Mark Hamill teases Star Wars Episode IX

Mark Hamill It might be a long time in the future in a galaxy far far away, but Mark Hamill is already teasing Star Wars Episode IX.

The 64-year-old Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor tweeted a video of himself shaving off his Luke Skywalker beard. “Haven’t seen my chin since May ’15, so #FarewellFacialFur & #ByeByeBeard (at least til #EpisodeIX),” he tweeted.

The shave was filmed to anoint the wrap of Episode VIII‘s filming schedule. By mentioning Episode IX, Mark has unleashed a tidal wave of speculation.

It can now be reasonably assumed that Luke Skywalker will appear in Star Wars: Episode IX.

Star Wars: Episode IX is not to be confused with Star Wars Episode VIII, which comes out next year. Star Wars Episode IX is currently slated for a 2019 release.

Plot details surrounding these movies have been extremely hush hush. Those wanting their Star Wars fix can rest easy, knowing that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is only four short months away.

Check out the tweet below, and leave your thoughts in the comments.

In the meantime, all you Toronto fans can catch Mark at Fan Expo Canada 2016 at the Toronto Convention Centre this weekend (Sept. 1 to 4, 2016)! ~Yanis Khamsi

    Not really a spoiler. All it means is, if Hamill is being serious, that he will be in Episode IX. What does that give away? He’s a Jedi, so dead or alive he can still appear in the next movie. Obi Wan Kenobi and Yoda both did it. Surely Luke can. 😉
