“Mark Hamill Hints at Possible Involvement in Upcoming New Jedi Order Film”
Earlier this year, Lucasfilm unveiled their plans for the future of Star Wars movies, including three films helmed by Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy, Dave Filoni, and James Mangold. Obaid-Chinoy’s film holds significant importance in the Star Wars canon, as Daisy Ridley is set to reprise her role as Rey Skywalker from the Sequel Trilogy. This revelation sparked speculation about the potential involvement of other iconic actors from the Star Wars franchise, including Mark Hamill, who portrayed Luke Skywalker. However, Hamill remains elusive about his participation.
In a recent interview with Esquire, Hamill disclosed, “One thing you learn working for Lucasfilm: everything is confidential. So, if I were involved, I wouldn’t be able to tell you. And if I were not involved, I wouldn’t be able to tell you. So, I don’t know. We’ll all find out together, I guess.”
As for the upcoming Star Wars movie, directed by Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy and previously attached to writers Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson, the project has seen some developments. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy provided an update, mentioning that the script has undergone changes and that Stephen Knight, known for his work on Peaky Blinders, has been brought on board for a rewrite. Kennedy mentioned that they have been working on the film for a few years and are getting closer to finalizing the script.
Kennedy elaborated, “There’s never a time where something is just instantly suggested. It’s such an evolution of conversations that we have all the time, and we knew coming off of The Rise of Skywalker that we needed to take that further. We just didn’t know how far out; we didn’t know exactly what the story might be – but now we have a much better idea.”
While the details surrounding Mark Hamill’s involvement in the new Jedi Order film remain uncertain, his enigmatic response fuels speculation about a potential return to the Star Wars universe. As fans eagerly await further updates, only time will reveal the truth behind Hamill’s connection to the upcoming Star Wars installment.
