Mark Hammill Confirms Carrie Fisher’s Involvement in Star Wars: Episode VII 0


A substantial part of all the rumors surrounding Star Wars: Episode VII revolves around the return of the original actors who played Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa. Even though none of the three actors have been officially confirmed, Mark Hamill (who played Luke Skywalker in the original) has admitted that he has had several meetings with both George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy, and while he didn’t confirm his involvement, he revealed that Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa) is definitely on board.

“Part of me is cautious,” confides Hamill, “saying ‘let well enough alone, let everyone keep their nice memories if they have nice memories and don’t try to go back and do it again.’ But the other side of me, the adventurous side, thinks, ‘if everyone’s in, how could I miss this?’

“I want it to be age appropriate, so heavy on the Jedi mind tricks and lighten up on the lightsaber duels,” he continues. “Let the kids do the heavy lifting.”

Another concern that Hamill has is whether the film will be too dependent on CGI or not:

“There’s nothing wrong with CGI, but I think you have to have a balance because the camera perceives the width and the depth and the weight of a miniature or a model.”
