When George Lucas sold off his Star Wars empire to Disney in 2012, he also handed over the scripts and plans for future films.

But, as Lucas previously revealed, Disney opted not to follow his vision, and instead, created their own story.

In a recent interview with IGN, actor Mark Hamill (who plays Luke Skywalker) revealed that he and Lucas had previously discussed his plan for Luke after Return of the Jedi… and it was much different.

“I happen to know that George didn’t kill Luke until the end of [episode] nine after he trained Leia,” he explained. “Which is another thread that was never played upon [in The Last Jedi].”

When asked if he would appear in yet-to-be-named Episode IX, which is being co-written and directed by J.J. Abrams, Hamill responded: “No one’s really talked to me about it.”

Star Wars: Episode IX is slated for December 20, 2019.
