I was able to roundup one new Star Wars rumor for us this week.
This rumor is about our buddy, Luke Skywalker, in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
As always, PLEASE STOP READING NOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO AVOID ANY STAR WARS RUMORS AND SPOILERS!!!
Okay, you’ve been warned! Here we go…
RUMOR: Luke may not have or use a lightsaber in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
Yeeeaaaaahhhhhh, I really doubt the validity of this rumor.
But it’s out there so let’s discuss it…
The illustration is awesome and you should definitely check it out on their site! It shows Luke in dark gray robes with absolutely no belt. So, question is, where would his lightsaber go? Maybe he doesn’t use one?
Here is what Making Star Wars had to say about it: “You will also notice there isn’t really any belt or anything for his lightsaber. It makes us wonder if what our friends in Ireland saw was actually a saber or not during the filming, as there seems to be some contention as to if Luke ever actually uses one in this film.”
I don’t think it makes sense to assume that Luke may not use a lightsaber if his costume does not have a belt. (Inside pocket in his robes, anyone?)
I just think it would be a let-down if fans don’t get to see Luke kick ass with a lightsaber. (I mean, I will be SUPER BUMMED.) But, with rumors about Luke having mysterious new powers, I guess anything is possible. Per usual, we will just have to wait and see!
What do you think about these Star Wars rumors/spoilers? Can you imagine Luke NOT using a lightsaber in the upcoming film??? Leave comments and let us know!
