Early Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art shows an alternate look for Luke Skywalker.
Luke Skywalker’s appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was hidden from the film’s marketing leading up to the film’s release. This was in large part due to Luke appearing at the end of the film on a literal cliffhanger. Luke would eventually play a much larger and controversial role in the film’s follow-up, The Last Jedi.
Many Star Wars fans had a different idea for where the sequel trilogy would take Luke Skywalker and different directions are reflected in the concept art for The Force Awakens. Early concept art has been released on Instagram and pictures Luke resembling Qui-Gon Jinn in some sort of dream sequence. You can see an early design for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker below.
