Mark Hamill Spills Some Dirt on Star Wars Episodes 7, 8 and 9

Luke4.jpgFirst and foremost, head and shoulders above all other things, I am a Star Wars Geek. A New Hope was the first film that my mother ever took me too as a kid and it has stuck with me ever since. Don’t ask me to sit down and justify why I feel so connected to the films… I just do (Yes, even Episodes 1 and 2). Anyone else feel like a hug?

Anyway, came across this little story. Apparently Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) was participating on one of the Star Wars DVD promotional tours when some people started asking him about the possibilities of Episodes VII, VIII and IX. His answers were pretty interesting:

“You know when I first did this, it was four trilogies. 12 movies! And out on the desert, any time between setups… lots of free time. And George was talking about this whole thing. I said, ‘Why are you starting with IV, V and VI? It’s crazy.’ [Imitating Lucas grumble,] ‘It’s the most commercial section of the movie.’ He said the first trilogy’s darker, more serious. And the impression I got, he said, ‘Um, how’d you like to be in Episode IX?’ This is 1976. ‘When is that going to be?’ ‘2011.’ I defy anyone to add 36 years to their lives and not be stunned. Even an eight year old is like, ‘No, I’ll never be 47.’ So I did the math and figured out how old I’d be. I said, ‘Well, what do you want me to do?’ He said, ‘You’ll just be like a cameo. You’ll be like Obi Wan handing the lightsaber down to the next new hope.’

The fact of the matter is that no matter how good or bad Episode III is gonig to be, people will want the story to continue. I do. Let’s see what George thinks after all the Revenge of the Sith hoopla is over and done with. BUT I STILL WANT INDY IV!!! Read the whole article with Mark Hamil here.
