Mark Hamill Regrets Criticizing STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI

On Tuesday, Mark Hamill regretted voicing his thoughts on how Luke Skywalker was written in the Last Jedi.

The actor wrote in a tweet that he should have kept his thoughts on the matter out of the public and that Johnson made a great film.

“I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public,” Hamill tweeted to his more than 2.2 million followers. “Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private. All I wanted was to make good movie. I got more than that- @rianjohnson made an all-time GREAT one! #HumbledHamill”

It was only last week that Hamill voiced his opinion, saying this Luke wasn’t his Luke Skywalker. And that George Lucas wouldn’t have written him the way Rian Johnson did.

“I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character,” Hamill told Johnson during shooting of the film, the actor recounted in a May interview in Vanity Fair.

Johnson has also addressed the fan criticism and backlash of the film, saying, “The goal is never to divide or make people upset, but I do think the conversations that are happening were going to have to happen at some point if sw is going to grow, move forward and stay vital.”

The Last Jedi opened on Dec. 14
