Actor Mark Hamill recently discussed his thoughts on giving the public their first look at a “Star Wars” film that he’s in since the iconic 1970s trilogy. As it turns out, he’s much less interested in watching the trailer than he is in watching others watch the trailer.
“The most moving aspect of them releasing that trailer was watching a video of other people watching it,” he told IGN, speaking of a video his daughter played for him. “Sometimes you get sort of isolated and disconnected because I don’t really follow it as closely as, say, my son Nathan does, but to see those people that thrilled, it was moving to me. I actually got a lump in my throat watching that.”
Although the film is a year away from hitting theaters, that hasn’t stopped fans from watching and analyzing every aspect of it, such as the subtle differences to the Millennium Falcon.
However, the one man who everyone would expect to have seen the trailer, George Lucas, says he’s waiting to do so on the big screen.
