Mark Hamill recently sat with Jimmy Kimmel to talk Disney Executives and drop a new trailer. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the one we hoped for, it was for Season 2 of Knightfall.
Kimmel tried to ask about Episode IX, but the coy Luke Skywalker actor mostly deflected. He did mention his Luke Skywalker beard for Episode IX production. It seems he used the same fixed beard extensions for both projects. Due to an NDA, he never directly stated that it was for Star Wars filming. To confirm, he playfully turned to the audience and playfully winked.
I love driving the Disney executives crazy. Because what are they going to do, fire me? Ha!Mark Hamill
