Even after his death, Luke Skywalker continues to find a way back Star Wars. It happened for the first time in 2019 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker when the dead Jedi Master returned as a Force Ghost.

“It’s not unusual to see yourself like that,” actor Mark Hamill he told Esquire about seeing a smaller version of it on Disney+ shows. Also, he added, “It won’t be cheap.”
Luke’s appearance on the two Disney+ shows was the first time that the character appeared for a long time between the events of Return of the Jedi and THe Rises. And since Star Wars mythology focuses on Luke’s actions during that time, in books like Shadow of the Sith and in the movie mode, Hamill admits that it is possible for the character to return.
“People say, ‘Oh, now you’re going to be able to do the whole Luke series after—Return of the Jedi.’ I said, ‘I don’t think so,’” Hamill said. “First of all, they don’t need to tell the stories, but if they do, they can find an age-appropriate actor.” The last part is very important because Lucasfilm has only created big roles where the age gap is big, like Leia and Luke. Obi-Wan Kenobi. If Hamill was okay with a young actor playing him, you’d think others would be too.
But that’s the past. As for the character’s future, after returning as a Force Ghost to Rey in The Rise of SkywalkerEsquire asked if he would return about Rey’s upcoming movie. “One thing you learn at Lucasfilm: everything is private,” Hamill said. “If I had been affected, I would not have told you.” And if I hadn’t been involved, I wouldn’t have told you. So, I don’t know. We’ll all get along, I think. “
