The return of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in “Star Wars: Episode 9” hasn’t been confirmed yet, but there is more evidence to suggest that the Jedi Master will return. In a resent post, Hamill has said that he is not in the US, and that he has to go back to work, suggesting that he is filming for the upcoming movie.

In a post on Twitter [see below] Hamill talked about the irony in the practice of not working on Labour Day in the US. He, however, is not in the US, and he ended the post by saying “I HAVE TO GO TO WORK!”

Readers should note that the filming of the upcoming movie is currently ongoing in England. Hamill could be there to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker. Although it remains to be seen how the character will be back after the events in “The Last Jedi,” the expected way for his return will be in form of a Force ghost to guide the next generation of Jedi or in a flash back sequence to explain the background of Rey (Daisy Ridley).

Few details about the upcoming film have surfaced recently. The most recently leaked photos from the production set suggest that there will be a new jungle planet featured in the film. The following part of the article contains spoilers.

As previously reported, leaked pictures from the production set at Black Park, UK suggest that there will be a jungle planet in the film. The iconic ship Millennium Falcon is also expected to be a part of the scenes that were filmed at this location. More details about the new locations and characters in the film will be revealed when the cast members start the promotion.

“Star Wars: Episode 9” is set to be released on Dec. 20, 2019 in the US.
