First Images Of Luke Wielding A Lightsaber Come From International Poster For The Last Jedi

We're in the same quarter as a new Star Wars movie, which means that every bit of information drip-fed to us is like a drop of water in the desert. In this case, thanks to the poster for the movie's Japanese release, we finally get a look at Luke with his lightsaber, suggesting Skywalker won't just be sitting back and watching the younglings do all the work.

The lightsaber is the same one that Rey brought to Luke at the end of The Force Awakens, rather than his green one from Return of the Jedi. This is to be expected - why would you even bother to reintroduce the lightsaber as important if he wasn't going to use it? - but at least we can probably say Luke has not been tinkering away at replacing that lightsaber during his sabbatical.

If you're in the United States, you can catch The Last Jedi on December 15, but it is not releasing anywhere in the world before the December 14. I've got my tickets, how about you?
