    After Star Wars: The Last Jedi fundamentally changed the course of the franchise going forward, Mark Hamill has been a chatterbox about the things he likes about the movie and what parts he had reservations about. In an interview with GamesRadar, Hamill expresses fondness toward the epilogue with the Force-sensitive stable boy, and he also clarifies some details on some earlier comments he made regarding whether or not he'll return for Star Wars Episode IX and what surprised him about Supreme Leader Snoke.





    First up are more of Hamill's thoughts on The Last Jedi, now that the film's on Blu-Ray and he's seen it a few times. While there have been no shortages of criticisms for the film, which (online, at least) is probably the most heated Star Wars movie to talk about online since the days when The Phantom Menace hit theaters, one that Hamill personally didn't understand is why so many people were upset that Supreme Leader Snoke got iced without there being real exposition about who he was:

    In some respects, it's more interesting to see where the story goes with Kylo Ren taking up the mantle of Supreme Leader, and with the Emperor-Disciple dynamic destroyed in the film, Episode IX arguably has more directions that it can go in.

    Hamill also expressed a particular fondness for the final scene of the movie, which more or less encapsulates Luke's ultimate victory in The Last Jedi: not only was he able to give the Galaxy hope once again, but he was also able to ensure that the next generation of Jedi will be able to have someone to look up to:

    The scene itself, I feel, is one of the most notable subtle moments in the Star Wars series, and to me it added a lot more to the ending than it would have if the movie just ended with the Millennium Falcon flying off to an uncertain - though hopeful - future. Because with this one kid, in this one, relatively-insignificant moment, we know that the Jedi will never die.

    Lastly, there was the matter of a possible return as Luke in Star Wars Episode IX, which Hamill is still weighing out his options on. Playing off of earlier comments he made to ABC, Hamill explained that he's perfectly fine if the story doesn't need Luke going forward, knowing that the heroes of the Original Trilogy have all passed on by the time the trilogy-capper will take place:

    Again, it's worth noting that Hamill is likely on contract for three Star Wars movies when he signed on for the Sequel Trilogy and it's likely that he'll at least appear in a cameo role in Episode IX. Given that J. J. Abrams really, really wanted to do dialogue for the character, that the ending of the film so perfectly sets him up for a ghostly return, and that there's still a chance that Luke could use the Force to turn the tide of the final battle from beyond, I honestly think that there's no way that Disney will leave the one actor of the original trio that could return out of the film.



    A more pragmatic part of me thinks it's entirely possible that Hamill might be negotiating for a bigger paycheck for the closing chapter of the Skywalker Saga. But we'll likely find out one way or another in a few months, when cast list for Episode IX has been revealed. (He still hasn't shaved that contractually-obligated beard that he doesn't like all that much, so fingers crossed!)

    I thought the point of that scene was pretty obvious. Snoke blatantly said “The seed of the Jedi Order lives. As long as it does, hope lives in the galaxy.” Snoke, the person, wasn’t just defeated, his goal was too. Broomboy is a symbol of the hope that still lives because the Jedi still live. The bad guys failed.

    Until 60 ABY when Rey's niece falls to the Dark Side via Lord Eknos (Secretly Rey herself), and destroy Rey's new new Jedi.
    And the New Resistance, headed by General Poe, is fighting the Second Cult of Olyer, headed by Grand Admiral Finn himself.
    Luke Skywalker can have a cameo in Star Wars, episode XI, as a Force Ghost.
