First Look at Mark Hammill as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens
This week, Kathleen Kennedy summed up the emotional thrust of Star Wars: The Force Awakens with the question: "Who is Luke Skywalker?" Now, we're one (tiny) step closer to figuring that out, as the first image has just been posted online (and then hastily removed at Disney's request):

The most recent news about The Force Awakens confirmed that where Han Solo is definitely one of the leads, it is unknown how much screentime Luke will actually get. This, in conjunction with some heavy-handed hints, has made many fans think that Luke will be some kind of villain in the film, or at least will be struggling with the Dark Side.

He's wearing Jedi robes in the above picture, which at least means he hasn't become a full-fledged Sith Lord in the intervening years, but we're still willing to bet that The Force Awakens contains some kind of battle for his soul.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18.
