When the announcement finally arrived confirming that  the original trilogy cast of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia would return in the forthcoming Star Wars film Episode VII, fans were excited to see what Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher respectively had to say.

Mark Hamill said that the new movie has a big demand. “Look, I’m aware that a lot of people don’t care one way or another, but for the UPFs – the ultra passionate fans – they would come after me like the angry townspeople with torches in the old Frankenstein pictures. I would have a lot to answer for if I didn’t at least try to make the effort. It’s not like I had a choice. I feel like I was called up for service by the Selective Service.”

Although Hamill admits we was happy to leave his Star Wars days in a galaxy far, far way, he did say that reconnecting with old cast and friends was enjoyable. “I hadn’t seen Tony Daniels or Carrie Fisher or Harrison Ford or Peter Mayhew in ages. I was wonderful to see them again, because I didn’t expect to. Again, this is all so unexpected.”

Additionally, as filming is under way, Hamill has been preparing for his iconic role: “I’ve altered my diet. I’ve started working out. There’s that. But on the film itself: I toured the departments, I’ve looked at wardrobe, and I saw the creature shop. I went around and met all the cast people, saw the technicians working on some new things.”

 J.J. Abrams directs the new film Star Wars: Episode VII which will be out on December 18, 2015.
