Mark Hamill Confirms Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Theory About Luke Skywalker's Fate

One of the poignant scenes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi was undoubtedly the death of Luke Skywalker. Nevertheless, there have been several theories about Luke possibly Force-projecting himself to a new location. Not surprisingly, Mark Hamill has seen these theories and has gone out of his way to confirm a specific theory about what will happen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

One fan recently posted an image suggesting that Star Wars Episode IX will finally allow Luke to finish what he started in A New Hope. Hamill immediately picked up on the theory and "confirmed" it. Check out his tweet below.

"The theory that Luke didn't really die at the end of #EpisodeVIII, but simply Force-Projected to Tosche Station: CONFIRMED," Hamill wrote. He then added the hashtag #FinallyPickingUpThosePowerConverters.


It's certainly a hilarious take on what will happen in The Rise of Skywalker. However, it's important to note that Luke's adventure never would have started if he had insisted on getting those power converters from Tosche Station. If that had happened, we wouldn't have the Skywalker Saga in the first place.

Although it's unlikely that Luke just Force-projected himself back to Tosche Station in search of power converters, there is little doubt that the Jedi Master will still play a role in The Rise of Skywalker. After all, Hamill is still confirmed to appear in Episode IX. We're just not sure whether he will show up in flashback sequences or as a Force ghost.

Hamill will return as Luke Skywalker for what could be the last time in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which is still scheduled for release on December 20.
