As the beard grows: Mark Hamill is likely growing his beard back for Star Wars: Episode VIII!

I love the ridiculousness of covering a man’s beard. But hey, this is Luke Skywalker’s beard, man!

The Luke Skywalker actor tweeted: 

It sounds like he shaved for The Flash television series and now the time to grow the majestic beard returns. The rumor is that filming on Star Wars: Episode VIII officially begins sometime in January, so it sounds like he’ll take two months to grow it back. I wonder if he has to grow it a little bit longer than is needed so they can style it accordingly as well? Look for Luke Skywalker beard trimmings to hit eBay just in time for the holiday season!

Anyways, it is exciting news because it means Star Wars: Episode VIII is near. I still can’t believe they made a VII.
