Any time a member of the original cast of STAR WARS talks about their experience on STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I’m instantly interesting. If you would like to categorize this news as non-news, you can certainly blame me for that, but hell if I’m the only one who wants to hear anything Mark Hamill has to say about STAR WARS. He could share what the craft services were like on Empire and I would dissect it. The original trio of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will appear in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and it’s likely at some point, some of them or all of them will be on the Millennium Falcon which returned brilliantly in the first trailer. Let’s now dissect what Hamill had to say about the experience.

Extra caught up with Mark Hamill at a fan screening of KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, in which Hamill makes a cameo, and they talked quickly about The Force Awakens:

It was interesting to see it helmed by someone who is such a fan of the originals like J.J. Abrams. It’s really about setting up for a new generation.

On stepping onto the Millennium Falcon:

I can’t describe the feeling… the déjà vu of walking onto the Millennium Falcon, remembering all these details that they’ve gotten exactly right… It still seems surreal to me and hard to believe it’s actually happening.

He seems happy and confident about it, so that makes me even more happy and confident about it. The point he made about Abrams being a fan of the series, therefore it being in good hands, is absolutely true. Abrams has said countless times how these films inspired him to be a filmmaker; why would anyone doubt that he would go at this with anything but the best intentions? Just remember that and the next 11 months will be fine.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens December 18th, 2015.
