Luke Skywalker died in Star Wars: The Last Jedi after helping the rebels overcome remnants of the Empire one last time.
Mark Hamill reprised his role for a surprise cameo in The Mandalorian’s season 2 finale. Luke might have died, but
A leak a few weeks ago suggested that an actor who has been fan-casted as young Luke is in the cards to play the iconic Jedi in future Star Wars shows and movies. We’re referring to Sebastian Stan, star of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. But Stan has now denied rumors that he will become a master of the Force in future
Stan is widely known for his portrayal of Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier in Marvel’s Captain America and Avengers movies. His character’s journey is far from being complete, although The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will push his story forward. But we’ve yet to see Bucky truly redeem himself, and he might not accomplish that in a TV show. We’re just speculating, but Marvel boss Kevin Feige said that Disney+ shows aren’t mandatory to understand the bigger MCU picture. So we’d expect Bucky’s arc to be wrapped up in a future movie.
It’s unclear how long Stan will continue to appear in MCU films and whether sharing him between Marvel and Lucasfilm is even feasible. The actor appeared on Good Morning America where he addressed the Star Wars rumors. The hosts asked him about the Skywalker leaks, saying that Hamill himself already tweeted his support for Stan.

“If Mark Hamill calls me personally to tell me that he feels inclined to share this role with me, then I’ll believe it,” Stan joked, adding that he won’t believe it until then. That’s the answer we’d expect from any actor rumored for a massive role. Nothing is official until the studio is ready to announce it.
