Twitter has gone into meltdown after the Star Wars actor shared this seemingly innocent clip of him shaving his beard off:

 

“Haven’t seen my chin since May ’15, so #FarewellFacialFur & #ByeByeBeard (at least til #EpisodeIX) @popculturequest” 

AT LEAST TIL EPISODE IX!? This surely means Luke Skywalker will not only survive Episode 8, but return for the ninth film.

Assuming he’s not playing naughty Hamill-ish tricks on us of course… which he has done before.
