Mark Hamill Lightsaber

Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: Disney has released a video showing Mark Hamill playing around with the lightsaber at his DisneyWorld photoshoot with Mickey Mouse. Last time I saw Hamill at Comic-Con he was large — Its nice to see Hamill has gotten back in shape for Episode VII. The original story from Germain follows and the new video is embedded after the jump.

That’s the question fans have been wondering for sometime as the actor gets ready to return to the role of Luke Skywalker for J.J. AbramsStar Wars Episode VII.

Hamill has yet to start shooting the film, though. He’s instead fulfilling some other Disney/Star Wars duties. The actor is currently in Orlando, Florida for Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World and posed with a lightsaber, giving fans some idea of what to expect come December 18, 2015. He also talked to the local paper about his training for the film and the crazy spoiler culture. See Star Wars 7 Mark Hamill and read his quotes below.

EW also confirmed casting is still ongoing, the main cast members have been attached for a while, re-writing Michael Arndt‘s script delayed production and more. Read the break down below. Read More »
