Fans will know that 2015’s Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens ended with a moving scene of Rey finding Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, on a rocky outcrop in the middle of a forbidding ocean.
Luke is a powerful Jedi who disappeared many years earlier and she is intent on persuading him to join the Resistance and help her grow her burgeoning Jedi powers.

Speaking to Comicbook.com last month, he said: ‘Everyone says, “Oh, it must be so fun coming back to Star Wars.”
