Seeing the trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was a huge moment for all Star Wars fans, and this fact was not lost on Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. Hamill spoke with IGN recently about the trailer and said that he found watching reaction videos to the trailer to be very moving. Hamill told IGN,
"You know, I’ll tell you, the most moving aspect of them releasing that trailer was watching a [video] of other people watching it. My daughter put it on for me. It was all these people watching the trailer. Sometimes you get sort of isolated and disconnected because I don’t really follow it as closely as, say, [my son] Nathan does, but to see those people that thrilled, it was moving to me. I actually got a lump in my throat watching that. To see so many people that happy was a thrill."
It's nice to see that Hamill clearly knows how important Star Wars is to so many people. Hamill also talked about the new actors joining the galaxy far, far away, saying,
"They’re all wonderful actors. I think they’ve done such a great job of not only the characters themselves, but the people they’ve picked to play them. John Boyega is just wonderful and Daisy, I just think the world of and Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac and Andy Serkis. They’re just… Like I say, this is in very, very good hands. I’m vicariously very proud of them even though I have no justification for being able to be proud!"
