Star Wars’ Mark Hamill Believes Luke Skywalker Is No Longer Necessary

Mark Hamill’s want to maneuver previous Luke was definitely helped alongside by Rian Johnson, who wrote a curmudgeonly, but touchingly poetic terminus for the Tatooine-born protagonist in “Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi.” Luke finally sacrifices his corporeal kind à la Obi-Wan Kenobi — though, in doing so, he teaches his one-time pupil, Kylo Ren, and new pupil Rey, decidedly completely different classes.

Of course, demise just isn’t the top for the Jedi within the “Star Wars” universe. Obi-Wan turned up as a Force ghost in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” Yoda did likewise in “Return of the Jedi” and “The Last Jedi,” and Luke made a spectral go to within the misbegotten “The Rise of Skywalker.” Hamill has additionally contributed a few de-aged cameos in “The Mandalorian” and “The Book of Fett,” however that is in all probability the final we have seen of Luke.

As Hamill informed CBS Sunday Morning:

“Well, you never say never, but I just don’t see any reason to. Let me put it that way: I mean, they have so many stories to tell, they don’t need Luke anymore. I had my time, and that’s good. But that’s enough.”
