A star for Skywalker

Hamill is one of the most fan-favorite characters in the current "Star Wars" trilogy, and many consider his performance in "The Last Jedi" as his finest performance ever.

Star Wars is arguably the largest film franchise, but there aren't many directors that get the honor of directing one.

Plus, it's likely we haven't seen the last of Hamill in Star Wars.

Fisher, who passed away in December 2016, made her final film appearance in 2017's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". "Oh my God, This is really getting to me", said the 66-year old actor. Johnson took the stage to talk about his journey to Star Wars at a featured session - which featured a guest appearance from Mark Hamill.


The parade will feature over 2,000 members of marching bands from across the country, floats, and performers, as it makes its way through the city. The guy became a hero in his late teens and then derailed a galactic civil war nearly single-handedly.

When asked about what it was like giving direction to veteran actors Mark and the late Carrie Fisher, Rian laughed, "It's a conversation - and in this case it's a very intense conversation".

He added, "It's the closest thing we'll get to a sex scene in a "Star Wars" movie".

Mark Hamill spoke candidly about this on several occasions, so no surprise.


Hamill's great-grandmother Elizabeth Keating was born in Kilkenny in 1873, and left Ireland for America when she was a teenager.

Due out digitally starting today, with the physical version slated for release on March 27th, the 4K UHD version will run you between $24.99 and $29.99USD depending on which service you choose to purchase it from. She had seen more - far more. The Last Jedi is out on Blu-ray March 27.

"If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere". During filming, Johnson had told Hamill that "they can't always give the audience what they expect and what they want" but that they "can give them something they don't expect and what we want". Perhaps I had my expectations set too high and set myself up to be disappointed, but I just couldn't get into the story.
