Since the release (and in some cases before) of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill has been quoted as having issues with the way Luke Skywalker has been portrayed in the film. Fans who did not like the movie, used this as a rallying cry to change the minds of those that did like the film.
Today via his official Twitter account, Mark Hamill expressed his regret for voicing his initial feelings in public, and praises Rian Johnson’s efforts on the film. Hamill is undoubtedly happy with the way Star Wars: The Last Jedi turned out, and hopes this puts an end to any further reports to the contrary.
But as you can probably guess, the naysayers have come out of the woodwork to poo poo his apology, saying that he is only apologizing because his Disney overlords want him to apologize. You can read the tweet below…
I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public.Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private. All I wanted was to make good movie. I got more than that- @rianjohnson made an all-time GREAT one! #HumbledHamill https://t.co/8ujJfBuEdV
