The last season of Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be airing this March 19, and the showrunners are planning some big things to send this version of the turtles off with a bang. News has it that Star Wars actor Mark Hamill will be guest-starring in the season. Bad News — he isn't voicing the Joker.

According to ComicBookMovie, Hamill will be voicing Kavaxas, some sort of magic-wielding dragon. He'll be playing the character in the premiere episode "Scroll of the Demodragon," and the character is said to appear in three more episodes after that.

Though Hamill has found some rejuvenated popularity with the new Star Wars trilogy, he's always been known for his voice work in animated shows — most especially Joker from Batman: The Animated Series. It's nice to see that he hasn't totally given up on voice acting yet.

Since its launch in 2012, Nickelodeon's CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has re-energized these iconic characters of this wildly popular franchise. Currently in its third season, the series is seen in over 170 countries and territories, and translated in over 50 languages. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows four mutant turtles—Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo—trained in the art of ninjutsu by their mutant rat sensei, Master Splinter, who teaches the turtles to battle evil from the New York City sewers.

Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premieres on Nickelodeon on March 19, but Mark Hamill returns as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Dec. 15.
