Is Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) the only villain in the new trilogy? What if there’s another big villain hiding in plain sight? A new theory about “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” reveals a possibility that can shock fans to the core. The following article contains details about leaked images and potential spoilers of the plot.

A new theory posted on Screen Rant suggests that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is the “secret villain” in the new trilogy. The character may not turn to the Dark Side after helping his father defeat the Sith, but he may become bad in a certain kind of way.

Luke will be busy training Rey (Daisy Ridley) in the upcoming sequel. But there may come a time when he will have to fight his own apprentice. One way this could be possible is if Hamill’s character has turned into a Grey Jedi, a Force wielder who taps into both the Dark and the Light.

The theory about Luke turning into the villain is based on sketches leaked by Making Star Wars, a website that has earned the reputation for being a dependable source after most spoilers the website shared about “Force Awakens” turned out right. The sketch reportedly shows Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), Snoke and others. Towering over all of them is said to be Luke.

Fans may not have to wait till the final movie in the new trilogy to find out if this theory is right. Luke’s transformation into a villain is said to be essential to the plot in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Will the Jedi Master become a bigger threat in the galaxy than the First Order?
