'Part of me did fall in love' with Carrie Fisher: Mark Hamill

"Just Breathe and now, reach out".

"Wait until you see her in The Last Jedi", Hamill promised fans. Luke convinced pops to double-cross Darth Sidious and fulfill his prophecy by restoring balance to the Force.

"It's so much bigger", he replies. Talking until that ominous line, "I only know one truth". [But] I think that's the only story point that's in the teaser, which is Luke saying it's time for the Jedi to end...

The Last Jedi director was also asked whether Rey's parentage will be addressed in the film.

Prinze suggested that sightless Jedi Kanan Jarrus was like a "cool uncle", but the challenges of Season 3 - and "Trials of the Darksaber" in particular - forced him to grow up.

Shots of Luke and R2D2 watching a building burn seem to be connected with the visions Rey had - it's Maz Katana's basement when she touched Luke's lightsaber for the first time in The Force Awakens. He was joined by his longtime producer, Ram Bergman, as they spent Thursday night (13Apr17) mingling with fans, which continued well into the early hours of Friday as Rian signed autographs, shook hands, and posed for pictures along the way.

During the Star Wars Celebration Day in Orlando, Ridley shared that she and Fisher sang together while they were filming the Star Wars installment.


Fisher died on December 27 at the age of 60, four days after she had a cardiac arrest. First and foremost is because it's 2017 and there's no reason why a Star Wars film shouldn't have a gay relationship front and centre.

Hamill told stories of visiting with Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, in NY and attending incredible parties at their homes in Los Angeles. "Part of me did fall in love with her". We didn't see her escape.

Whether or not Carrie Fisher would appear in the final episode of the latest Star Wars trilogy has become something of a saga in itself.

"11:13: Johnson also thanks fans for camping out".

Johnson unveiled a new star, Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose, a maintenance worker who is part of the resistance. But he revealed that anything is possible in the movie.

"I'd like you to take a moment to appreciate the work these guys have done", said Filoni, to thunderous applause.

"To a certain extent, it's not Luke's story anymore". "I know what it's like when you don't get to end a series", he added, referencing the unceremonious cancellation of The Clone Wars, "and it wasn't as fun".
