  • Harrison Ford honors Carrie Fisher at Mark Hamill's Walk of Fame induction

Producer Tylie Cox, producer Ram Bergman, Writer/Director Rian Johnson, director Anthony Wonke and actor Mark Hamill attend the Star Wars: The Last Jedi "The Director and The Jedi" SXSW Documentary Premiere at Paramount Theatre on March 12, 2018 in Austin, Texas.

There's an instantly iconic moment in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" when Luke Skywalker endures a barrage of blaster fire from the First Order and emerges from the dust unharmed.

For Mark Hamill, seeing Yoda again an emotional moment was. Fisher had talked to him about being friends with actresses like Meryl Streep, who have been making movies constantly as they've gotten older and how she instead had large gaps between her roles.

"We're looking forward to welcoming him back "home" to celebrate our national holiday and St Patrick's Festival with us".

He continued: 'It was hard for her to watch herself onscreen. He says that all he had to do was put a gun to her head and she complied without hesitation.

The Last Jedi will no doubt remain a controversial film among the fans for quite some time, it's becoming increasingly clear that Hamill is genuine in saying that he liked the final product in spite of his personal misgivings while filming it.

"Myths are not made to sell action figures", he continues.

So how many fans will be hopping down to the parade now?

Hamill echoed the idea, explaining he came to the realization that Rian's choices for Luke were ones that were ultimately the best for the continuation of the franchise.

Due out digitally starting today, with the physical version slated for release on March 27th, the 4K UHD version will run you between $24.99 and $29.99USD depending on which service you choose to purchase it from.

Recently, John Boyega who stars as stormtrooper-turned-Resistance fighter Finn in the new trilogy revealed he wants to see a Yoda origin story.

"I had a wonderful entrance in Episode VII".

"You are with me through thick and thin and the highs and the lows and everywhere in between", Hamill told the cheering crowd as he collected his star.
