Despite what you've been hearing on Twitter this weekend, Mark Hamill insists that he definitely knew about that emotional final scene for Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

As those who've seen the film are aware, Luke passed into another plane of Force existence at the climax of director Rian Johnson's sequel, following his showdown with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) on Crait.

It was a controversial moment for long-time fans of the franchise, but that doesn't mean it was some sort of plot from Disney and Lucasfilm to settle a score with Mark Hamill.

When a fan raised the rumour directly to Hamill on Twitter, the legendary Star Wars cast member couldn't help but chuckle at the latest hysteria from some angry fans.

"Amazing! Every word in that tweet is WRONG," he insisted. "No wonder they have ANON in their title. I'd want to remain anonymous if I were spewing complete BS, too. #Disney angered?

"Final scene a surprise to me? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!! #WhattaLoadaSITH"

While Hamill has debunked this latest claim, he has apologised to both Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm for publicly criticising their portrayal of Luke in The Last Jedi.

"I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public," Hamill wrote on Twitter. "Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private.

"All I wanted was to make good movie. I got more than that- @rianjohnson made an all-time GREAT one! #HumbledHamill."
