Mark Hamill’s been back on Twitter talking Star Wars, and today he revealed a really interesting bit of Star Wars trivia, which I didn’t know before.
Hamill, who will be back as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, took to Twitter to reveal that baby Luke and baby Leia in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith was played by the same baby.
Mark then posted pictures of the boy who played baby Luke and Leia and revealed that he’s now at high school.
Here’s what Mark wrote in the tweet: “FUN FACTS: A) Aidan Barton played both Luke AND Leia in #StarWarsEpisodeIIIRevengeOfTheSith. B) He is the son of that film’s editor, Roger Barton. C) I have never met him. D) He is now in high school. E) YIKES!”

We also know that Mark will be returning as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but it’s looking like his role will be rather small.
Hopefully, he’ll play an important part in the movie and the rumours are that he’ll end up appearing to Kylo Ren and not Rey.
I think that would be really interesting if that were the case. I’d also love it if Anakin Skywalker were to return in this movie and talk to Kylo.
A scene with him and Anakin in which the Jedi-turned-Sith-Lord to reveal to him what it was really like being Darth Vader would be fascinating.
Hopefully, they’ll end up doing something genuinely interesting with the characters of Luke, Anakin, Leia and Kylo in The Rise of Skywalker since they are the last of the Skywalker line and it would be a nice way to end their family’s saga.
What do you think? Would you like to see Luke and Anakin get to talk to Kylo about the ways of the Force in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
