‘Last Jedi’ Posters Have ‘Star Wars’ Fans Worried Luke Is Joining The Dark Side, Mark Hamill Reacts
There are only 38 days, seven hours, and 23 minutes until The Last Jedi hits theaters. While we wait for the next chapter of Star Wars, the internet was overanalyzing Last Jedi posters that seem to hint that Luke Skywalker could be joining the Dark Side. New international TLJ posters feature Finn, Poe, Leia, Rose, and Rey wielding a blue lightsaber on the light side. The other side of the poster that is dark has Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren armed with a red lightsaber. Both sides have Luke Skywalker in the background and Mark Hamill poured Rhydonium on the fire.
So is Luke Skywalker really going to join the Dark Side? In The Empire Strikes Back he told his dad, “I’ll never join you!” And that comes despite the rumors that the Dark Side has cookies. Conspiracy theorists nervously ask why Supreme Leader Snoke isn’t on the Dark Side of the poster instead of Skywalker.
But notice that the poster isn’t entirely black on the Dark Side? It’s more of a grey. Maybe Luke becomes a “Grey Jedi.” Then again, this could all mean nothing but to troll and cause misdirection heading into the highly anticipated Episode 8 of Star Wars. Hamill also shared another poster and quoted the 1968 Beatles song “Glass Onion,” where there is a line that trolls their fans for believing an urban rumor from a “clue” in a verse of the band’s song “I Am the Walrus” that Paul McCartney was dead and replaced with a doppelganger.
