where is luke skywalker

We know for a fact that Mark Hamill is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Somewhere. He’s credited on the poster. His voice is heard in the second trailer, quoting one of his original trilogy lines of dialogue. We’ve even seen one quick glimpse of him. Regarding the picture at the top of this article: who else would have a robot hand, wear a black robe, and touch R2-D2 with such a affection?

However, confirmation that he’s in the movie hasn’t kept curious fans from wondering exactly what’s up with the galaxy’s last Jedi Knight. Now, director J.J. Abrams is here to field the big “Where is Luke Skywalker?” question without spoiling anything.

luke skywalker the force awakens

Mark Hamill is billed second in the credits for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, wedged right in between Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. So we know that Luke Skywalker is in the movie. The fact that the actor playing him has been given the appropriate credit confirms it. Which then takes us to the question on the tip of everyone’s tongue: where is he? His face isn’t on the poster. He doesn’t show up in any of the trailers. There have been no official photos and no LEGO sets that manage to contain massive plot spoilers in their box art. The location and status of the last proper Jedi in the galaxy is a big ol’ question mark.

Where is Luke Skywalker? “Exactly!” says J.J. Abrams as he drops a smoke bomb and vanishes into thin air, his laughter still echoing off the walls.
