Mark Hamill claims he has no idea what to expect from JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars Episode IX:
That includes whether his character, Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, will actually be in the film at all. Will he be watching from the sidelines when it’s finally released in 2019? “We haven’t really discussed it, so it’s all in JJ’s hands,” Hamill toldwhen asked if he’d be back.
“But you know, there’s a certain sense of closure for me. JJ gave me one of the most spectacular entrances, certainly of my career, maybe in all of film history. I don’t know if anybody’s been talked about for two hours and then shows up for 30 seconds before the end credits roll.”
Hamill reckons there are some interesting new directions for Star Wars to go in. “Well I thought, if he’s a Force Ghost I’d love to see him used in a way that has not been done before,” Hamill said. “I mean let’s use the word ghost! That implies that it’s frightening.”
Sadly, Hamill stopped himself from giving away any more specifics at that point, opting to save his spooky Luke ideas for JJ Abrams’ ears only.
“What if he… even in some other form, I think it’d be funny… well, I don’t want to give it away,” he said.
“I do have ideas; most of them are so terrible that they don’t consider them at all! But like I say, I don’t know if I am going to be back,” he concluded.
“One of the things that really informs this movie is that line, ‘Forget the past; kill it if you have to.’ And so far they’re doing a really great job.”
