Mark Hamill Talks About About Shooting Scenes For 'The Last Jedi' On The Millennium Falcon

By: Dominic Jones

Several weeks ago, a new TV spot for Star Wars: The Last Jedi showed fans something they hadn't seen in over thirty years, new shots of Luke Skywalker aboard the Millennium Falcon.  Now, Luke Skywalker actor, Mark Hamill has spoke with Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican about what it was like shooting those scenes.  Suffice to say, it was an emotional day for Hamill.

Hamill recalled the first time he visited the Millennium Falcon set during The Last Jedi production, before shooting his scenes there.  He told EW,

"I was there with my family, with [my children] Nathan and Griffin and Chelsea and my wife Marilou, and [Lucasfilm] asked if the documentary crew could be there when I came back on the Millennium Falcon. I mean, this was not on the shooting day. I was just street clothes and going to visit that set. And I said, 'Sure.' (...) It was sort of like visiting an old house that you lived in when you were a kid,” he says. “I mean, I just welled up with emotion and I said, 'I need to be by myself.'"

Director and writer of The Last Jedi also spoke about the scene being shot, telling EW,
"God, I remember so vividly getting that shot of him turning on the lights in the Falcon cockpit. And we all kind of looked at each other, just like, 'Oh my God.'"

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th.  The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley as Rey, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Amilyn Holdo, Benicio Del Toro as DJ, and Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata.
