“He’s not my Luke Skywalker.”
That’s the candid hot take from Mark Hamill himself, referring to writer/director Rian Johnson‘s subversive spin on the iconic hero (and saga) in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
In the video above (WITH SPOILERS), you can hear Hamill offer his honest displeasure in what Luke became, while still professionally conceding that it wasn’t his decision to make.
Hamill’s words speak for many fans disappointed in The Last Jedi, a film that seems to marginalize or even dispense of key underpinnings of the whole Jedi mythos. You can read my own thoughts about it here, or read my proper review of the film here.
To hear even more of Hamill’s dissenting views, watch the video below (AGAIN, SPOILERS) of clips from a variety of other interviews.
