In October, Star Wars franchise pioneer and director George Lucas made headlines around the world when it was announced Walt Disney had purchased his Lucasfilm production company for $4.05 billion and that a new Star Wars movie was planned for a 2015 release. The original Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill, talked to E! on the red carpet of his new film, Sushi Girl, about the possibilities. Although he said he would consider being in the new film, he admitted he and his Star Wars co-star Carrie Fisher “have questions about it. And really, they're not even at the stage where they're able to answer those questions because, as far as I know, is there a story yet?" Hamill added, "Until I know more about what they have in mind, I think it's better to let Lucasfilm make the announcements.” ~Brandon Bastaldo

    He is 61 years old. He looks pretty good for his age. It's his saggy neck that makes him look older.

    Wow a 61 year old man looks different than he did 40 years ago!

    It's called Aging. Every man, woman and animal does it! And honestly I think he looks better than the baby face he used to be.

    He looks more similar to his Joker character in the Batman video games (he did the voice, btw)

    If he's in it, I'll go see it. If its that Hayden kid, count me out.

    Mark has the ability to get into better shape and with some makeup he will do just fine as the mentor to a whole new generation of jedi. I cant wait....

    Does Tribute ever give its articles titles that aren't misleading? MARK HAMILL TALKS STAR WARS SEQUEL! Interesting, let's see what he has to say...oh wait, he doesn't know a thing about it. Great.

    Always rumours. I think it would be a huge boost to the new franchises to get Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher involved. Of course they will be older and the longer they wait to make a movie the older they will look.

    Damn white people age badly.

  12. jen on November 29, 2012 5:05 PM

    We dont age the best, but we ar the hottest young people! Which is all we were ever really meant to be.

    In 2015 and LucasFilm/ILM? Come on people, Carrie and Mark will be CG!

    Part of the problem is the accident he was in while filming Empire Strikes Back. He suffered a lot of facial injuries, which were repaired. But he was told that not all of it would last. Heck, I still have a crush on him 30+ years later.
