It’s been five years since Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit theaters. Director Rian Johnson’s film was arguably one of the most controversial parts of the sci-fi saga. While Episode 8 was praised on the one hand for the risk of finally daring something new in the world of Star Wars, on the other hand it rained severe criticism for Lucasfilm. But not only the audience, also the actors were dissatisfied with Johnson’s work.
New statement from Mark Hamill
One of Episode 8’s biggest critics is actor Mark Hamill, who starred again as Luke Skywalker. He was very dissatisfied with the way his Jedi role was portrayed in the film. “He’s not my Luke Skywalker,” Hamill said in an interview some time ago. Still, of course, he did what Johnson and Lucasfilm had planned for Luke. Via Twitter However, the actor hinted that he may have changed his mind about The Last Jedi to some degree.

On the anniversary of Episode 8, Mark Hamill received several questions from a fan. Whether he wants to share any anecdotes from back then, whether his opinion has changed in any way over the past five years and whether he would have done anything differently. In a tweet, Hamill actually answered the questions – albeit briefly and cryptically. The actor writes on Twitter “Not really, a little, yes.” to the fan questions.
No further details
So now we know that Mark Hamill feels at least a little differently about Episode 8 today. However, he would have made a few changes. Of course, fans would have liked a more detailed statement here, but for the time being the very short reactions of the Luke actor remain. Most recently, Mark Hamill made cameo appearances in The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian. Incidentally, season 3 with Din Djarin and Grogu starts on March 1, 2023 on Disney Plus.
