Star Wars: Mark Hamill Takes a Stand Against Episode IX Spoilers

Mark Hamill in The Last Jedi

Fandom may be slavering like a Hutt at dinnertime for even a morsel of Star Wars: Episode IX news, but Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, has made it clear he won’t be the one dropping any breadcrumbs.

The actor posted to Twitter, explaining his No Spoilers policy, writing:

“I mention keeping my #StarWars opinions to myself & what happens? It triggers an avalanche of questions about the next one! All can is yes, I'm in it. Other than that, just consider it: EPISODE NEIN COMMENT.”

Could this Teutonic punnery itself be a spoiler? Will everyone in a galaxy far, far away be speaking German next time we see them? Does his use of the word “avalanche” hint at a return to Hoth in Episode IX?

Almost certainly not, no -- but, if his Twitter warning stands, this is the last Hamill will have to say about the film for quite some time.
