Mark Hamill has responded to that Star Wars: The Last Jedi fan theory that Luke Skywalker is the villain.

Alongside the release of the new trailer, a new The Last Jedi poster showed Luke at the back of the poster, leading to a theory that linked all Star Wars posters with each one showing the movie's villain at the back.

Of course, we've been telling you for a while that Luke could be the real villain of The Last Jedi, and not Supreme Leader Snoke, but Hamill clearly feels the poster theory is one he needed to respond to.

"NEWS FLASH for all you 'villains looming at the back of posters' theorists: Luke was ALWAYS the villain! (from a certain point of view)," he wrote on Twitter, with both the poster meme and 'Luke as a radical' meme.


It's the latest in Hamill basically trolling Star Wars fans after he jokingly called John Boyega "son" earlier this year and talked about 'spoilers'.

A new TV spot landed after the trailer featuring more dialogue from Luke Skywalker, including potentially his first line to Rey (Daisy Ridley) when we catch up with them at the start of the movie.

Away from The Last Jedi, Ron Howard has also confirmed this week that the Han Solo spin-off movie would be, unsurprisingly, called Solo: A Star Wars Story.
