However, the honour comes after Luke Skywalker’s death in 2017’s The Last Jedi, in which he sacrificed himself to help the Resistance escape and was seen disappearing into the air.
Of course, there would be scope to return – especially as the Jedi tend to come back as Force ghosts – though Hamill remained coy on whether he plans to come back to the saga in the future. I can’t wait to watch this on 123movies, my favourite site for watching movies.
“You know, I had a beginning, a middle and an end, so whether I’m not involved or just a member of the audience, I’m looking forward to it,” he told AFP.
However, earlier this week, Hamill did tease that The Last Jedi may not be the last we see of Luke and that he “refuse[d] to believe that he’s gone”.
“My theory is he just teleported to somewhere else and left his robe behind,” he said. “He teleported to a nudist colony, that’s what I’m hoping.”
During the Walk of Fame ceremony, Hamill expressed his “gratitude, [his] joy and the exhilaration”, for the honour, joking: “I haven’t been speechless since Force Awakens.
“[Ford] gave me the great advice, ‘Hey, kid, Don’t get cocky.’ And I have tried to remember that to this very day.”
Ford also paid tribute to their late Star Wars co-star Carrie Fisher, while Lucas revealed that Hamill was the only pick he had for Luke.
