Mark Hamill Discusses Episode VII, Star Wars Fans, And More Ahead Of SWW Debut

Posted by Eric on June 4, 2014 at 07:24 PM CST

The Orlando Sentinel has posted unused quotes from their earlier interview with Mark Hamill, who makes his Star Wars Weekends debut this Friday at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.

Hamill spoke about his visits to the Pinewood Studios production offices in London prior to the start of principal photography. "I toured the departments, I've looked at wardrobe, and I saw the creature shop," he said. "I went around and met all the cast people, saw the technicians working on some new things."

Regarding spoilers for the film, Hamill said, "This is a whole different world ... 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 to keep the surprises for the movie instead of spoiling them on the Internet."

Hamill also discussed the exciting experience of reuniting with his fellow original trilogy actors, some of them for the first time in years. "I hadn't seen Tony Daniels or Carrie [Fisher] or Harrison [Ford] or Peter Mayhew in ages," he said. "I[t] 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 havenít worn in five years and finding a 20-dollar bill in the pocket. Oh, this is nice."

Mark Hamill will appear at Star Wars Weekends this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, where he'll answer questions from James Arnold Taylor in front of packed audiences during daily interview shows. Click here to read the rest of his comments to the Orlando Sentinel.
