Mark Hamill Compares Using the Force to ‘an Addict That Kicked His Habit’

”You have to acknowledge the irony in his fate,“ the ”Star Wars“ actor tweeted

Mark Hamill gave an interesting take on Twitter regarding Luke Skywalker in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Hamill shared a panel from “The Last Jedi” comic adaptation of Rian Johnson’s film on Twitter and compared what happened to Luke not unlike what happens to an addict who has relapsed.

“THE FORCE KILLED LUKE. You have to acknowledge the irony in his fate,” Hamill tweeted. “Almost like an addict that kicked his habit cold turkey, remained clean for decades, only to re-use just once & then, tragically, overdoses.”


Hamill previously expressed his doubts and creative differences about Luke’s trajectory in “The Last Jedi,” only to walk back those comments. And he even jokingly teased that perhaps Luke isn’t actually dead, but is really just living in a nudist colony somewhere.

“I refuse to believe that he’s gone,” Hamill told the BBC during the Oscar Wilde Awards. “My theory is he just teleported to somewhere else and left his robe behind. He teleported to a nudist colony, that’s what I’m hoping.”
