Mark Hamill's new Last Jedi look is on the dark side

Considering it’s been decades since we last saw him (at length), it’s fair to assume Luke Skywalker has undergone some changes ahead of The Last Jedi. He’s now light-years away from the farm boy we first met—this world-weary guy hangs out with porgs, not Ewoks. And while we still don’t know much about his role in Episode VIII, we have gotten a preview of the grizzled warrior’s battle wardrobe, courtesy of Mark Hamill.


As you can see, Luke’s ditched the neutrals for a darker look, one that’s all heavy knits and layers. Hamill’s serving up an equally grim expression here, a potent reminder that the Resistance will rise again (as if we needed one). We’ll see how well that cape moves in a lightsaber duel when Star Wars: Episode VIII—The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.
