Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

When asked about his comment regarding the use of archive footage at a Star Wars convention, she said: 'I have no idea why he said that.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled to hit the theaters on December 15, 2017. A sweeping shot of a rocky coast showed what looks to be Rey with her lightsaber practicing while a figure, presumably Luke, supervises nearby, as noted by Vox.

"Part of me did fall in love with her". I firmly believe that each generation needs to have their own piece of Star Wars.

The Last Jedi will be released this December 15 and features the lovely scenery of Malin Head.

It has already been confirmed that General Leia will appear in Episode IX, reportedly utilising scenes filmed for The Last Jedi.

In a recent interview with ABC News, however, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said that the confirmation may have stemmed from Fisher's confusion. She's taking her first step to coming to terms with this thing inside her that she never knew was there and is just starting to reveal its potential.

"I promise you, if you go first, I'll heckle your funeral", Hamill remember Fisher promising him after balking at the idea of posthumous praise.

Hamill told stories of visiting with Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, in NY and attending incredible parties at their homes in Los Angeles. I think about where are we going, and what the characters need to go through.

Helmed by Rian Johnson, the flick stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Adam Driver and Late Carrie Fisher.

The trailer finally gives Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker some lines after his wordless appearance in Episode VII.

With the growth of tourism around Skellig Michael after the previous instalment - The Force Awakens, Donegal is thought to see an increase in tourism once The Last Jedi hits the big screen.
