Star Wars: Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill reveals The Force Awakens | Films | Entertainment


Back in 2015, the final scene of : The Force Awakens featured Hamill’s only scene, with no dialogue, as Luke.

Arriving on his planet of exile, Ahch-To, Rey approached him with his father’s blue lightsaber.

However, this wasn’t entirely the original ending for the movie, as Hamill has now revealed.

Speaking with Mtime, the actor explained how it was changed due to contradicting plans for The Last Jedi.

Hamill said: “When we were doing [The Force Awakens], Rian [Johnson, The Last Jedi director] said, ‘Oh and by the way we might have a couple of boulders floating to show your Force emanating’.

“So I was led to believe that I still had the Force and it was really strong in me.

“When I read [The Last Jedi] before VII came out, I said ‘what?’ and called JJ [Abrams, The Force Awakens director] or Rian to say, ‘Are you guys aware of this? Have you seen a cut? Is there floating boulders?’ 

“And they said, ‘No, we caught that and we worked it all out’.”

Over Christmas he tweeted: “I regret voicing my doubts and insecurities in public. Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private.

“All I wanted was to make (a) good movie. I got more than that. Rian Johnson made an all-time GREAT one! #HumbledHamill.”
