Mark Hamill told some painful truths about Star Wars’ treatment of Luke Skywalker, then took it all back

The force hasn’t been strong with Mark Hamill.

The “Star Wars” star apologized for publicly voicing his creative differences with “Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson regarding the film’s handling of the Luke Skywalker character.

“I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public,” Hamill wrote on Twitter. “Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private. All I wanted was to make good movie. I got more than that- @rianjohnson made an all-time GREAT one! #HumbledHamill.”

The actor previously told Vanity Fair he “fundamentally disagree[d]” with Luke Skywalker’s treatment in “Last Jedi,” which has made over $800 million worldwide.

“I at one point had to say to Rian, ‘I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character. Now, having said that, I have gotten it off my chest, and my job now is to take what you’ve created and do my best to realize your vision.'”

In an interview with Spanish outlet SensaCine, Hamill said “This is the next generation of ‘Star Wars’ so I almost had to think of another character … but I had to do what Rian wanted me to do because it serves the story well. … I still haven’t accepted it completely.”

Many fans were dissatisfied with the new film’s depiction of Luke Skywalker, with a number sharing their frustrations on social media under the hashtags #NotMyLuke and #NotMyLukeSkywalker.

While critics have generally reviewed “The Last Jedi” favorably, moviegoers have been less enthusiastic.

The latest entry in the “Star Wars” franchise has a 91 percent critic score on the review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes–but only a 51 percent audience score.
