One of the most hyped question regarding "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is, where is Luke Skywalker?

Though the official cast confirmed long ago that Mark Hamill is going to reprise the role of Luke from the original movies, he is not seen in any of the trailers released so far.

Fans have been pondering the question for a while now. They are curious to know the whereabouts of Luke and why he is missing.

Besides, a recent fan theory stated that in the upcoming movie, Luke Skywalker will be seen joining the dark side and following the footsteps of his father Anakin Skywalker a.k.a. Darth Vader.

In an interview with Extras, J.J. Abrams, director of "The Force Awakens," addressed the fans who are concerned about the role of Luke in the movie.

He said that it was "no accident" Luke is missing from all the trailers and any of the conferences and there is something significant planned for him in the movie.

Talking about the possibilities of Luke joining the dark side, Abrams said: "I saw that too, I'm always interested in seeing people's theories. What'll be cool is when people finally see the movie and see what it really is. Hopefully some people will say, 'I was right,' other people will be like, 'All right, you want people to be debating things even before the movie comes out, it's a dream.'"

He also answered the questions regarding any further trailers released prior to the premiere of the movie.

"We're getting very close, the next thing's really gonna be the movie. There will be commercials, but no more trailers. We've all been working really hard to give people something that will be special to them. Our fingers are just very tightly crossed that when people see the movie they'll like it."

It seems that though fans won't be getting any new trailers or promos of "The Force Awakens," Luke Skywalker is undoubtedly going to surprise them in the movie.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is all set to be released on 18 December in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D formats.
