Star Wars IX: Mark Hamill Would Want to Play a 'Frightening' Force Ghost

Though Luke Skywalker may have died in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a lot of fans still want Mark Hamill to come back for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode IX. As it turns out, Hamill wants to come back too, and he wants to put a special spin on his version of a Force Ghost.

Talking to Radio Times, Hamill shares:

"Well I thought, if he's a Force Ghost I'd love to see him used in a way that hasn't been done before. I mean let's use the word ghost! That implies that it's frightening. What if he… even in some other form, I think it'd be funny… well, I don't want to give it away. 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."

Seeing that Carrie Fisher is gone, a lot of people are hoping that an appearance from Luke Skywalker will try to fill the hole when it comes to legacy characters in the sequel trilogy. A lot of fans already wanted Luke to come back, but with Leia gone, his role in the sequel will have to be more substantial.

Then again, we don't know what J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio have planned for Episode IX. Hopefully it will be something more risky and original as compared to the Abrams' work with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Star Wars Episode IX is slated to come out Dec. 20, 2019.
