Mark Hamill might be a Star Wars legend, but he's also a huge troll, teasing the gullible and overly-eager Star Wars fanbase by posting all sorts of things that exacerbate all the wild and strange theories that come along with new Star Wars films.

Before the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Hamill rode on the fan theory that Luke Skywalker was going to pledge allegiance to the Dark Side all because of his position in the film's poster. He also pretended that John Boyega's Finn was related to Luke Skywalker, calling the actor his son time and time again on social media. He even trolled fans with his version of Star Wars: Episode IX's trailer, posting a picture of his own trailer truck for the film.

Now, as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker slowly approaches its release, Hamill proudly declares his insistence on teasing his Star Wars fans, telling Seth Meyers on the Late Night show that he doesn't really care whether or not Disney likes his little games with the fanbase (via The Hollywood Reporter).

"I love to tease the fans online," he continued. "It drives them crazy. I'm sure Disney is not happy about it, but what are they gonna do, fire me? It's too late."

The actor was invited on The Late Night show to help promote his new series Knightfall, and of course, Hamill couldn't help but mention the end of the Star Wars franchise. According to the actor, he decided to take on a role in Knightfall to challenge himself because he knew that "eventually Star Wars is going to go away" and that "Star Wars: Episode IX comes out in December so I only have eight months of trolling left."

Fans enjoy all the pranks that Hamill pulls though, knowing that the Star Wars legend's jokes come from a warm place.
