Be prepared to have a surprise as Mark Hamill - Luke Skywalker - will have a beard and will look like Obi Wan Kanobi in Star Wars Episode 7! In the short interview below Mark talked to the BBC recently about Star Wars: Episode VII, saying:
"It was certainly unexpected — I already had a beginning, middle and end, I never thought we'd come back. To go on to those sets that evoked so many memories, it is just astonishing. I thought even if they did a third trilogy, we wouldn't be involved, because it is really about the new generation of characters. We are just there to lend our support and grow contractually obligated beards."
Go ahead, have a look at the full interview and you'll notice too that Mark has no longer his juvenile energy that he had the last time we saw him in Revenge of the Jedi. But that was 30 years ago and everybody gets older, you remember that, don't you?
