New Looks At ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Cast Plus Mark Hamill Reveals Potential Spoiler

New Looks At 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Cast Plus Mark Hamill Reveals Potential Spoiler

The excitement that is surrounding “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is equally matched by anxiety. Most people don’t want to know one morsel of what may or may not happen in the upcoming sequel, and even the run of TV spots with glances of new footage are a source of frustration. But has Mark Hamill himself let a major cat out of the bag?

The actor, who has previously stated “I’m not even authorized to tell you I’m in ‘Episode VII,’ ” hit Twitter last night with what some considered a bombshell.

**SPOILERS AHEAD** The actor revealed: “Last shaved on 10/22 after final day of my 2nd #TheFlash (which airs 12/8 #XmasTrix), just in time for Ep VIII-whew!” So yes, it would seem the actor will be back in some form following ‘The Force Awakens.’ But was there any doubt? In fact, the sequels themselves were reworked to bring in Han Solo, Leia and more, and not to get too cynical, but I can’t imagine Disney and Lucasfilm not utilizing their biggest licensing opportunities in the films, while they still can. 

Meanwhile, Making Star Wars have stumbled upon a handful of plot details which you probably don’t want to know. But if you do, click over there to find out more. **SPOILERS END**

Lastly, Empire has unveiled their “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” covers which you can check out below (along with a new look at Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma). More officially sanctioned reveals from the issue are likely coming soon.
