While promoting one of his upcoming projects, Mark Hamill commented on his role in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and revealed how his character Luke Skywalker returns for the final installment of the Skywalker saga.
With almost every major franchise seemingly coming to an end, many fans are having to say goodbye to some of their favorite characters. One franchise that is coming up on its final installment is the Star Wars sequel trilogy. The sequel trilogy has been divisive, to say the least, with many fans disliking Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Many Star Wars fans have vocally come out and stated one of the reasons they disliked The Last Jedi was the death and character arc of Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker. Luke, who had previously been the protagonist of the original trilogy, served as more of a mentor and teacher for Daisy Ridley’s new protagonist Rey. Luke died towards the end of The Last Jedi, but the character will be back for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the final installment of the Skywalker saga.
While doing the press rounds for Child’s Play, Mark Hamill was asked by the Associated Press if this was his final time playing the character of Luke Skywalker. Hamill said the following:
“I sure hope so, well, because…I had closure in [The Last Jedi]. The fact that I’m involved in any capacity is only because of that peculiar aspect of the Star Wars mythology where if you’re a Jedi, you get to come back and make a curtain call as a Force ghost.”
While the character was infamously killed off in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it seems Luke will continue to play an important role in the Star Wars universe even after his death as a Force ghost. When it was announced Mark Hamill would return for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, many speculated on just how he might come back and it seems fans now have their answer.
Force ghosts have been part of the Star Wars mythology for years and it seems the character of Luke will following in the steps of many great Jedi before him, thus concluding his character arc. Are you excited for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? How do you think Luke Skywalker’s Force ghost will tie into the story? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Full plot details for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are currently under wraps, though the film is set to conclude the Skywalker saga before the franchise takes a three-year hiatus from theaters.
Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. Carrie Fisher will appear as General Leia Organa through the use of previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released in theaters on December 20, 2019.
