Ever since the eighth installment in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, opened in movie theaters in 2017, fans have wondered when the trailer for the ninth and final installment was going to drop.
Many have taken to Twitter to ask the franchise's original star, Mark Hamill. On Saturday, Hamill decided to oblige... sort of.
People keep asking me over & over & over again- "When will they release the #EpisodeIX trailer?" A) I don't know. B… https://t.co/nyfCh2d5r0— Mark Hamill (@Mark Hamill)1552758234.0
Unfortunately, he obliged with an epic dad joke. Yes. He showed us a Star Wars trailer. His trailer to be exact.
This is expert level trolling. The final installment in the "Skywalker Saga" is set to hit theaters in December of this year.
Many hope that the trailer will drop around April 11th, which is the beginning of the Star Wars Celebration Convention. At this convention, Disney also plans to unveil a detailed look at the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge ride that is going to be rolled out in Disney parks starting in May.
People were unamused by Hamill's troll.
