Star Wars 9: [SPOILER] set to return after The Last Jedi DEATH? Actor SPEAKS OUT

WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD

Having only cameoed in Star Wars The Force Awakens, Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker was front and centre of The Last Jedi.

However at the film’s conclusion, having tricked Kylo Ren, he died and presumably became one with the Force.

After all, Luke disappeared, leaving just his cloak like Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope.

Surely, then, The Last Jedi will return as a Force ghost in Episode IX?

Johnson said: “I had huge hesitance. I was terrified. It was a growing sense of dread when I realised this was going to make sense in that chapter.

“I think the hero’s journey of Luke Skywalker concluded in Return of the Jedi. This [trilogy] is the hero’s journey of Rey, and Finn, and Poe. 

“The [ongoing] story of Luke is one that has to play in tandem with that of Rey.”

Episode IX will be released in UK cinemas on December 20, 2019.
