One of the most controversial things about Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the fact that Luke Skywalker died at the end of the movie in a fashion that some people didn't like.

Well now Mark Hamill himself has confirmed that it was The Force that killed off Luke Skywalker at the end of the movie.

Mark Hamill responded to Luke Skywalker's death in the last movie via his official Twitter account. You can see his posted down below.

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

This is probably full confirmation that Luke Skywalker is truly dead and won't be magically resurrected in Star Wars: Episode IX. The only way he will appear in the next movie will be as a Force Ghost. This is similar to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda who previously appeared as Force Ghosts to guide Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Mark Hamill is confirmed to star in Star Wars: Episode IX so fans still get a chance to see him one last time.

Episode IX is expected to be the last ever Star Wars movie that focuses on the main Skywalker family timeline.

Star Wars: Episode IX releases in North America on December 20th, 2019. The movie will be written and directed by JJ Abrams who previously worked on the 2015 release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
