The Official Star Wars Website Lists The Top 10 Luke Quotes...

… and Mark Hamill appends an 11th quote on Twitter…

Mark Hamill Tweet

Click to see original tweet

It seems Mark is still not all too happy about the extent of his role and number of lines in The Force Awakens, even after all those years. Chances are he will talk more in The Rise of Skywalker again, being dead is barely an inconvenience for a Jedi, after all. And who knows, maybe the movie will even add another timeless Luke Skywalker quote. What could it be? “Rey, you are my aunt?!?! That’s not true! That’s impossible!”? “Don’t call me Shirley!”? or “If only I had picked up those power converters at Tosche Station!” What do you think could be a great Luke quote for Episode IX? Leave your constructive thoughts and helpful suggestions (JJ is still editing the movie, maybe he needs some inspiration for last second pick up shoots!) in the comments! Let’s have some fun!

Mark Hamill Believes Star Wars Fatigue May Be Real

Mark Hamill was a guest on the Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast the other day and during the podcast he shared his thoughts about the current state of the Star Wars franchise. When asked if audiences may be tiring of Star Wars, this is what he replied:

“Yes,” Hamill said. “I’m not gonna tell them how to run their business, but is there a possibility of ‘Star Wars fatigue’? Yeah, I think there is. I’ve experienced it, to a certain degree. But they never listen to my ideas anyway, so who needs ’em?”

Perhaps Mark’s opinion on the current state of the franchise should worry Disney? Also, you cannot help but always feel a certain level of disappointment in Mark Hamill’s words when he speaks about Star Wars these days. And you can’t shake off the felling that Mark is not entirely convinced Disney is doing the right thing with Star Wars. So, what do you think? Is there Star Wars fatigue? I am not entirely sure there is, I think Star Wars merely needs fresh ideas, all new characters and movies that are not beholden to the OT era so much with rehashed ideas and nostalgia. Star Wars needs to move forward. Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Mark Hamill Vows Not To Talk About New Star Wars Movies

You certainly remember Mark Hamill’s remarks about The Last Jedi. How he was less than happy about the choices Rian Johnson made for the character of Luke Skywalker. Most famous is Mark Hamill’s remark that his character in The Last Jedi was not the Luke we know, but “Jake Skywalker”, someone else. Expect much less of these remarks leading up to Episode IX, however. In a recent interview Mark says that he vowed not to talk about the movies anymore, because it got him into trouble.

The State Of Mark Hamill's Beard And Hair

Mark Hamill posted a current photo of himself on Instagram. He was finally attending The Mousetrap play in London, which he originally meant to do back in 1976 when he was in London for A New Hope. But what is of note here is Mark Hamill’s look, it’s almost youthful. He is clean shaven and his hair is short with little grey in it.

So let the speculation begin… will Mark Hamill be de-aged for Episode IX and a flashback sequence? Do Force ghosts have barbers? Or did he get a new haircut and finally shaved his beard only after filming wrapped? The production in Pinewood has come to an end recently.

Mark Hamill Shaved His Beard!

Yes, it’s true. The beard is no more. Mark Hamill posted a photo of a new gift he received from Sideshow Collectibles (a Joker cane) on Twitter and in the photo you can see a clean shaven Mark (makes him look 20 years younger). Now, what could that mean? Flashback scene in IX with a digitally de-aged Mark Hamill (think Michael Douglas in Ant-Man)? Maybe all of IX will be a flashback? Maybe Force ghosts have no beards (shut up, Obi-Wan!) or maybe Mark just learned his services are no longer needed, now that Lando will steal the show? Let the speculations begin! 😉

Mark Hamill: The Last Jedi #notmylukeskywalker

Oh man. This is priceless folks. The man who played Luke Skywalker says exactly what I feel. He even refers to the Disney Star Wars version of Luke Skywalker as “Jake Skywalker.” Affirmation (from those who matter) is a beautiful thing.

Mark Hamill generated a lot of conversation after he stated that he fundamentally disagreed with The Last Jedi director Rian Johsnon about direction of Luke’s story. Variety caught up Hamill at the Tony Awards and he clarified his recent comments. Hamill said, “I got in trouble, because I was quoted as saying to Rian that I fundamentally disagree with everything you decided about Luke, and it was inartfully phrased. What I was, was surprised at how he saw Luke. And it took me a while to get around to his way of thinking, but once I was there it was a thrilling experience.” Check out the full video!
