So here we are, bringing you a video that shows Patrick Stewart and Mark Hamill facing off and talking about what they plan on eating. It is, admittedly, kind of funny.

Mark Hamill will always be known as Luke Skywalker, but outside of the Star Wars saga, he’s been doing extremely interesting work with an array of eclectic characters.

The original draft was written for Patrick Swayze, who unfortunately never got offered the role because he got sick. The next possibility was Sylvester Stallone, who couldn’t participate due to his schedule, followed by Star Wars saga legend Mark Hamill. You can read the script pages for both of these scenes below.

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Force Awakens said goodbye to Harrison Ford as Han Solo. Star Wars: The Last Jedi bid farewell to Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. So it only makes sense that the late Carrie Fisher gets her own send-off in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and co-writer Chris Terrio confirmed that one of the main goals of the movie – specifically because they had a limited amount of footage to work with from the previous films – was to figure out how to solidify Leia’s legacy in the entire saga and complete the arc that was alluded to in Return of the Jedi.
