The return of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in “Star Wars: Episode 9” is something that the fans are eagerly waiting to see. There are many theories about how the character will return, and now Hamill himself has revealed how his character will be back in the film.

There are essentially three ways for Luke to return in the upcoming film. He could be back in a flashback sequence, be a part of a vision, or he could be back as a Force Ghost. Some fans who want to see the character as being still alive have suggested even wilder theories like the Jedi was transported to another realm after the events in “The Last Jedi,” which would allow him to live on.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Hamill was asked if the upcoming film will be his last for the “Star Wars” franchise. The actor said that he hopes it is. When asked why he felt that way, he said that he had closure in “The Last Jedi,” and he then went on to reveal that the only reason why he is coming back is because the franchise allows a Jedi to come back as a Force Ghost.

Hamill has confirmed that Luke will return as a Force Ghost in “Star Wars: Episode 9,” which makes his character very much like his master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luke’s job in the upcoming film will be to guide Rey (Daisy Ridley) in her journey to become a Jedi.

Luke Skywalker was the protagonist in the original trilogy. Hamill recently shared an old picture of him on the set of what appears to be the first “Star Wars” movie, and compared it with a scene from the upcoming JJ Abrams film.

Some of the fans were disappointed with the way things turned out in “The Last Jedi.” It remains to be seen how the fans will react to the upcoming film. Cast member Keri Russell appears to be happy with the script, and she told Associated Press that she cried after reading it.

“Star Wars: Episode 9” will be released on Dec. 20. The plot will be about the Resistance’s final battle against the First order.
