Star Wars fans have been wondering if and when the infamous jedi Luke Skywalker would be making an appearance, and unfortunately it doesn’t look too promising.
Deciding to quiet some of the rumors that he could possibly return to the franchise for Episode IX, actor Mark Hamill said that he “doesn’t care” about returning to the movies following the death of Carrie Fisher.
Side note: Before you continue, just know there's some Star Wars spoilers that will seriously ruin your day if you haven't seen the movies.
Before Fisher’s death in December 2016, the actress appeared reprising her role as as Princess/General Leia in 2017’s The Last Jedi, the film that saw Luke Skywalker dying at the end. But, that’s not the only death the series faced. In 2016, the world saw Harrison Ford’s character, Han Solo die in 2016’s The Force Awakens.
With the three that started it all gone, it left many fans hoping that maybe Hamill’s character would at least make a cameo of some sort. While we all wouldn’t mind to see Hamill come back into the series, a recent interview with ABC News, showed that Hamill might not be down to reprise his role.
Especially due to Fisher’s death that “really has tarnished my ability to enjoy it to its fullest.” Hamill continued on to say: “I don’t care any more on that level, because Han Solo is gone, Luke is gone and you just can’t get the band back together the way you wanted it to be, and it shouldn’t be that way. So, it is what it is.”
While he doesn’t care on returning to the franchise, he did tell the site that he was grateful to have at least gotten to work with Fisher, saying: “Rather than being sorry that we can’t have more of her, I’m just grateful that we had the time with her that we did.”
This is definitely not the news we wanted to see this morning, but we can still hope that Hamill will have a change of heart and come back for the upcoming film.
