Mark Hamill Debunks Popular Star Wars 8 Dark Side Theory
Will Disney and Lucasfilm really let Luke Skywalker go to the Dark Side in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Not if Mark Hamill has anything to say about it. While there has been a popular fan theory floating around ever since the movie began production that Luke has turned evil, the iconic actor assures fans this isn't true. Though, this old Master Jedi isn't quite right in the head.

The trailers and other promotional material for Star Wars 8 have heavily teased that Luke could be edging towards a place at Snoke's side as he slips over to the dark side. Is Skywalker a bad guy? 'No,' declares Hamill, though the actor wasn't initially happy with the route his iconic character takes in this latest sequel. In a recent interview direct from Disney, Hamill has decided to clarify some of the misinformation and wrong ideas fans have about the movie.
