Mark Hamill says he doesn't know what's going to happen in the next Star Wars, but he always seems to have more info than he realizes!
Maybe someone pulled a Jedi mind trick on him?
For instance, he knew months in advance that the next trilogy was coming!
So will his loose lips
sink ships blow up sail barges? Let's find out! He says:
"I can tell you right away that we haven't signed any contracts. We're in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm.
Both have had meetings set that were postponed — on their end, not mine. They're more busy than I am."
OK, the fact that the writer wants to meet with them means they definitely will be a part of it!
If they were going to write anyone out, they wouldn't have to have a sit-down about it! This isn't The Godfather!
So what will Luke be up to when he totally, definitely comes back? He says:
"I'm assuming, because I haven't talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring — like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character.
When I found out that ultimate good news/bad news joke – the good news is there's a real attractive, hot girl in the universe; the bad news is she's your sister – I thought, 'Well, I'm going to wind up like Sir Alec [Guinness]. I'm going to be a lonely old hermit living out in some kind of desert igloo with a couple of robots."
Hey, from his lips to Michael Arndt's ears! As long as they stay out of the Bantha poodoo, we'll be fine!
