Mark Hamill on Playing Luke Skywalker Again!
Since the news of the Star Wars movie hit the net, Mark Hamill has been talking about welding his light saber once more as he returns to the Star Wars universe. Hamill has since also revealed that that he feels it will be very difficult for the next chapter in the Star Wars cinematic line up live up to the hype.
At a recent interview, Hamill said “I have this feeling that no matter what we do there’s going to be a faction that really is disappointed. You just can’t live up to that.”
Regardless of what fans will think, Hamill is starting to get into playing Luke Skywalker again. “I’ve altered my diet. I’ve started working out,” he explained. “But on the film itself: I toured departments, I’ve looked at wardrobe, and I saw the creature shop. I went around and met all the cast people, saw the technicians working on some new things.
And it seems a real highlight for Hamill has been reuniting with his cast mate from the earlier films: “I hadn’t seen Tony Daniels or Carrie [Fisher] or Harrison [Ford] or Peter Mayhew in ages… it was wonderful to see them again, because I didn’t expect to. Again, this is all so unexpected. It’s like getting out that pair of pants you haven’t worn in five years and finding a 20-dollar bill in the pocket!”
Hamill insists that he will not provide any teasers for the next highly anticipated Star Wars film … “This is a whole different world” he explained. “The first one no one cared. The second one there was a lot of interest, but it was before the internet… I tell people we’re not trying to annoy you or tease you or play some massive game. Basically, what the goal is [is] to keep the surprises for the movie instead of spoiling them on the internet.”
Original Star Wars Comics – Hot Hot Hot!
As December approaches, fans of the original Marvel Comics adaptation (and even those discovering it for the first time) of Star Wars have been snapping up copies from the series. And while issue number 1 is usually on the radar for most collectors, I have found that issues 42 and 68, both featuring Boba Fett, are also in high demand. The Comic Doctor has worked on countless Star Wars comic books, and I anticipate many more will be worked on before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theatres in five months. If you have a Star Wars comic that has seen better days, perhaps I can help – give The Comic Doctor a call.
Perhaps one of your Star Wars comics looks like the one in the following gallery. Check out what can be done, even to comics with pretty bad defects. And take a look at more before and after samples here:
