Star Wars 8 The Last Jedi: Mark Hamill teases DARKER Luke – ‘He’s changed, I was STUNNED’

Back in April the first teaser for The Last Jedi was released, teasing a darker Luke.

Fans have been wondering if the Jedi has turned to the Dark Side following his words: “I only know one thing. It’s time for the Jedi to end.”

In a recent tweet by Hamill, the actor shared a new picture of Luke looking particularly menacing and dressed in black.

While it’s not certain what’s going through Luke’s mind in The Last Jedi, the 65-year-old star has teased what fans can expect of him.

Speaking with the Associated Press, Hamill said: “Luke changed, I think, more than the other characters in the original trilogy, from callow farm boy to a Jedi in training to finally a Jedi master. 

“What you’re talking about is what really fascinated me. Between Return of the Jedi and Force Awakens, there’s just decades of history that’s unknown. So I was wondering how they’re going to handle all this. 

“Now, obviously, with Force Awakens, JJ [Abrams] had a full plate. It was inevitable that they would push me down the line. I was sorry I wasn’t able to work with any of the original actors again. But it’s not about us anymore.”

In the Associated Press interview, he added: “In this new one, I was saying to Rian Johnson: ‘I need to know my backstory.’ It was kind of unclear. You read where he is now and what he’s doing now and sort of have to fill in the blanks for yourself. 

“So I did do a backstory myself. It’s not about Luke anymore, so it’s not really important. But I had to make sense of it for myself. What Rian came up with, I was stunned.”

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi will be released in UK cinemas on December 14, 2017.
