Under the cut, Ridley and John Boyega are thrilled with their LEGO selves, Disneyland, birthdays, premieres, major cosmetic contracts… And pancakes.
James Arnold Taylor chats with Mark Hamill at Star Wars Weekends! He chats about his beard (yes, it’s exactly what you think it is,) talks Star Wars, does impressions, and even breaks into the Joker. (via)
In a hurry? Just the Joker/Luke dialogue:
The latest cast members make their debut (to us, anyway.)

Below the cut, John Boyega is no doubt happy to have two less secrets to keep, someone is now verified, and Bad Robot goes to the Eye. (Oh, and don’t forget J.J. Abrams’ master trolling.)
Yesterday brought the picture, today a video.
Mark Hamill wields a lightsaber again at Disney World. You’re welcome, Luklovers.
Mark Hamill talks Disney, Episode VII, fandom and more. He’ll make his debut Star Wars Weekends appearance later this week in Orlando.
Mark Hamill: “I would be the most reviled person on the planet,” if he had turned down Episode VII. We already knew about he and Carrie Fisher’s Celebration lunch with George Lucas, but the quote about “angry townspeople with torches” is sadly probably true. Shameful, but true. This is not a gentle fandom.
StarWars.com has announced the official cast for Episode VII. Star Wars alumni Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker will be joined by John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.
And that second new female role? They may still be looking, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford have both been spotted in London in recent days. And on Sunday, Peter Serafinowicz tweeted a photo of himself with Mark Hamill, saying “Met up with @HamillHimself in London today. I wonder why he’s here.”
Hamill also appears to be growing out a beard.
WHAT COULD IT MEAN? I kid, we totally know what it (probably) means.
Hamill hasn’t tweeted since the 18th, but Fisher poked fun at the rumor on Saturday: “So my do dog Gary has been spotted in London, but apparently without me. Who has he been seeing? Let me know if you have any clues.”
In this nearly 16-minute featurette, George Lucas, Ben Burtt, and Mark Hamill talk about the aim, origins and uses of the iconic weapon throughout the saga.
