Star Wars: Mark Hamill on Being Luke Skywalker, ‘Episode VIII’

15 July 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, kicked off proceedings at Star Wars Celebration Europe at London’s ExCel Centre on Friday with an admission.

“People say, “Give us a detail about ‘Episode VIII,’ ” he told the packed crowd. “I know you’ll love the irony that I am contractually forbidden to do so.”

When we last saw Luke Skywalker at the end of “The Force Awakens,” he was hiding out in a Jedi Temple on the aquatic planet Ahch-To. Rey (Daisy Ridley) tracks him down and hands him his lightsaber. Then, the movie ends — Hamill doesn’t utter a single word of dialogue in the film. Director J.J. Abrams called the moment “this great long drum roll up to seeing this guy,” but Hamill revealed he was initially skeptical.

“I was nervous,” he continued. “Say I turned and people groaned? But I want to do all movies like that — 30 seconds work and second billing. »

Episode VIII is due out in time for the Star Wars 40th anniversary. Here's what we know so far, plus a bit of speculation about its events.

Nb: The following contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and speculation about Episode VIII. 

"In the middle act of a movie or a book or anything else,  not much happens. It sort of evolves the story, makes the plot more complicated." - George Lucas on The Empire Strikes Back

Disney may have had a lot riding on Star Wars: The Force Awakens - essentially, the future of an entire franchise - but next year's Episode VIII brings potentially nail-biting risks of its own.
