    Okay. Here we go.

    A friend of mine, and one of the two sources providing the things I have shared, was in town this weekend. He/she brought their new iPhone the size of Texas as well, and decided to show me something he/she described to me a while back and I described to you all as well.

    The person prefaced that this was a more detailed version of the photo, as the original only had the prop and no SFX had been added.


    Just in case you missed the thread moniker, this is a SPOILER.






    Luke Skywalker, bearded and fully fleshed, raising a GREEN lightsaber at Han, who in turn has his classic blaster pointed at him. Adam Driver stands, not so much beside Han, but more off to the side. The perspective almost makes Driver look like he is in the middle. Driver looks concerned, but not frightened, more like he is pondering his next move.

    I hate to say it, but Luke looks like a crazy person. I don't know if he's a villain, a cyborg, or a Jedi Master; but one thing is for sure, he's a long way from the "Luke Skywalker here to rescue you". It was actually a little unsettling to see.

    Luke was in a tattered robe, but I couldn't tell if it was fully brown or black, because it looked dirty and beat to blast.

    I need to mention as well that the source photographed this off a monitor, and despite the much heralded iPhone 6+ camera, it was a little difficult to see some of the finer details.

    Luke has some sort of gash or cut on his left forehead. Think Captain Kirk in Star Trek 3 after he fights the Klingon captain at the end. I guess it's safe to say Luke looks like he just got his ass kicked.

    Han looks like he is trying to reason with him, but also does not look happy to have a lightsaber pointed his way. His clothes look worn as well, and he appears somewhat disheveled. It's unmistakably Han Solo, mostly because of his vest/white long sleeve shirt, as well as his blaster. He looks badass as ever.

    Driver looks like he's dressed business casual. Gray/black suit, with some sort of burgundy vest or jacket thing. It was hard to tell, of the three men, he was in the most dimly lit part of the frame. I still believe he's the villain or secondary villain, but he just looks like a bystander here.

    The three of them are standing in what I guess is a cave or some partially natural environment. The ground beneath them is gravel or dirt. The walls are definitely rock. The lighting is either from a small fire or an incredibly dim source.

    That was the only pic my friend managed to snap. After a few pints I tried to get he/she to spill some more, but that's all they have for now.

    I tried my best to describe what I saw. I apologize for being up an old topic, but I'm pretty floored.

    Let me say I'm not trying to contradict what anyone else has said regarding Luke's role. Episode 7 sounds like it is an incredibly complex film that is setting the stage for two more films and all the other films Disney plans on giving us for the next however long. Basically, we all have pieces of a very big puzzle, and no one will know what they mean until next December. I enjoy reading all the theories, this is just my contribution because I've been in a very lucky position.

    Wow. Nice info!

    Worth noting that the photo being taken with a giant iPhone means this isn't discarded Arndt-draft material.

    I expect that you will see a scene similar to this in the movie but it will be cyborg Luke. This sort of matches what I've heard about Driver - that his real identity is a secret. He wears a mask when he weilds a lightsaber.

    I've
    I've written a lot about him in previous threads. He's the second fiddle bad guy who is doing all the chasing of the good guys, but in the end finds out he was being used. Rich kid gone bad, obsessed with the Sith and desperate to find his place in the universe and the Force, even if it is with the bad guys.

    This not what have been told. Driver is not chasing down force sensitive people or searching for Luke's apprentice

    Thank you for sharing. My main question is was this picture a production still or concept art?

    First off, hello! Decided to stop being a lurker and join in. Kyle, so if Driver is the secondary villain, do you have any idea who the big bad guy is thats ultimately just using him?

    Makes one wonder what made Luke loose it and if its only in this scene.If he is reacting to Han bringing Driver to his hideout.That is if Driver is a baddie and Luke sensing it or maybe even knows this is so.It would complicate the matters if Driver also is the son of Han and Leia.

    That, my friend, is the biggest point of contention of them all at the moment. My source and own theory is that it's a cyborg, mostly in the form of Max Von Sydow, inhabited by some dark side ala Sauron entity. I say mostly in the form because I hear it alters it's appearance throughout the film.

    If you search around this forum you will find many different theories, any of which may be the correct one. I'm only repeating what I have heard and could very well be wrong.

    Welcome to the Cantina, by the way.
