Is Luke turning to the Dark Side in these new Star Wars: The Last Jedi images?

August 31st, 2017 by Marc Comments

With today being the eve of Force Friday II and only three months out from director Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we thought we’d take a look at two cool new images from the movie.

The first image is of Luke Skywalker wearing a new black outfit from the movie. We’re hearing this isn’t an actual still from the movie, but is how he’ll appear in the movie.


You’ll notice he’s wearing a glove on his robotic hand – this is something he wasn’t wearing at the end of The Force Awakens. The red glow at the bottom of the image is very interesting and has us wondering if this is a nod to Luke’s rumoured moving towards the Dark Side. Personally, I believe that we’ll see Luke fighting with both the Dark and Light side of the Force in the movie.

The image was originally from hungarian magazine Cinemania Mozimánia:

The second image is a new one, not terribly exciting, of Rey (from behind) during her Jedi training on Ahch-To along with Luke.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be coming to our galaxy on December 15th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
