A lot of fans have been waiting to see Mark Hamill back in action as Luke Skywalker and Star Wars: The Last Jedi is going to give us that. We have no idea what to expect from his story arc, but Mark Hamill seemed very surprised by Luke Skywalker’s role in the story after he had read the script.
While appearing on Good Morning America, the actor talked about his role in the film a bit. He goes on to reveal what he thinks is the most important line is.
“In fact, the most important line, I think, Luke says, is, ‘This is not going to go the way you think.’ When I read the script, I was stunned.”
We’ve all heard this line in the trailers that have been released, and it’s going to be really interesting to see exactly how things do end up going! I guess we can expect the unexpected. The actor went on to talk about how he felt about only appearing in the final scene of The Force Awakens, saying:
“I thought, ‘This is the most elaborate entrance of my career.’ Everybody talks about me for two hours. I’m reading it and I kept marking down, ‘The sword of Skywalker is too powerful, Skywalker must be stopped…everybody’s talking about me!’ It was a shock.”
He then adds:
“It was a big surprise but I think there are much bigger surprises in The Last Jedi.“
I can’t wait to see what these big surprses are!
Mark Hamill also endorsed Sebastian Stan as a young Luke Skywalker and Stan jokingly left Hamill a video message about Hamill being his dad. The actor went on to joke that Sebastian Stan is much too handsome to be compared to him, but then Hamill, openly endorsing the idea of the Stan taking over the role of Luke Skywalker.
As you may have seen, the internet had gone crazy about how much Stan looked like Hamill and it’s hard to argue. If they ever did do a Luke Skywalker prequel film, which I hope the don’t, Stan would be great in the role.
