Mark Hamill would be fine if they recast Luke Skywalker with an age-appropriate actor instead of using de-aging/deep-fake.

Before Mark Hamill made his return as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the last time we saw the character was in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Lucasfilm is exploring the decades-long history between these two films. We’ve seen bits and pieces of that story play out in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett with a digital/deep-fake Luke Skywalker, but Mark Hamill told Esquire that it would be fine if they just recast the character with someone age-appropriate.

People say, ‘Oh, now you’re going to be able to do a whole series of Luke post-Return of the Jedi.’ I said, ‘I don’t think so,’” Mark Hamill said. “First of all, they don’t need to tell those stories, but if they do, they could get an age-appropriate actor.” It would certainly cut down on costs, as Hamill added that the digital Luke Skywalker “can’t be cheap.

When Mark Hamill first read the script of Star War: The Last Jedi he thought “Ok well, that’s all for me.“. He then began “disengaging” from something that had been a part of his life. But he hadn’t expected to play the role again until The Mandalorian called. Mark Hamill may return to the role of Luke Skywalker in one of the new Star War films, which takes place 15 years after The Rise of Skywalker, as Rey (Daisy Ridley), tries to rebuild the Jedi Order. However, Hamill won’t confirm anything. “One thing you learn working for Lucasfilm: everything is confidential,” Hamill said. “Everything’s confidential. If I was involved, I would not be able tell you. If I wasn’t involved, I couldn’t tell you. We’ll all find out together, I guess. We’ll all find out together, I guess.Mark Hamill can currently be seen starring alongside Bert Kreischer in The Machine
