You just can’t please every fan and Mark knows this first hand. I doubt he’s ever had to do so much talk over a Star Wars film, or anyone has.
Mark sat down with Entertainment Tonight this week to discuss his best friend’s Carrie Fisher grammy and oh yeah some Star Wars stuff.
When it comes to the backlash he said:
“This is the only franchise where, if you go on Twitter, they say, ‘If such and such happens, I am so out.’ So now they’re speculating about things they don’t want to see,” Hamill said. “It surprises me, but, look, you can’t please everybody. You just have to try and make the best story you can. I was sort of taken aback by it, but, who knows? Not everybody likes broccoli. Some people like carrots or Brussels sprouts better. That’s just the way life is.”
With all the heat new Han Solo Alden Ehrenreich was getting thru rumors and what not, Mark actually had some advice for the actor:
“Anybody that plays a young anything, like when they did the… prequel to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” Hamill explained. “Tom Berenger and William Katt were great, but they said ‘Oh, well he’s not like Robert Redford, and he’s not like Paul Newman.’ That’s already hard. But the trailer looks fantastic! I don’t know what anyone’s complaining about.
Oh, and what did he think of that teaser that released over the weekend?
“The trailer makes you want to see the movie, and I’m dying to see it. So, it worked.”
There you have it, folks, Luke Skywalker can’t wait to see the film.
