Mark Hamill tweeted out a video this morning of his beard getting shaved, where he also confirmed that Luke Skywalker will be back in Star Wars: Episode IX. We of course already knew that Luke will be in Star Wars: Episode VIII, but now we know he is in it for the long haul. I never really thought that Luke would die in VIII anyway, especially knowing that a major original trilogy character was killed off in The Force Awakens, that being Han Solo of course. Another thing to note is that Mark is shaving his beard, most likely since he is hosting his new show “Pop Culture Quest“. He’ll probably grow the beard back up late next year before Episode IX filming actually begins.
