She storms off, stating that she still believes in the concept of Luke Skywalker, even if the man himself doesn't anymore. "It just wasn't a Luke I understood".

Over the course of filming, Hamill said that Johnson had left him with the understanding that "they can't always give the audience what they expect and what they want" but that they "can give them something they don't expect and what we want". "I think longing for something, there's usually a reason you're longing for it".

Ford praised Hamill by calling him "a master of his own life" and "a quiet, sincere, honest person".The Indiana Jones hero also made a point of solemnly mentioning the absence of Carrie Fisher, who passed away at the end of 2016 from cardiac arrest.

So how many fans will be hopping down to the parade now? I'm in black. I have a glove.

The force will be with revellers at the forthcoming St Patrick's Day parade in Dublin, with Mark Hamill, the Star Wars actor, set to attend as an global guest of honour. Fans are excited about Star Wars: The Last Jedi's digital release as it will offer a slew of added extras and bonus content. "I feel an investment in it, a certain sense of ownership, which is a joke, because I don't own it, now Disney does", Hamill said. But you care. That's what happens with these films. That belongs in the [filmmaking] process. There's a huge period of unaccounted time between Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so any prequel could draw from that timeline for another Luke Skywalker movie.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro. The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is working on a new trilogy outside of the traditional Skywalker saga and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on another series of movies outside of both those arenas.
