Luke’s Potential Jedi Master Robe Featured in Latest Star Wars Episode VIII Set Pic

Star Wars Episode VIII Director, Rian Johnson, shared a new picture from the set on Tumblr today, and in the pic there’s a robe hanging against a rock wall. To me, the cape looks like part of Luke’s Jedi Master getup that we briefly saw at the end of The Force Awakens. It’s not a full on Jedi robe like we saw in the prequels, as it looks more like a cape, but I’m going with it being a part of Luke’s costume. Check it out below.

You can see it in the image from The Force Awakens below for comparison. I could be off, but I think the Force is with me on this one.


Star Wars Episode VIII is currently filming and is set to hit theaters in December of 2017.
