As someone who’s been a part of Star Wars since the mid 70’s, you have to give Mark Hamill some credit for knowing his own mind, that of his character and those lead characters and actors around him. That said, this one comes from the gut.
Discussing his new show Knightfall with Den of Geek, Hamill touched on the fate of Han Solo.
“I just thought, Luke’s never going to see his best friend again. You look at it in a self-centred way. I said that it was a big mistake that those three people would never reunite in any way. I guess I was wrong, because nobody seems to care! I have to stipulate that I care, but it didn’t really seem to affect the larger audience. Luke, Han and Leia will never be together again, and I’ll probably never get to work with Harrison again.”
Understandable emotions, especially when going in back at the start of the decade he would have naturally expected to see the big three ride again, a feeling made even more poignant given the passing of Carrie Fisher, Kenny Baker and more recently Peter Mayhew, leaving Hamill and Anthony Daniels as the only remaining A New Hope actors.
