An active and eccentric tweeter, Hamill threw out a number of hashtags to go along with that tidbit, notably #W8ForVIII and #Rogue1Sooner, referring to director Gareth Edwards' "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," which flies into theaters on Dec. 16.
"Episode VIII's" wrap date falls on the Friday of Comic-Con International; Hamill has already said he's not attending, and finishing up filming that week likely rules out the rest of the cast as well. A surprise appearance, however, could create another memorable panel.
