“Star Wars” fans cannot wait for “Episode 8” to finally hit the cinemas and are desperate for any news or spoilers regarding the new film. To whet their appetites even more, one of the movie's stars recently dished on some details about the highly anticipated installment.

Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the franchise, told Ryan Pearson of the Associated Press that he has actually known the name of the movie since last year. He was also briefed by writer-director Rian Johnson about what will happen in the movie, although personally, he’d rather not know because he’s afraid he might let something slip.

“I said, ‘Don’t tell me these things! I talk in my sleep!’ They have us so jacked up with paranoia over leaks,” Hamill said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “It’s funny, back when we were making the original, nobody cared.”

But Hamill did say one definite thing about the film. The actor teased that it will have a “real samurai” feel.

The new film will be released without one of its mainstays Carrie Fisher, who played Luke’s sister Princess/General Leia Organa. Fisher, 60, passed away on Dec. 27, 2016 following a cardiac arrest. Shortly after, her mother, Debbie Reynolds died of the same reason as well. They are survived by daughter and granddaughter Billie Lourd.

However, Fisher will still be a part of the eighth film in the franchise. Variety has reported that the actress wrapped shooting last July, so producers will not have to address her death until the ninth film, which will begin shooting in 2018.

On the other hand, her daughter, Lourd, will have a bigger role in Episode 8 as Lieutenant Connix. “Connix is back and better than ever,” she said, according to Screen Rant. Lourd added that she will have more than just one line compared to her cameo in the past.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will be released on Dec. 15.
