Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill has added his own personal insight into how Luke really died at the end of Star Wars: The Last Jedi - and according to the actor, it's not so simple as Luke being embraced by the Force.

According to Hamill, Luke Skywalker effectively "overdosed" on the Force when he projected himself all the way to Crait to confront Kylo Ren.

"The Force killed Luke. You have to acknowledge the irony in his fate," Hamill tweeted. "Almost like an addict that kicked his habit cold-turkey, remained clean for decades, only to re-use just once & then, tragically, overdoses."

Hamill also recently confirmed that, despite Luke's apparent death, he'll appear in Star Wars: Episode IXtweeting "I'm in it," while refusing to comment further.

The still untitled Star Wars: Episode IX is due out in theaters December 20, 2019.
