Mark Hamill: “I think it’s better to let Lucasfilm make the announcements.”

Mark Hamill’s new movie, Sushi Girl, had its premiere last night, so of course Hamill’s being asked about Episode VII.

“I just know that nothing’s been decided, whether we’re in or out,” he said to Coming Soon. But don’t expect any a Carrie-style snarking: “Until I know more about what they have in mind, I think it’s better to let Lucasfilm make the announcements,” he told E!

Meanwhile, SFX asked him where he’d see an older Luke Skywalker:

I remember when we were making the first trilogy I thought… When I realized they were gonna make the princess my sister, I said, “You know where this is headed? It’s headed for Obi-Wan territory, where I’m in a desolate hovel, as an elderly recluse.” But I’ve heard other ideas, like you say – somebody who’s training Jedi.

“I never, ever dreamed that we would do any more movies. And so I really sort of let it go,” he said.

    I’d love to see Mark back as Luke, too. Watching RotJ on Spike the other day, during Luke’s scenes with Vader all I could keep thinking was, “Yeah. I’d totally watch this guy in more of these movies.”

    The more I think about it, the more I think I’d gladly have the EU become infinities if it meant *seeing* Luke as the wise Jedi Master he was always meant to be.

    Of course, if he has a red-headed wife with him, that’d make it even more awesome.

    Hamill doesn’t have any Hollywood baggage either. I just love him and would love to see him back in a gffa.

    If we get a new SW movie AND Mark Hamill is in it, it will be like all my Christmases came at once! :D
