Mark Hamill explains why his time on Star Wars is officially over

Quote:
By Rosy Cordero

Mark Hamill feels his time as Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars universe has come to an end.

Hamill introduced the world to the complex character in the saga's 1977 debut created by George Lucas which turned the former soap opera actor into a superstar. The veteran actor tells EW why he is saying goodbye to the character but remains excited about the future of the franchise.

"Oh, I can't imagine that, no," Hamill tells EW exclusively about whether or not he'd consider playing in the Star Wars universe again if the situation was right. "I had a beginning, middle, and end. Those films gave me far more than I ever expected when we started out so it's never even occurred to me. My farewell was in Episode IX and it was bittersweet. I love all those people and I certainly have affection for George and the character he created. I'm full of gratitude for what it has given me and my career but I don't want to be greedy. There are still so many more stories to tell and so many great actors to tell them, they don't need me."

Hamill may have said his final farewell to Luke and his adventures but he's still watching. He explains why the franchise's evolution with the Disney+ series The Mandalorian is a smart idea.

"I think they have a wonderful advantage on The Mandalorian in that it's economical storytelling. They don't have the burden of delivering a gigantic special effects extravaganza like the films had to do," he explains. "It sort of gets back to the basics of George envisioning it as a western in space. It has that tone of a Sergio Leone Western. I'm very impressed with it and to me, a very smart move on their part because you can't keep trying to top...It's like the superhero movies that have to deliver these gargantuan epics. And with The Mandalorian, they can concentrate more on the characters and the storytelling. I think it's excellent."

Up next for Hamill is a guest-starring role in FX's What We Do in the Shadows as an ancient vampire set to air on Wednesday.

I'm sad that he'll no longer take part in the SW universe but I understand I didn't know they were going to make a tv show from the movie "What we do in the shadows" looks like Taika is involved so I'm definitely watching

I never heard of "What we do in the shadows" before.

It looks cheesy funny from what I saw in the previews.

I personally haven't watched it fully, but I definitely will if a tv show is following the movie

It'll be nice to see Mark in a non SW film, I don't think I've seen him in other roles tbh.

I didn’t like Jay and Silent Bob, lol.
But Kingsman was good.

That's possible I wish he were in more films but I suppose you have to choose your roles wisely.

Yea. Plus all the voice work he does. A schedule conflict is a possibility.

I know him mostly as the voice of The Joker, but if you look at his IMDb there are countless other things he has voiced. It’s incredible.
