The official Star Wars Movies Facebook page just updated their cover photo, and it's a picture of Old Luke from Episode 8!

Since we saw tantalizingly little of the our original hero in The Force Awakens, this photo provides some of the first insight we have into how his story will take shape in the next movie.

The look on his face seems to be one of rapture, or maybe even pride — what is he watching? Could it be Rey, as he overseas her Jedi training???

Maybe, since we already learned this much from the official synopsis:

"Rey took her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will continue her epic journey with Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the continuing Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode VIII."

Since filming has already begun, let's hope there are more photos where this came from to help us piece together the puzzle.
