Mark Hamill is giving fans the Star Wars Episode 9 trailer they've been waiting for... just not the one they thought.

Even though the long-anticipated Star Wars: Episode 9 isn't out until December, the title and first trailer might debut during Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on April 12

But on Saturday, Star Wars actor Mark Hamill went ahead and tweeted the first Star Wars 9 movie trailer ... sort of.

Hamill posted a photo of himself posing in his trailer on the set, pointing to a sign that says Master Hamster in the window. 

For those curious about the Master Hamster reference, Hamill fans are called Hamsters, so that would make Hamill the Master Hamster.

"People keep asking me over & over & over again - 'When will they release the #EpisodeIX trailer?'" Hamill tweeted. "A) I don't know. B) Until they do, just be satisfied with this exclusive look at my own personal #StarWars trailer. #PatiencePadawans #IXWillBeFineAllInGoodTime"

That is an actual trailer he posted a photo of. And since it's on the Star Wars set when they were filming, technically Hamill did share the first Star Wars: Episode 9 trailer on Twitter. 

This isn't the first time Hamill has teased fans with cryptic tweets hinting at upcoming Star Wars movie title and plot points, but it may be one of the funniest.

Star Wars: Episode 9 premieres Dec. 19 in the UK and Dec. 20 in the US and Australia.
