Mark Hamill played the iconic young hero Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, then came back for the sequel trilogy as an aged Jedi master. And even though Luke died in The Last Jedi, that doesn't mean the character is gone- he played a Force ghost in The Rise of Skywalker. But wait! Even the end of the Skywalker Saga didn't mean the end for Luke. With the various TV shows focusing on different parts of the Star Wars timeline, Luke was brought back for an appearance as his younger self in The Mandalorian, and then in The Book of Boba Fett. Is Luke Skywalker eternal? Is he even necessary?
Not according to Hamill. The actor is fine with Luke never appearing in another Star Wars story. Hamill is 71 years old now, and it has to be jarring for him to see his image brought back de-aged with special effects and his voice recreated with artificial intelligence. Besides, there are plenty of other Star Wars stories waiting to be told that don't involve Luke. Read what Hamill says about the future of Luke Skywalker at Den of Geek.
