Mark Hamill Named Patrick's Day 'Guest of Honour'

Not all diehard Star Wars followers were entirely happy with Rian Johnson's rather bold new direction for their beloved franchise and soome of the deleted scenes look likely to add texture and contect to some moments that left certain fans unsatisfied.

Mark Hamill was yet another surprise guest at SXSW. After The Last Jedi was released and showed Luke's fate, hardcore fanboys, fangirls and seasoned skeptics took to Twitter, Reddit, and the multitude of social media platforms to argue their stance on the much "darker" storyline for the iconic Jedi.

Then time turns backwards as we find ourselves at Pinewood Studios where Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) are rehearsing their lines with Johnson, Kennedy, and producer Ram Bergman.

"When thinking about today, I was really sorry that we don't have the other member of our trio here to celebrate with us", Ford said.

"An intimate documentary delving into Rian Johnson's process as he comes in as a director new to the Star Wars universe".

As the home release of The Last Jedi nears, some of the behind-the-scenes footage from the film's production is making its way online.

Bus carrying dozens of students plunges into Alabama ravine
The bus was one of two carrying the school band and chaperones back from a band competition at Disney World in Florida. Rescuers had to repel down into the ravine to reach the bus, and some passengers were evacuated using ropes, Mack said.

"I'm still upset that he hasn't aged a day", Hamill quips good-naturedly. Johnson said that documentaries have always been magic to him because he is "baffled by how they can get such intimate moments with a camera sitting there". His stance on The Last Jedi now is that it is a great movie and he loved the experience.

The Last Jedi, a weathered Luke Skywalker and Yoda's Force ghost reunite - and the actors' real-life reunion is just as touching.

You know, I think my outlook has definitely changed in that I just want to continue to do good work.

As well as his Star Wars connection, research into Hamill's family history has found that he has a double-link to Ireland. Will we see an actual sex scene in a galaxy far, far away?

Leading up the film's premiere, many fans felt excited to see the sequel to the record-breaking The Force Awakens.
