Mark Hamill Shares Thoughts on STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Trailer
Since the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released we've seen some hilarious fan reactions, a heartfelt reaction from Kevin Smith, and, of course, George Lucas hasn't even bothered to watch it yet. I'm sure fans would like to know what Mark Hamill thought of the trailer, and in a recent interview with IGN, he opens up about it saying,
"Oh my gosh. You know, I’ll tell you, the most moving aspect of them releasing that trailer was watching a [video] of other people watching it. My daughter put it on for me. It was all these people watching the trailer. Sometimes you get sort of isolated and disconnected because I don’t really follow it as closely as, say, [my son] Nathan does, but to see those people that thrilled, it was moving to me. I actually got a lump in my throat watching that. To see so many people that happy was a thrill. And it’s hard to believe it’s a whole year away that we have to wait but I’m practicing my phrase, 'You have to wait and see.' They asked me not to talk about it and I agreed but it’s hard. People want to know!"
I love that Hamill loves that we, the fans, are all excited for the movie. After I watched the trailer, a bazillion times I started showing it to other people, and at that point I was just watching the reactions on their faces. I love seeing the reactions of people's faces when they see something cool. Hamill went on to talk about the new cast of the film that was teased in the trailer:
"I felt that the minute I met all of them. They’re all wonderful actors. I think they’ve done such a great job of not only the characters themselves, but the people they’ve picked to play them. John Boyega is just wonderful and Daisy, I just think the world of and Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac and Andy Serkis. They’re just… Like I say, this is in very, very good hands. I’m vicariously very proud of them even though I have no justification for being able to be proud!"
I can't wait to see more footage from the movie, but it sounds like it won't happen until Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out. Fans are sure to lose their minds when they see Hamill and Harrison Ford back up on the big screen. They have to include them in the next trailer!
It was also recently reported that Hamill will reprise his role of The Trickster in CW's The Flash.
