Will “Star Wars 8” unveil Luke Skywalker’s biggest secret? Hints about the return of the main hero from the original trilogy made headlines early on. No less than Daisy Ridley teased details about his comeback.

Hamill greeted John Boyega a happy birthday via Twitter, HollywoodLife reported. Boyega will play Finn again in “Star Wars 8”.

If his birthday tweet to Boyega wasn’t enough, Hamill already had tongues wagging about his character’s sexuality. In an interview with The Sun, Hamill suggested that Skywalker might be gay.
The actor made this insinuation following JJ Abrams statement about having a gay character in the “Star Wars” franchise.
Hamill told The Sun, “I just read online that JJ is very much open to that. In the old days you would get fan mail.”
He added, ““But now fans are writing and ask all these questions, ‘I’m bullied in school… I’m afraid to come out’. They say to me, ‘Could Luke be gay?’ I’d say it is meant to be interpreted by the viewer.
“If you think Luke is gay, of course he is. You should not be ashamed of it. Judge Luke by his character, not by who he loves.”
The website noted that Skywalker’s character might have sworn off women for good. The Sun recalled that his only kissing scene throughout the “Star Wars” franchise was with Princess Leia. Unfortunately, she turned out to be his sister.
