Someone has broken through the intense security surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and escaped with our first look at Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker in the long-awaited sequel. Want to see?
Potential spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
As you can plainly see in the image below, Luke is sporting a traditional Jedi robe, in light colors, which would likely mean he is a “good guy” in this film. Or perhaps it's a fakeout in regard to the color scheme. There has been immense speculation that Luke Skywalker has turned to the Dark Side, or at the least become ambivalent toward humanity in the decades since the original trilogy.
Though the set pic below doesn’t end the debate entirely, we can at least confirm he’s not rocking a Sith robe or Darth Vader helmet. Take your time and dig in below:

It’s worth noting we don’t actually know how much Hamill will be in the sequel, though director J.J. Abrams recently noted that the question of “Who is Luke Skywalker?” is one of the biggest reasons he decided to sign on for the project. So we’d imagine there’s a whole lot more to the story than just “good guy.” Is he driven mad with power? Haunted by kissing his sister? Still a freedom fighter?
What do you think? Who will Luke be in Force Awakens?
