WARNING SPOILER AHEAD
As would be expected, a few big characters died in Star Wars The Last Jedi.
One of which fans were wondering about happened too, as Luke Skywalker finally kicked the bucket.
Now director and writer Johnson as revealed why The Last Jedi met his end now rather than in Episode IX.
The actor said: “I’m just still holding on to the line, ‘See you around, kid.’
Hamill is of course referring to the moment his projection on Crait disappeared in front of Kylo Ren.
The star added: “I can be in Episode IX! I might consider catering the film just so I can hang out.”
Star Wars Episode IX will be released in UK cinemas on December 20, 2019.
