AceShowbiz - Mark Hamill has just revealed a major spoiler about the highly-anticipated Disney movie "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker". The actor is set to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker in the upcoming film, despite his apparent demise in the previous installment "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".
As his return has been confirmed with a "Rise of Skywalker" trailer that features Hamill's voice, fans have been speculating about how the character could still be part of the movie. One widely-believed theory is that the Jedi master would return as a Force Ghost, Obi-Wan Kenobi-style.
Speaking to The Associated Press at the premiere of his other movie "Child's Play", the 67-year-old actor seemed to confirm the said speculation, while expressing his desire to retire his role as Luke after "Rise of Skywalker". "I sure hope so," he said when asked if "Rise of Skywalker" would be his last "Star Wars" movie.
"Well, because... I had closure in 'The Last Jedi'," he went on explaining. "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."
Yes, you read it right. Hamill himself said that his character Luke would appear as a Force Ghost. It's not clear if this plot detail should be kept under tight wraps, but the actor casually dropped the spoiler without any worry that he would get into trouble.
In "The Rise of Skywalker", the remnants of the Resistance face the First Order once again-while reckoning with the past and their own inner turmoil. Meanwhile, the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith reaches its climax, altogether bringing the Skywalker saga to a definitive end.
Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac reprise their roles as Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn and Poe Dameron, respectively. Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo and Billie Lourd are also among the returning stars, with Keri Russell being added in a new role and Billy Dee Williams returning as Lando Calrissian. J.J. Abrams directs the movie, which is set to be released on December 20.
