However, it seems as though George Lucas would have made similarly massive decisions if he'd made the sequel trilogy.

Luke Skywalker is no longer the optimistic Jedi he was once when he was thirty years ago Now he's just a bitter old man living out his days on a deserted island.

However, in an interview with IGN, Hamill revealed that Lucas meant to kill off Luke at the end of "Episode IX" after he had trained his twin sister General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) the ways of the Force. Interestingly, Mark Hamill has revealed that things would have worked differently for Luke and his sister Leia Organa if George Lucas was still in charge in Episode IX.

He said: "I happen to know that George didn't kill Luke until the end of [Episode] IX, after he trained Leia. Which is another thread that was never played upon [in The Last Jedi]".

It's unclear when exactly Lucas was considering this conclusion for Luke, as the franchise creator's plans for future Star Wars films varied throughout his career. We did, however, see her use the Force to save her own life in the film.

In 1999, Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz dished up some seriously juicy details on Lucas' plans for the nine movies as they were laid out before 1980.

A piece of fun movie trivia that many fans will be aware of is that Luke Skywalker's original surname was Starkiller - a name that would later be used in a video game for another Star Wars protagonist. The actor doesn't say.

As for the chances of Luke returning for Episode IX in some form, such as a Force ghost, it looks unlikely as Hamill admitted: "No-one's really talked to me about it".

The new Star Wars movie from Lucasfilm and the Walt Disney Company stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata.
