For those of you who are wondering if Mark Hamill will reprise his role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IX, the actor may have accidentally let the answers slip. If you don’t want to know whether or not Skywalker makes it through Episode VIII alive, I suggest you don’t read ahead.
While interviewing Ray Davies at a special event in London over the weekend, Hamill told the crowd:
“I finish Episode VIII, and then I’m out of work.”
That sounds to me like we won’t see Luke continue his journey in Episode IX. Maybe Hamill he meant to say, ““I finish Episode VIII, and then I’m out of work… for the time being.” But who knows. Lucasfilm didn’t have any issue killing off Han Solo in the last film. Maybe Luke is the next main character to go down in a blaze of glory?
If Luke was killed off it would truly hit fans hard. I don’t want to see Luke die anytime soon. I'd like to see him live through the saga and make it to Yoda status before he gives up the (force) ghost on his own. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see when Star Wars: Episode VIII is released on December 15th, 2017.
