Mark Hamill Quotes About Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi

Mark Hamill Has Some Thoughts About The Last Jedi's Ending: "He's Not My Luke Skywalker"

Since the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Dec. 15, the reaction from passionate fans has been split. Despite featuring an interesting relationship between Rey and Kylo Ren, and the fact it's the most feminist and diverse entry into the franchise, Luke Skywalker's journey in the movie has been pretty divisive. So much so that a pretty savage petition to remove The Last Jedi from the official canon has been signed by over 46,000 people. If you're one of them, there's someone out there who might agree with your choice: Mark Hamill.

The actor, who originated the role of Luke in 1977's A New Hope, revealed in a recent interview clip that he's not the biggest fan of how the iconic Jedi's story wraps up. Apparently it's something he and director Rian Johnson could never agree on and Hamill considers The Last Jedi's take on the character "not my Luke Skywalker."

"I said to Rian, I said 'Jedis don't give up'," he explained. "I mean even if he had a problem, maybe take a year to try and regroup . . . but if he made a mistake he would try and right that wrong."

Still, Hamill was quick to note that he supports Johnson every step of the way, even if they had a fundamental disagreement about Luke: "I still haven't accepted it completely, but it's only a movie. I hope people like it, I hope they don't get upset, and I came to really believe that Rian was the exact man that they needed for this job."
