Mark Hamill talks Star Wars Episode VII

Mark Hamill spoke with Entertainment News and had some interesting things to say about Star Wars Episode VII…

“They’re talking to us. George wanted to know whether we’d be interested. He did say that if we didn’t want to do it, they wouldn’t cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out. … I can tell you right away that we haven’t signed any contracts. We’re in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed — on their end, not mine. They’re more busy than I am.”

Mark also commented that he’d like to see a return to the “carefree and lighthearted and humorous” sense of the original trilogy, as well as a return of the original cast. While pure conjecture, Mark speculated about Luke’s role in the new movies.

“I’m assuming, because I haven’t talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring — like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character. … When I found out [while making the original trilogy] that ultimate good news/bad news joke – the good news is there’s a real attractive, hot girl in the universe; the bad news is she’s your sister – I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to wind up like Sir Alec [Guinness]. I’m going to be a lonely old hermit living out in some kind of desert igloo with a couple of robots.'”

EW Interviews Mark Hamill

Hot off the news that Mark Hamill would be heading to Star Wars Celebration VI, Entertainment Weekly posted an interview with the famous Star Wars actor where he talks about playing Luke, the fans, and his legacy.

How has your own relationship with Luke evolved? Have you ever wanted to revisit that character?

Mark Hamill: Luke was an interesting character because he evolved so much over the three films from kind of a whiny teenager into a self-assured and formidable Jedi Knight, so there was an arc to him. He really changed, especially in The Empire Strikes Back. That’s probably my favorite because it was so cerebral and there was the spiritual aspect of Yoda. It was with mixed feelings, then, that I left the series, because, even though it had a beginning, a middle, and an end, I had only just become a Jedi when it finished. It’d be like telling the story of how James Bond becomes a Double-0 agent, yet the story ends as soon as he gets his license to kill. Part of me always longed to do just one more film and see what Luke would be like now that he’s on the level of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the student having become the master. But it was not meant to be.

That screaming you’re hearing right now is the fan response to the just-in announcement from CVI that Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, is joining the roster of guest appearances at this summer’s celebration in Orlando.  Since Carrie Fisher is already signed on to appear, it just needs Han to show up and we’ll have the Big Three gang back together.

Did you know Mark Hamill was kidnapped?

Comic book creators Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons have a new comic coming out tomorrow called The Secret Service. The plot centers around the kidnapping of famous sci-fi actors, and in issue one, this means Mark Hamill. Yes, the Mark Hamill. He not only appears in the comic, but the creators reached out to the real life Mark Hamill to get his approval. According to The Hollywood Reporter, if the comic gets made into a film they’re hoping Mark will get to play himself on the big screen.

Regardless of film aspirations, there is a eight page preview of the comic. Right off the bat, the comic dishes out a lot of playful humor in the dialog before plowing into some violence and a bunch of dark humor. The art looks pretty good and I really like the fun vibe of the story. If you’re out buying Star Wars comics tomorrow, be sure to keep an eye out for The Secret Service. The preview has a heck of an ending.
