    He's so pristine because he's posing in front of photogrammetry equipment. It's capturing and scanning a 3D image of him. Those images can be mapped onto stunt doubles, used for toys or to make molds, etc. I'm sure he will be more like Old Ben when we see him actually walking and talking and moving. Old Ben's hair was out of place, his robe shuffled and moved. That's how Luke will look.

    Also, if you look at the color palette for his robes, it appears to closely match his beard. Not sure if that's on purpose or what. It's interesting because the "Luke" we see in trailer 2 putting his hand on R2 appears to have a black or dark brown cloak with white sleeves, similar to PT Obi-Wan. It seems Luke will attempt to bring back the old Jedi look in this movie. A look that hasn't been seen in this galaxy for a long time.

    Because the pristine robed Luke we saw in this leak is not the same person as the cyborg we saw with his robotic hand on top of R2 in the second teaser. The robes there were darker, with lighter ones inside. The robotic hand is different from Luke's after ESB.

    I know the voiceover from Luke strongly suggests it was him, but what if that cyborg is not Luke, but Kylo Ren impersonating Luke? Or better yet, what if it is Rey after she loses her hand to Kylo Ren and while she says goodbye to her father, Han Solo, after he was murdered by Kylo? The robotic arm in the teaser seems very thin and almost feminine to me. I don't think anyone has ever suggested this latter possibility...

    Would be interresting to know why the cover creators for the novels and the comic book artists from Darkhorse for the old eu didn't let Luke, Leia, Han and Mara age in realistic ways and why these things were never discussed in all these years... I never saw a discussion of this on the net!

    I love this look for Luke. I wanted to see him in actual Jedi robes and they delivered. I also like the color tone and how it matches up with his farmboy costume from ANH. The color scheme being a bit of a nod to the first movie while firmly depicting Luke as a Jedi.

    I assume we will see him a little dirtier in the movie, and they were filming for toys and/or video games when that pic was taken. Fine with me.

    Except here is the thing, Luke having dissapeared... hasnt been confirmed by any canon sources.

    What if he is fine, and everyone knows where he is, and he is just training jedi....

    What if the reason they bring him thte dang lightsaber at the end is to get HIM to decode the message.

    Or what if Luke is actually found early in the movie, and this is after he cleans himself up?

    But also, here is my thoughts on the outfit.... I like it, and it alleviated my fear that they would be completely dismissive of the prequels.

    I would like to see that.More interesting. If Luke was in open-field(like the Jedi were in the PT) he would be a easy target. I'm not to fond of this robe(I'm like 1 out of 20 ,right :D ) . Looks too Obi Wan. I rather see maybe a casual outfit or darker themed robe. My thoughts.

    I could be wrong but wasn't Yoda(as the grand master) the only Jedi to have a light coloured outer robe/cloak? If that's the case then it suggests Luke now occupies the same position.

    Why would R2 be totally fine with Kylo using him as an arm rest?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the photo was taken a few weeks ago while they're doing fittings for new Episode VIII costumes. Filming doesn't start until the spring but there's an awful lot of work to do before then.

    The other thing I'm surprised nobody's mentioned is, this is a leak and there's been no confirmation that the costume is the one they went with. Could be last minute changes...

    Doubt it's changed - between the Disney "take down" requests & also the fact that it appears to be a full 3D scanning session, think it's fairly certain to be legit.

    I like the look, just seems like too much white. Maybe they are going for the pure good look I don't know, but I was hoping for something more akin to his look in Jedi, with the black incorporated somehow.

    Love the arrangement, but was hoping for Jedi Robes in white, grey, and black. Reflecting a guy in balance with the force, light, dark, and in between.

    But, maybe the all white super pure good look shows he has a different role than suspected?? Hard to picture Luke wearing this costume alone on his island, just hanging out, when Rey gives him his old sabre back. Just a thought.

    I posted this in a different thread but I think it pretty much confirms that the setup was for 3D imaging for toys and such. Listen to what Issac says around the 1:28 mark.

    Ralok is right. We don't know ANYTHING about Luke, except for the endless speculation and blathering of every site and fan on the net. We don't know how long we'll see him in the film, where he'll be, or what state that he'll be in.

    In fact, he COULD be a central figure in the film, but we need to be VERY CAREFUL not to automatically become convinced because two sites reported the same material and 7 different fans "know someone" that agreed.....at this point it's second-hand information, rumor, conjecture, and outright guessing....remember that.

    To me, the Luke image says something different than the run-of-the-mill speculation. First of all, he still has the beard, and if we'll remember, he was minus the beard in some of the released press photos which to me means that his garb spells "Obi-Wan wise Jedi" in clean clothing...not a hermit in a cave. This too, is speculation. :)

    Mark Hamill grew his beard much longer throughout filming, so it is seems possible, that he is seen in a much more ragged state at some point.

    Why does everyone say "Force ghost" why not hologram? what if he is in contact with the main characters?

    The reason why rumors say he is only in one scene, could be because his other appearences area s holograms.

    Agree. I've been saying hologram. All those cameras, the pose, the clothes. Looks like hologram filming to me. Maybe R2 is projecting it, Jabba's palace style.

    It's been said before, but my thoughts on the Luke pic are that it's not for Ep7 specifically but as a scan for toys - as Isaac (or was it Boyega?) said explicitly.
    Could be wrong of course, but something doesn't quite add up. I can't imagine this is Luke pre-disappearance, but could imagine it as a finale look for Ep7, going into 8...

    Maybe it's because everyone expects him to die before TFA starts.
