  • EW’s Cheat Sheet breaks down Star Wars Rise of Skywalker Easter eggs you might've missedMore

The Star Wars story is far from over, but Mark Hamill's involvement with the series is likely at an end. Hamill himself appeared to confirm that theory with a new thank you message to Star Wars fans that he posted on Twitter.

With a nod to Harrison Ford and the late, great Carrie Fisher, Hamill marveled at the success of Star Wars - a movie that, in the 1970s auteur era of serious film, didn't win George Lucas a lot of love from the studio system at first, until it lit up like a lightsaber with fans. He's arguably the face of the whole franchise; which, he pointed out, almost came out under a very different name. Back in 1976, when Carrie, Harrison and I were testing for our roles in what was then called The Adventures of Luke Starkiller, as taken from the Journal of the Whills, Saga I: The Star Wars, there's no way we could have known what an incredibly rich and imaginative set of adventures this obscure little space movie would launch, inspire eight more chapters to tell the entire Skywalker story'.
