It's been a long time since Luke Skywalker was a fresh-faced young lad sipping blue milk and bullseying womp rats in his T-16 back home. 

Modern Luke Skywalker looks much more, shall we say, hobo-ish.

Mark Hamill, who is reprising his role as Skywalker in Star Wars Episode VII, posted this picture to his Instagram today with the caption, "This is as close as Lava Bear got to the action (since he was barred from the set)," whatever the hell that means. 

One thing we do know is that director J.J. Abrams' Episode VII is set about 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and nothing visualizes the passing of time like a thick, luscious beard. 

Skywalker won't be the only one with a new look when the film hits theaters in December 2015. The franchises's iconic stormtroopers are changing their style up too, according to this
