Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) Re-Growing Beard Signals Return In “Star Wars VIII”

mark-hamill-bearded-152095In an announcement that is sure to get all Star Wars fans buzzing, Mark Hamill has announced on Twitter that he has gone back to growing his beard that he wore for Star Wars: The Force Awakens while playing a much older Luke Skywalker. is reporting that the second movie in the new trilogy, written and directed by Rian Johnson, has already done some preliminary shooting in Ireland, and should be hitting full principal photography soon (likely after the promotional blitz for, and release of, The Force Awakens).

The actor, who plays Luke Skywalker in the franchise, tweeted that he started regrowing his beard “just in time” for the film, after shooting his second episode of The Flash. In that episode, his elder Trickster will team-up with other Rogues including Weather Wizard and Captain Cold.

Hamill – and more pointedly Luke’s position in the new trilogy has been one of the largest mysteries as The Force Awakens races to theaters December 18, 2015. The character has only appeared (probably) in one teaser trailer, hooded and with his metal hand, and has appeared in zero posters, as well, prompting copious speculation about his appearance, allegiance, and even the possibility that Luke dies in the upcoming movie. However, with Hamill returning for the 8th film suggests that we do get Luke back in some capacity or another, either as a living Jedi, or even possibly as a Force ghost, much like Obi-Wan Kenobi.

What do you think? Is this an indication that Luke will live? Do you feel that his character needs to die in the upcoming film?
