You didn't think we'd go into the Thanksgiving holiday without at least one more story on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, did you? Thankfully, we do have one more Star Wars: The Force Awakens tidbit, which hints that we may be seeing more of the iconic Mark Hamill very soon. Earlier today, Omaze posted a new video with director J.J. Abrams, on behalf of their successful Force For Change campaign, which raised over $7 million for UNICEF. The end of this video teases that Mark Hamill may appear in a new video arriving sometime next week.
If you've been following Star Wars: The Force Awakens over the past few years, you have noticed a distinct lack of Mark Hamill's beloved character Luke Skywalker in any of the footage and photos released thus far. J.J. Abrams himself has teased that he has been purposefully holding back this Jedi warrior from the fans, which has only added fuel to the several rumors swirling about him. Naturally, none of these details have been confirmed yet, but they are still rather intriguing, nonetheless.
Some rumors claim that he has gone into exile following Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, with others claiming that his original lightsaber, which was found in the desert, sends new heroes Rey and Finn on their heroic journey. Producer Kathleen Kennedy did offer a tantalizing tidbit earlier this month, revealing that Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX all revolve around Skywalker's family. Some fans are convinced that we won't see Luke Skywalker until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, but we'll have to wait and see.
This video reveals that two lucky fans could win a trip to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere in either Los Angeles or London, by contributing at least $10 to the https://www.omaze.com/experiences/starwarspremiere?utm_source=social-youtube-omaze&utm_medium=video-anouncement&utm_content=8&utm_campaign=child_health-international&oa_h=27lg00|Omaze campaign. We also see numerous cast members such as Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o and many more, who reveal the charities they are supporting through this endeavor. The very end of the video shows J.J. Abrams saying, "But where's Mark Hamill?" as the video ends with a message saying "To be continued next week."
Could next week's Omaze video give us our first ever look at Luke Skywalker? It's possible, but unlikely, since none of the cast members featured in this video are seen in costume. Still, the cryptic nature of this video may mean there is some sort of surprise in store for fans dying to anything from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Take a look at the latest Omaze video below, and let us know if you think we could get our first glimpse at Luke Skywalker next week.
