Mark Hamill hints at Luke Skywalker return in Star Wars IX

By Alexandra Heilbron on March 21, 2019 | 5 Comments

Mark Hamill in The Last JediMark Hamill hinted during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night that Luke Skywalker may play a part in Star Wars: Episode IX.

He was describing how the makeup department had to glue a fake beard over his natural beard for his role on the TV series Knightfall when he let it slip that he needed to keep the real beard “for something else.”

Jimmy immediately asked if Mark meant the upcoming new installment of Star Wars, but the actor played it coy, only saying, “Well it’s NDA — that’s non-disclosure agreement.” He then gave a comical big wink out to the audience, who cheered.

Star Wars fans are of course aware that Luke Skywalker appeared to die in the last episode, titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Jimmy pressed on, asking, “So you were shooting simultaneously?” Mark replied,  “Possibly.”

Jimmy said, “So we know then maybe that Luke Skywalker has a beard still and has a body still in the next movie.”

Mark looked puzzled and asked, “Which movie?”

Check out the video below — do you think Luke Skywalker will make an appearance in the new movie based on what Mark said?

    I hope it means he didn’t actually die in the last film. That last one was the worst Star Wars so far, other than the three prequels.

    To me, the prequels are better than this junk they’re calling Star Wars now. ????

    Constance, you mean the ones with Anakin Skywalker? Or the ones with Luke and Han? The ones that were done after the originals are the prequels. They’re basically unwatchable.

    Sequels, prequels, whatever, just keep making more!!!

    I really wish they would have followed the expanding universe books. There are 63 of them that is at least 63 years worth of movies probably ranking up there in 2 trillion dollars worth of movies and I’ve read all of them and I think all but one were really good books that would have turned into really good movies
