Mark Hamill 'regrets' airing his The Last Jedi concerns in public

Star Wars Luke Leia Mark Hamill Carrie Fisher

Fans are starkly divided on whether Rian Johnson's newest entry into the Star Wars saga is good or not, but star Mark Hamill certainly hasn't helped to calm the fan outcry. "Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private", he tweeted.

During an interview with the Spanish outlet SensaCine, an emotional Hamill said, "I nearly had to think of Luke as another character".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has become the second-highest grossing movie of 2017, beating out Wonder Woman.

Describing Ireland, director Rian Johnson said: "It's a gorgeous place". "But if he made a mistake he would try and right that wrong, so right there, we had a fundamental difference".

A few weeks ago, Hamill says The Last Jedi version of Luke is more like a different character.




This comes after the actor had said he was not completely satisfied with how the character was developed for the latest Star Wars installment.

The actor also returned to the "Jedis don't give up" issue in an interview with Spanish website SensaCine and said he "almost had to think of Luke as another character". He's not my Luke Skywalker, but I had to do what Rian wanted me to do because it serves the story well'. But soon, Hamill was back to adding fuel to the fan fire, claiming "He's not my Luke Skywalker anymore".

A year on from her tragic death, her Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill has paid tribute by sharing a number of pictures of them together - as well as a truly badass stained glass portrait of Carrie.

John Boyega from the Hollywood blockbuster movie "Star Wars: The Last Jedi portraits".

We've written plenty about the negative reaction that The Last Jedi has received from some fans - some valid, some not - with much of the ire directed at Johnson's radical choices for the franchise's beloved characters.
