What does Mark Hamill think about being replaced in Star Wars? The Luke Skywalker actor has a very specific opinion about that ‘recast’.
Mark Hamill has told the truth about being replaced in Star Wars. In a chat with Esquire, the emblematic actor of the galaxy saga has revealed the reason why he returned for The Mandalorian, how he was and if there will be more Luke Skywalker in the future. Especially after the latest rumors related to the movie of Rey played by Daisy Ridley. Some rumors that have triggered alarms. Of course, his return would be an event for mass popular culture.
After Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni showed Mark Hamill The Mandalorian, with which he was “very impressed”, the star of the original Star Wars trilogy found himself on a Disney+ set performing a scene, which was later imitated by actor Graham Hamilton. According to Lucasfilm’s galactic saga caption, “it’s unusual to see yourself like this.” Since he, Graham Hamilton and others contributed to recreate that younger version of himself. A version that hallucinated everyone.
What does the actor think about being replaced by a younger one?
Given the complexity, coupled with how recognizable Luke Skywalker is, he also noted that “it couldn’t be cheap.” But while Mark Hamill’s young Luke Skywalker has appeared in both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, he doesn’t think he should return for another Luke-centric story. However, If Lucasfilm decided to return to the story of the famous Jedi, Hamill believes they need to recast an actor appropriate to his age.. Therefore, he believes that the option to do a ‘recast’ is very positive. “People say, ‘Oh, now you’re going to be able to do a whole post-Return of the Jedi Luke series.’ I said, ‘I don’t think so.’ First of all, they don’t need to tell those stories. But if they do, they might get an age-appropriate actor.” It is surprising that he agrees to be replaced by another. That says a lot about him.
