw the New Jedi Order as the next progression.

    It is why I honestly consider the events with Luke via the NC an alternative timeline and Legends the canon the actual timeline. But I digress. My hope is that Luke is that blend of Obi-wan and Yoda, but also being his own person and that he has a good reason for abandoning the galaxy.

    Because, while I get that TFA didn’t want to include Luke; his presence in my view was missed. Because, really I remember watching a very good TFA review to which asked the question of why the galaxy even needed Luke with Rey around? Hopefully, the movie will answer that question.

    • August 31, 2017 at 6:00 pm

      Looks more like the New Jedi Order was destroyed before it was fully established, destroyed in the progress I think.

      • August 31, 2017 at 6:52 pm

        And thus my issue. Whenever people say TFA ruins ROTJ I can understand them. Luke reforming the Jedi was the natural flow of the story. Hence, Yoda’s blessing/ willingness to train him. And I think that could have been a better path to see Luke’s temple.

        Heck, it didn’t need to have been large like what Legend of Korra did for air benders. But nope; the destruction so far comes off as a reset button. So overall, my hope is that by the end of the ST we see the Jedi order again in full.

        Because imagine, if we had a Jedi temple during the ST and then the next series of movies did TFA where the Jedi were obliterated. The history repeating itself would have more merit.

      • September 1, 2017 at 3:55 am

        JJ went to the tragic depressive road of nowdays storylines

  • August 31, 2017 at 2:57 pm

    Alright let’s get this show on the road! GIMME LUKE SKYWAKAH!!!!

  • August 31, 2017 at 5:56 pm

    I’m a bit concerned about my Rey spending any time alone with this man.


  • September 1, 2017 at 12:20 am

    Man I know I am going to be disappointed, but I hope Rian Johnson has Luke go straight up Force Unleashed in this movie. I want epic.

    • September 1, 2017 at 12:27 am

      I’m with you on both points. I want to see Luke really let loose and I know that I’m going to be disappointed.

    • September 1, 2017 at 3:52 am

      Untill now We didn’t have any Force scene in the movies that barely resembles Force Unleashed and Old Republic cinematics. Hope on TLJ

  • September 1, 2017 at 12:55 am

    Never, ever thought I’d say this.

    Mark Hamill looks pretty bad ass.

  • September 1, 2017 at 3:58 am

    Luke is the ultimate hero of our generation!!!
