There's A New Picture Of Luke Skywalker Looking Like A Damn Jedi Daddy And People Are Losing Their Minds

He can go to *my* Tosche Station to pick up some power converters any time.

The first live-action movie I ever remember seeing was the original Star Wars, which pretty much sealed my fate as a life-long fan.


Thanks, mom and dad.

This also means that the first (nonanimated) crush I remember having as a kid was, of course, Han Solo.



However, when I went to see The Force Awakens a couple of years ago, I couldn't help but notice that a certain ~lonely Jedi Master~ was WORKIN' that daddy beard something fierceee.

It also doesn't hurt that Mark Hamill himself just happens to be a hilarious human being and very active on social media.

So this week when he posted a new cover shot of Luke looking Michael Jackson–style ~bad~ on Twitter, people damn near lost their minds.

And for good reason, because ummm...hello there.

Some fans were (rightfully) more concerned about the Sith-esque red glow to the left of the picture.

If Luke Skywalker joins the dark side so help me god I will sue Disney for emotional distress

if i see the words "dark" "dark side" "evil" and "luke skywalker" used in the same sentence one more time

Luke Skywalker joining the dark side would be a huge kick in the balls and I hope it happens.

While others were just admiring the view.

That is the grizzled Luke Skywalker (in the actual production photo) of my childhood dreams.

@HamillHimself I am jealous of the beard. I can't grow one for the life of me.

get hype for Old Man Luke Skywalker

I also just found out that Mark Hamill stans refer to themselves as "Hamsters," and it's literally the best thing I learned this week.

@HamillHimself Breathtaking! We Hamsters are swooning since this morning 🐹🐹🐹🐹😵😵😵😵🚑🚑🚑🚑

So yeah, in short, I'm hype AF for The Last Jedi (as if I needed another reason to be).
