Hamill pays tribute to Fisher on anniversary of death

The Last Jedi Reaches $844M Globally, Jumanji is Up to $89.1M Domestically

Seeing them in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and knowing that this was her last film makes the whole thing even more emotional. "I got more than that - [Rian Johnson] made an all-time GREAT one!" The location scouts were so taken with Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way that key locations in counties Cork, Kerry, Clare and Donegal were handpicked to represent the planet Ahch-to in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

In a recent press junket promo clip, the 66-year-old actor revealed that he especially disagreed with how Luke was portrayed in the Rian Johnson-directed film.

He then got somewhat more philosophical while confirming that he believed his character from the original trilogy would've handled his life differently. "I've had trouble accepting what [Johnson] saw for Luke but again, I mean, I have to say, having seen the movie I was wrong", he said. But a week after he stirred up fan outcry against Last Jedi with his facile statement that "Jedis don't give up", Hamill took to Twitter to clear the air.

'Right there we had a fundamental difference, but it's not my story anymore, ' he admitted, before reiterating 'It's somebody else's story'. Maybe he's Jake Skywalker.

Carrie played Princess Leia in 1977's Star Wars, going on to play the heroine in The Empire Strikes Back, The Return Of The Jedi and The Force Awakens, while a CGI version of her appears in spin-off Rogue One. "But I had to do what Rian wanted me to do because it serves the story well".

The actor also returned to the "Jedis don't give up" issue in an interview with Spanish website SensaCine and said he "almost had to think of Luke as another character".

We've written plenty about the negative reaction that The Last Jedi has received from some fans - some valid, some not - with much of the ire directed at Johnson's radical choices for the franchise's beloved characters.

'I hope people like it.
