This Star Wars rumor involving Luke Skywalker has a big twist

These may or may not be actual spoilers for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film by director J.J. Abrams. If you don’t want to be spoiled in any way, please close your eyes, cover your ears and go, “La la la la.”

We’ve had plenty of Star Wars: Episode VII rumors including Luke Skywalker’s hand and lightsaber floating around in space, Kira looking for Luke and living inside an abandoned AT-AT Walker, and more. Now we have another rumor that may piss off a lot of fans if true. According to Making Star Wars‘ source, Luke Skywalker won’t be the same Jedi you remember from the previous films.

One piece shows this cloaked figure holding the helmet of Darth Vader. The helmet is warped as it has been burned in a fire. The figure almost looks at the helmet with remorse and regret. The background in this image is an Imperial Star Destroyer. The monster holds the helmet in his left hand while his right hand is shown to be very similar to Anakin Skywalker’s and perhaps Luke Skywalker’s.

The black figure sits on a throne. He’s cloaked. We see him from the side. His boots are not unlike Anakin Skywalker’s from Revenge of the Sith. He is approached by “Kira.” The light from outside the shrine emanates from the door way and she walks through it. The cloaked figure sits in darkness, a natural red/yellow fiery light behind him, almost like amber backlights the figure. According to a source, “Kira” believes she is there to meet Luke Skywalker, but instead she finds the monster. In another depiction, she is facing the camera, the cyborg character is embracing her and the look on her face is one of resignation and defeat. We are looking over a character’s shoulder, of what is believed to be Boyega’s character.

So why does “Kira” appear to give up? The reason for her resignation? The cyborg is none other than Luke Skywalker. The revelation beats “Kira” and her quest becomes hopeless. She resigns herself to joining the figure who is the opposite of what she hoped to find. The evil she sought to vanquish with the power of Luke Skywalker, is Luke Skywalker. We are left not knowing the future and how this happened. The cloak appears to be especially close to Luke Skywalker’s Return of the Jedi cloak as well.

Do you think it can be true? If so, what do you think of Luke being a bad guy?
