Luke Skywalker compares the creation of 'Star Wars' to the development of Disney animated movies.
Mark Hamill opens up about the concepts and ideas within 'Star Wars' that made the film franchise so great and, indeed, so enduring. He is set to reprise his character of Luke Skywalker yet again in the forthcoming 'The Last Jedi' movie, and is rumoured to return for the subsequent 'Episode IX'.

The 65-year-old actor couldn't have had more respect for the way George Lucas, creator of 'Star Wars' and director of the original movie and the second trilogy, developed the scenes in the movie and described his storytelling as being almost primitive.

He went to see an early cut of the first trailer with the late Carrie Fisher.
Mark Hamill has for four decades now been a staple of the 'Star Wars' franchise, bringing his role as Luke Skywalker to fans for the first time in 'Episode IV: A New Hope' and still remaining with the series to-date.

After the release of The Force Awakens at the end of 2015, Disney and Lucas films didn't mess around delivering the general public its first announcement/teaser for The Last Jedi back at the start of 2016. Now, well over a year later, we finally get to see some proper footage from the upcoming movie.
Many of the key cast from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will feature in The Last Jedi including Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren who famously slaughtered his much-loved father in a face to face battle that made for one of the most pivotal scenes in the history of Star Wars.
As ever with new Star Wars releases, the scrip and the story outline is one of Hollywood's most closely guarded secrets and few official details have been released to the public. We do know that the story will pick up where The Force Awakens ended with Rey going off into a mountainous setting to hunt down Luke Skywalker in a bid to train with him and learn his knowledge.

Could we see one of the most shocking twists in 'Star Wars' history?
In four decades, the 'Star Wars' property has become one of the most popular on Earth. Now the most recognisable sci-fi franchise in existence, fans are gearing up for the release of the eighth movie in the episodic series - set to drop later this year - with the first teaser for the film dropping earlier this week.

Over the Easter weekend, the franchise is celebrating 40 years in Florida at the official Star Wars Celebration, with huge guest stars making an appearance over the course of the event. One of those stars is actor Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the series, and he's managed to send fans of the franchise into a frenzy with his latest comments.
Abrams believes Hamill's upcoming performance as Luke Skywalker in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' will win him an Oscar in 2018.
Former Star Wars director Jj Abrams has claimed that Mark Hamill’s role in the upcoming The Last Jedi later this year will be of such a standard that he’ll be in line for an Oscar this time next year, saying that he’d be “very upset” if Hamill was overlooked.
65 year old Hamill fleetingly reprised his career-defining role as Luke Skywalker in 2015’s The Force Awakens – quite literally, as he appeared for just a few seconds standing on a remote island in the film’s closing sequence - but it set to have a substantially bigger role in The Last Jedi, released in December 2017.

Appealing both to a new generation of viewers and fans of the series since the beginning, this 30-years-later sequel to 1983's Return of the Jedi is a thrilling adventure. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams has managed to capture the tone of the original trilogy while telling a story about young, vibrant new characters whose connection to the overall saga deepens intriguingly as events unfurl.
Over the past three decades, the Empire has regrouped, forming the First Order to crush the Old Republic for good. And the plucky Rebellion hasn't offered much resistance since leader Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) disappeared. The Empire's top henchman Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is searching for him just as diligently as the rebel leader General Leia (Carrie Fisher). But the real action is happening out of their grasp, as disaffected storm trooper Finn (John Boyega) teams up with rebel pilot Poe (Oscar Isaac) and then feisty scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) and expressive droid BB-8. Along the way, Han Solo and Chewbacca (Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew) find themselves back in the fray. And everyone is startled when there's a strong stirring in the force.
Abrams beautifully recreates the scruffy, clanky mechanical atmosphere of the original trilogy, infusing scenes with witty banter and John William's soaring score to throw us right back into that familiar galaxy. This includes the saga's main themes: the temptation of power, how true heroism is often accidental, and the tension between parents and children. Combine this with a plot that propels itself with a series of unexpected adventures and battles, all centred on the characters, and the film taps strongly into the teen in all of us.

The director has discussed the criticism the film has received for casting Boyega as a Stormtrooper.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens director Jj Abrams stopped by ‘The Howard Stern Show’ on Monday to talk about the much anticipated sequel. Speaking to the shock-jock, Abrams discussed criticisms over the casting of black actor John Boyega as a Stormtrooper, while also revealing why fans haven't seen Luke Skywalker in any of the film’s trailers yet.

Discussing those who have criticised the film for casting Boyega as a black stormtrooper, Abrams said: 'All I know is John Boyega is extraordinary in the new movie. I think the people who are complaining about that probably have bigger problems than there's a black stormtrooper.’
Daniel Fleetwood was granted a special screening of the new 'Star Wars' film last Thursday.
Daniel Fleetwood, a terminally ill Star Wars fan, who was granted his dying wish to see The Force Awakens film last week, has died. The 32 year old Texan, who had an aggressive form of cancer that had spread to 90% of his lungs, was granted the chance to see the film months before it hits cinemas, after the social media campaign #forcefordaniel went viral.
Terminally ill Star Wars fan Daniel Fleetwood has died, days after viewing The Force Awakens.
His wife Ashley, confirmed his death in a Facebook post on Tuesday, writing: “He passed in his sleep and in peace. He will always be my idol and my hero. Rest in peace my love. Daniel put up an amazing fight to the very end. He is now one with God and with the force.”
