Mark Hamill has been busy promoting ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, which is due to hit cinema’s in December of this year.
In his most recent interview the actor states that the main difference between this film and all the prior ‘Star Wars’ movies is that this one is made by the fans for the fans.
Hamill who starred in the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy as Luke Skywalker has said that he is intrigued by a ‘Star Wars’ developing without the influence of its creator George Lucas.
Hamill said, according to ComingSoon: “The most interesting aspect from my point of view is that [Star Wars] is now in the hands of the generation who were fans. It’s the next generation of filmmakers who were sort of weened on these pictures.”
The actor went on to joke about the increased security on the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ set.
“It’s a whole different era now. When we made the original films, you had the odd reporter hanging around the studio bribing people to give them stories.
“Now, I said to them, ‘Do I really have to wear this robe and this hood that covers my entire head to go from the trailer to the soundstage?’ They said, ‘Yeah, there’s drones.’ Seriously! There’s drones flying over the studio trying to get pictures of whatever they can get pictures of.”
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is due for release on December 18, 2015.
