Luke Skywalker trolled us yet again after being asked about the Star Wars: Episode IX trailer on Twitter.
There’s probably nobody on the planet who wants the Star Wars: Episode IX trailer to drop more than Mark Hamill. Sure, us fans want to see it ASAP, but we’re not the ones getting pestered about it on Twitter everyday, either.

The picture that Hamill posted was actually from the set of The Last Jedi. It really is amazing that more hasn’t been leaked about Episode IX, especially since it’s probably the second-most anticipated movie of the year after Avengers: Endgame. J.J. Abrams and the whole crew have really been keeping everything under lock and key here.
Fortunately for both fans and Hamill, a trailer could very well be on the horizon. Don’t be surprised if a sneak peek drops at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago next month — Abrams is headlining a panel on April 12. This honestly seems like the most logical time for it to drop. Unless we get something during March Madness, I’d bet on Celebration to come through for us.
As for Hamill trolling fans, this is nothing new. Even though I think he probably knows when the trailer is coming, the man just gets a kick out of toying with us — I can just imagine him typing the tweet and cackling in that Joker laugh of his. Evil.
If the trailer and title for Episode IX don’t drop at Celebration, it’s anybody’s guess as to when we get them.
