Why Luke Skywalker is missing from 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' promos

The Internet is bothered by the fact that the beloved "Star Wars" character does not appear -- at least not openly -- in either the trailer or the poster for the forthcoming and eagerly awaited "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

And when the web is bothered rest assured that there will be theories aplenty.


The one lots of folks appear to be rallying around is that Skywalker, played by actor Mark Hamill, is now one of the bad guys.

"One evening, while geeking out with my daughters, I decided to share a theory I had with them about Star Wars — specifically Return of the Jedi: Luke Skywalker turned to the Dark Side at the end of the trilogy," writes Rob Conery on Observer.com. "I shared this story with them because I think my theory is reinforced by trailer for the new movie."
