Luke SkywalkerAt this point, who the hell even knows how many rumors there have been about the plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and however many there are, there are only going to be dozens more before we hit the December 18 release date. With all the swirling, conflicting reports, we don’t know what to believe, and we won’t know anything for certain until we finally sit down in that darkened theater—Disney, Lucasfilm, and J.J. Abrams sure as hell aren’t going to tell us much, if anything. But returning franchise star Mark Hamill have outed one of the biggest rumors floating around as being total BS.

Just a warning, there are potential spoilers beyond this point, but you probably already knew that.

Star WarsFor most of us, December 18, 2015 is going to be a very nostalgic moment as we wait in the darkened theater to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Regardless of your feelings afterwards, the sensation of sitting down to watch The Phantom Menace for the first time was an experience that’s difficult to put into words. It’s not just fans who have a deep connection to the franchise, but stepping on set the first time had to be a surreal moment for returning cast member as well, and one of them, Mark Hamill, recently talked about that experience.

HamillAs cool as it must be to be in a Star Wars, to be part of something so many people love and revere, the flip side is that no matter what you do, especially if you’re one of the key players, you’re always going to have to fend off related questions. Small price to pay, but still, after a few decades, it probably gets old. Such is the case with Mark Hamill when he sat down with Yahoo to talk about his role in an upcoming Elf musical special. We don’t care a whit about that, but lucky for us, Hamill is always game to talk about that far, far away galaxy, and discussed his experience on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Mark Hamill Addresses Those Huge Episode VII Spoilers

FatherSonThere’s been no shortage of potential spoilers for Star Wars: Episode VII, ranging from leaked concept art to freaking drone surveillance footage. But last week a true whopper hit the interwebs, a potentially massive reveal on the order of “Luke, I am your father.” We’re talking here about a twist so big that it’s sparked a fierce debate about whether anyone should be reporting it at all. Well, the story just got a shade more surreal with the revelation that, whether the rumor proves to be accurate, it definitely isn’t unprecedented, and nor is it the first time director J.J. Abrams has been at least indirectly connected to the idea.

There’s no way to talk about this without, well, talking about it, so flee in the opposite direction unless you’re willing to face down

MASSIVE POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW! RUN AWAY!

Star Wars: Episode VII: Mark Hamill Shows Of His Bushy New Beard

fb share tweet share

Mark HamillWe don’t know much about J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, but we do know that Luke Skywalker is going to very, very different than he used to. Gone is the baby-faced Mark Hamill we all know from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. And this new photo of the actor looking more grizzled than we’ve ever seen him drives that point home.

If you’ve seen recent picture of him, Hamill has been sporting a rather rugged beard. He’s been seen out and about with his new face sweater, and at one point even quipped about it being contractually obligated. And if the recent rumors we’ve been hearing about Episode VII are in fact true, there’s a very good reason for this new look.

Mark Hamill Talks Returning To Star Wars, Broken Legs, And New Characters

Luke SkywalkerOne of the most exciting facts about Star Wars: Episode VII, aside from the mere fact that it’s actually happening, is that the big three from the original trilogy—Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), and Han Solo (Harrison Ford)—are back for further adventures. These were career defining roles for all three of them—okay, Ford has had a long, illustrious career, but for Hamill and Fisher, this was the peak—and as you can imagine, being back in that galaxy far, far away is bringing up all kinds of memories and emotions. Hamill, especially, has a decent amount to say about the matter.

Sporting a scruffy, rugged man-beard, Hamill appeared at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere and spoke to the BBC. If you buy the rumors about the plot that started circulating earlier this week about Luke being incommunicado for the 30-years since the end of Return of the Jedi, this look could certainly indicate that he’s been in hiding, like some crazy old coot out in the woods. (Perhaps he’s taken refuge on that gorgeous island off of the Irish coast that Episode VII recently rented out for filming.)
