Mark Hamill Talks 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' & Carrie Fisher at SXSW

Star Wars: Mark Hamill wants Jacob Tremblay as Luke Skywalker, but will this be a good idea?

When it comes to big adventure movies like the Star Wars franchise, character deaths are always big moments.

Hamill also noted later in the Q&A again that he was the same with George Lucas, and that as an actor, he's "an assistant to the chef".

With the Blu-ray and digital release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi drawing close, Disney has released a sneak peek at one of the movie's most exciting special features.

"An intimate documentary delving into Rian Johnson's process as he comes in as a director new to the Star Wars universe".

Unfortunately, when you put aside your loyalty to Star Wars and become a little more critical, The Last Jedi doesn't hold up. Worse, the director himself only exacerbates the problem.

If that news wasn't enough to wet your whistle, Blizzard have also revealed that a new single-player experience is on the way. To help them survive the night, players can draw on an arsenal of new tricks, including the eerie new Echo keyword.

He also adds that he got a number of tweets from Russian accounts, begging him not to kill off the character of General Hux (played by Domhnall Gleeson).

"I didn't even get that."
At the end of the day, however, he said that "When you get down to it, it's not Mark Hamill in a blockbuster".

In the years after Return of the Jedi, this former farmboy-turned-last hope of the Jedi went ahead and tried to rekindle the Jedi Order. Seriously. I'm not trying to be self-aggrandizing, I'm just saying, in the greater scope of things, number one, I never expected to come back, so this is all like found money.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" had a steamy moment between Rey and Kylo Ren. Many of these have a special connection with Ireland and we want to celebrate and recognise this. As it pertained to the characterization of Luke Skywalker, it seems he did what he wanted. Instead of being engulfed in flames, we see cracked-helmet-Phasma clawing her way back onto the platform along with a few stormtroopers.

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. And there's a reason for that: "It's because myths are not made to sell action figures; myths are made to reflect the most hard transitions we go through in life".
