Actor Mark Hamill may be reprising his Luke Skywalker role for as soon as this week.
"I'm not in the good ol' USA & tomorrow (wait for it...) I HAVE TO GO TO WORK!" Hamill wrote in the tweet.
While this isn't necessarily a confirmation that Hamill is on his way to England's Pinewood Studios to reprise his Skywalker role, it is worth noting that the J.J. Abrams-directed movie is entering its second month of filming and that Hamill is confirmed to appear in the movie in some form.
