Many of us were left rather heartbroken when Han Solo was killed off in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the pain was definitely amplified (SPOILERS) when Luke Skywalker died at the end of The Last Jedi. Our Star Wars campaign, including our films with Mark Hamill praising the beauty and people of Ireland, has been seen by over 8 million people around the world - whetting peoples' appetites to come and visit the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland. He was also in The Book of Henry, but we can't fault him for that. While the film itself has many known special features, like deleted scenes and production footage, writer-director Rian Johnson revealed a "hidden" feature: a dialogue-free, music-only version of The Last Jedi.
However, the 66-year-old actor is also grappling with a ghost from his past.
Below are some interesting bits about The Last Jedi we learned from both the documentary and the Q&A afterward with Johnson, Wonke, Mark Hamill, and producer Ram Bergman.
He paid tribute to his fans after the ceremony, telling AFP he would never get used to the acclaim, nor take it for granted.
Even the crew were in awe with working with the original characters of Star Wars. I just have have one goal: "which is to make the most powerful Star Wars movie I possibly can". He said: 'It's a conversation - and in this case it's a very intense conversation.
Mark Hamill's time spent in Co Kerry shooting for the Star Wars film is not his only link to the country. While speaking on a panel at SXSW, Hamill said former President Barack Obama influenced the "dirt off your shoulder" movement.
The big difference here is, though, we don't see where she lands! And based on the fractures found in the fandom after The Last Jedi, the sentiment behind these words is the only way to move on. I'm constantly fighting to get stories that I want told to be told.
"If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere". Hamill replied, "He's always right". Perhaps I had my expectations set too high and set myself up to be disappointed, but I just couldn't get into the story.
