Freaking Mark Hamill, making me cry first thing on a Sunday morning with his wonderful words about the Star Wars: Episode IX casting news.
Yesterday, the actor who brought the Cosmic Conflict program character Luke Skywalker to life tweeted about the news that Star Wars: The Last Jedi would not be the last time audiences saw the Jedi.
Today, he commented on the reveal that Carrie Fisher‘s Last Jedi appearance would not be her last, either. It was announced that by using previously unused footage of Fisher as Leia from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, she would be included in J.J. Abrams‘s Episode IX.
He posted this lovely (and tear-inducing) tweet this morning:
It’s bittersweet facing my final chapter without her-She is simply irreplaceable. I’m finding solace in the fact that she won’t BE replaced & would love the worldwide outpouring of affection from those who loved her when they heard the news.#CarrieOnForever pic.twitter.com/7ueMqBxQwa
