In our Mark Hamill Star Wars: The Force Awakens interview, he revealed how things have changed in the decades since making Star Wars: A New Hope and the seventh film that just finished shooting with J.J. Abrams at the helm.
Hamill is out promoting his role in Kingsman: The Secret Service and had something to add to the experience of making a Star Wars movie again.
There was something that had the veteran superstar feeling all sorts of deja vu and it was a prop, albeit a very large one. It can be seen in a triumphant moment in that Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer.
“Walking on the Millennium Falcon, again,” he told Extra.
Hamill was amazed at the meticulous nature that Abrams and his production design team took with recreating one of the most iconic spaceships ever to grace the big screen. “I'm remembering all these details that they've gotten exactly right from photographs, I guess, and old blueprints... I can't describe the feeling,” Hamill admitted.
“Even now it seems so surreal to me. It seems so hard to believe it's actually happening."
Oh, it’s happening, Mark. We just have to wait months and months for it to arrive. Look for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters December 18 and we hear that the next trailer will land in front of Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1.
