In an interview with ABC News, Luke Skywalker has expressed his loss of enthusiasm for Star Wars. It’s apparent that Mark Hamill doesn’t care about Star Wars anymore. While many wish for him to return in the finale of the Sequel Trilogy, Hamill is indifferent towards the subject. The loss of Carrie Fisher was devastating for the actor and has an enormous impact on his attitude.

“It really has tarnished my ability to enjoy it to its fullest,” Hamill said. “You were asking earlier, ‘Are you gonna come back?’ I don’t care anymore, on that level.

Because Han Solo is gone, Luke is gone. You just can’t get the band back together the way you wanted it to be, and it shouldn’t be that way. It is what it is. Rather than being sorry that we can’t have more of her, I’m just grateful that we had the time with her that we did.”

This eludes to Hamill’s apparent displeasure with the direction of the Sequel Trilogy after Disney took over the reigns. It was George Lucas and his pitch that got Hamill to return as Luke Skywalker. Luke was to train Leia in the ways of the Force and meet his final demise in Episode IX. Instead, Disney reduced him to a cameo in The Force Awakens, turned him into a grumpy old man in The Last Jedi, and only gave him one scene with his on-screen sister, Carrie Fisher. While publicly Hamill praised The Last Jedi, it was evident that he was not satisfied with the direction of his character and the fact that he never reunited with Han Solo and Leia Organa on-screen for one last hurrah.

This makes the turmoil within Lucasfilm even more evident. Darth Va — ahem, Kathleen Kenedy has lost control. The Last Jedi was a mess, Han Solo is likely to meet a similar fate, and even Rogue One was plagued with production issues.

Luke Skywalker needs to return for Episode IX in order to redeem the Trilogy. It’s up to JJ Abrams to convince him, or all may be lost.

It’s disgusting the way Mark Hamill and Luke Skywalker have been treated. The man deserves so much better, as does the character.
