Where the heck is Luke Skywalker?
Luke has been noticeably absent from all teasers, trailers, promos and even merchandise.
As we get closer to the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the only tidbit from Mark Hamill and Luke Skywalker has been two cast images (pictured above) and a voice-over in a teaser. While an image of Luke Skywalker may have leaked online, we still don’t have a clue about anything in regards to the character.
While we here at Cosmic Book News actually think it’s a good thing (we’re not posting spoilers until the movie debuts), mainstream newspapers and even Mark Hamill himself have taken notice to the lack of attention — or maybe it should be said the lack of “promotion.”
Hamill posted the following image on Facebook of himself peeking behind a newspaper where the headline reads: “Where is Luke?”
An image has also been making its rounds on social media of a “Missing” Luke Skywalker as well (see below).
Obviously we’ll all discover what becomes of Luke on December 18th when the movie opens, and we are also guessing Disney will be amping up a second wave of promotion and merchandise following the movie’s debut with Luke Skywaker and more of the original cast as well.
