Hamill Shoots Down Dark Side Luke Talk

A recent stash of promotional material for Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” has hinted that Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker may have turned to the Dark Side.

Posters and art have positioned his character alongside other villains in the film including Kylo Ren and Supreme Leader Snoke, which has prompted the speculation. In a new interview with Hamill for Disney Rewards Insider (via Movieweb), Hamill himself has clarified what’s happening:

“Luke has lost confidence in his ability to make good choices. It haunts him to the core. But he hasn’t gone to the dark side. This isn’t an evil version of him. But it’s still an incarnation of the character I never expected. It has pulled me out of my comfort zone. It’s a real challenge.”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens in U.S. cinemas on December 15th.
