Share

I feel that we, as followers, can unanimously agree that we wouldn't thoughts seeing Power Ghost Luke past Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in future tasks, however we definitely get why Hamill would need some sense of closure after portraying the character for greater than 40 years.

But the actor sounded fairly adamant that he'd made his mind up, saying his "bittersweet" farewell "was in Episode IX".

"I had a beginning, middle, and end", related Hamill. Yesterday was May 9, which is why the actor chose to reflect on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the ninth and last film in the saga.

Mark Hamill - whose body of work is extensive and has most notably featured iconic vocal performances for characters like The Joker - has posted plenty about his time playing Luke Skywalker in a galaxy far, far away. He said: "I think they have a wonderful advantage on 'The Mandalorian' in that it's economical storytelling". I'm very impressed with it and to me, a very smart move on their part because you can't keep trying to top.It's like the superhero movies that have to deliver these gargantuan epics.

It's been nearly a week since Star Wars Day on May 4, but Mark Hamill continues to celebrate the franchise for a full month just like the years before. We can argue over how successful it was in delivering a flawless ending for the trio of trilogies, but whatever your feelings on it, it's emotional that we won't be getting more of the franchise's original heroes.

Following the news that The Mandalorian will feature the return of Boba Fett and Ahsoka Tano, it's been revealed that the upcoming second season of Disney+'s Star Wars series will also see the live-action debut of another popular character first introduced in animated form. "But I don't want to be greedy. We were doing a certain amount of that with each of the "Indiana Jones" movies, but it wasn't like 'Star Wars, ' and I think that each time we would push the technology in making those movies, he got the bug to start thinking about what that might mean for 'Star Wars'".
