Mark Hamill Confirms Something for Star Wars: Episode IX


Actor Mark Hamill who plays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga, has just set the internet on fire, once again, by tweeting a video of him doing a certain action…

Warning: Spoilers Below!

Mark Hamill has been the flag carrying cast member for Star Wars, for some years now, and especially since news that Disney and Lucasfilm would be making a Sequel Trilogy. The actor has a massive Twitter following, and he interacts with his fans through the social media platform on a daily, and sometimes hourly, basis. Mark Hamill is just a down to earth, all around good dude.

That’s why when the actor took to Twitter late yesterday to post a video of someone shaving his Jedi Master beard, the internet nearly melted. Check it out:

Bye bye, beard indeed! I love how a puppet hand (Yoda’s?) comes in and wipes his face clean, after the shave. However, did you catch the really important part?

"“At least til #EpisodeIX”"

What does this mean for Old Man Luke? Well, there are certainly several conclusions to take from Hamill’s playful teasing of the internet.

  1. Luke makes it through Star Wars: Episode VIII just fine, and we will see him happy and hale in Star Wars: Episode IX.
  2. Luke dies in Star Wars: Episode VIII, but Hamill returns to Star Wars: Episode IX as a Force Ghost.
  3. Hamill is playing the role of his DC character, The Trickster, and Luke dies in Star Wars: Episode VIII, and won’t be appearing in Star Wars: Episode IX.

Next: Ian McDiarmid won’t be in Rogue One…what does this mean for Emperor Palpatine?

We want to hear from you: What do you think will happen to Jedi Master Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VIII? Do you think Mark Hamill is just having fun with his fans? Let us know in the comments below, and on social media.
