The Star Wars films are known for their iconic costumes, with every film building on what was seen in the last, and Star Wars Episode VIII will be no different.  Our friends over at MakingStarWars.net have posted descriptions of the costumes worn by Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and Daisy Ridley as Rey in Episode VIII.  As usual, there is a chance this may not be true but if you are trying to avoid all Episode VIII spoilers then stop reading now.  This is your SPOILER ALERT!

According to MSW,

Rey’s costume is very much what we saw in The Force Awakens at the very end of the film. She has the grey capri length pants with boots as well as the arm wraps. But her vest from the end of the film is gone and she’s only wearing the off white colored tunic beneath, giving the costume a Luke Skywalker vibe. Her hair is also worn down now. She still wears the gun at her hips she received from Han Solo in The Force Awakens. I think that might be telling about where Rey is at in terms of her training and state.

Luke Skywalker wears a darker costume compared to what we saw in The Force Awakens. This costume is more evocative of his Return of the Jedi clothes in cut and color. His under tunic reminds me of Count Dooku but his very dark grey cape drops over the top of his shoulders and chest like a shawl. This leaves his right arm free but half of his chest covered by the cape. It’s almost similar to the asymmetrical cut of Captain Phasma’s cape, but more like a shawl in the way it cover his chest.

The cool part I kept for this write up is that Luke’s black glove from Return of the Jedi is back on his hand. Luke Skywalker’s tunic is cut the same as Dooku’s but the “skirt” part of the tunic appears to be little closer to the knees than Dooku’s was. The shawl aspect of the cape hangs to the left so he can still fight with his right hand as it drapes to the left.

Star Wars Episode VIII hits theaters on December 15th, 2017 and is written and directed by Rian Johnson.
