Luke Skywalker himself thinks it's pointless if the original trio can't be together anymore.
If you are waiting for Luke Skywalker to return as a Force ghost, Mark Hamill has doubts about that. The legendary Jedi master sacrificed himself in Star Wars: The Last Jedi to save the Resistance, saying farewell to the Star Wars universe in a re-creation of the iconic two-moon shot.
In ABC News' interview with the Hamill family, the actor offered his thoughts on Carrie Fisher's death and how the insurmountable loss affects him and Last Jedi:
It really has tarnished my ability to enjoy it to its fullest. 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.
Like Fisher and Harrison Ford, Hamill signed on to the sequel trilogy to reunite the original trio. Now, Star Wars isn't the same without all of them together. It's important to note that Hamill wanted to stress how impactful the loss of Fisher is to him and everyone else. The making of future Star Wars movies isn't comparable to the absence of Fisher and Ford, at least to him.
Of course, Hamill would reprise the role as a courtesy if J.J. Abrams asked him to. During previous interviews, Hamill expressed his interest in playing a Force ghost and even said "If you can't have fun making a Star Wars movie, you have serious problems." Even if he doesn't return, the new characters are strong enough to hold their ground in a galaxy far, far away.
