Mark Hamill recently did an interview with the Orlando Sentinel where he talks about several different topics regarding Episode VII, including his preparation for returning as Luke Skywalker, spoilers for the movie and reuniting with the original cast again. Here’s a portion of the interview:
On preparing for “Star Wars VII”: “I’ve altered my diet. I’ve started working out. There’s that. But on the film itself: I toured the 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.”
On “Star Wars” spoilers: “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.”
On reuniting: “I hadn’t seen Tony Daniels or Carrie [Fisher] or Harrison [Ford] or Peter Mayhew in ages. … I 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. Oh, this is nice.”
It’s always great to hear Mark Hamill talk about Star Wars, so be sure to check out the full interview over at the Orlando Sentinel.
