Early concept art from Star Wars: The Force Awakens shows off Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker finding Darth Vader’s ruined helmet.
Although Kylo Ren was the one who had Darth Vader’s ruined helmet in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, new concept art shows Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker with it instead. As fans know, Kylo worshipped Darth Vader and promised to finish what he started decades before the events of The Force Awakens. However, we nearly got to see Mark Hamill interact with the iconic mask at some point during the first film in the new trilogy as revealed by this concept art.
The art from Christian Alzman shows Mark Hamill’s Luke in his full Jedi robes holding Darth Vader’s helmet in an unknown location. It’s possible the potential moment from The Force Awakens was taking place on Ahch-To where Luke had fled to, but that’s not clear. Interestingly, Darth Vader’s helmet isn’t as warped and destroyed like it is in the film, but it’s still clearly damaged after the events of Return of the Jedi. Take a look at the concept art of Mark Hamill’s Luke in The Force Awakens below.
