Mark Hamill asks fans to relax about Star Wars: The Force Awakens

02.10.2015

Mark Hamill understands your pain. We are still over 300 days away from seeing STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and already we are losing our collective minds with each image, teaser, and rumor. Hell, just yesterday we all entertained the insane possibility of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opening this Summer instead of this Christmas.

Despite our incredibly high expectations, Luke Skywalker himself wants us to take a deep breath and collectively chill the F*ck out. Here is what Hamill told Hero Complex.

“I wish people would just relax. We’re not trying to play games with people. We just want to maximize their experience at the movies where it should be seen and not have it leaked over the Internet. Believe me, it will be here before you know it. Forget about it, that’s my advice. Look forward to all the summer movies. I’m telling you, it’s just a movie. These people that build it up in their minds like it’s going to be the second coming of, I don’t know what — they’re bound to be disappointed."

While I acknowledge that STAR WARS is not just a movie for the majority of fans of the franchise, Hamill is correct in the need for all of us to take a step back and not ruin this for everyone else. There is a whole generation of fans for whom STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will be their first time seeing a new STAR WARS movie on the big screen. For that, we owe it to them to enjoy this experience the way some of us did when THE PHANTOM MENACE debuted and for others when the first movie opened in 1977.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.

Most of the time it's the people that care the most that end up ruining it for themselves.

Irony is when the star of the franchise comes forward to tell you not to get overly excited about the movie that is ten months, one week and a few hours away.

This....

This... should be the video that plays in every movie theater to tell people to be quiet and not use cell phones during the show.

I do agree that everyone should just relax, but to a lot of people (myself included) this is not just a movie. This is THE movie experience of a lifetime. The chance to see our beloved characters back again with the original actors, is something I've been wanting to see forever (even when episode 1,2, and 3 came out). I'm so excited for this, and that video was pretty funny! Insane clowns with light sabers! LOL!

The man speaks truth

While it's fun to speculate about what will happen in THE FORCE AWAKENS, I fully expect to be completely wrong (and completely blown away) when the movie opens on December 18th. And yes, while I do love movies, I do say, "Relax. It's just a movie."

I agree with his point, but not his words.

Whenever I discuss movies, there are things that offend me as a film buff (that probably don't offend others). Saying "It's just a movie" is to me the worst insult.
