Mark Hamill Reveals Why He's Disappointed Disney Hasn't Followed George Lucas' Outline For The Current Trilogy

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm back in 2012, the plan was for the new trilogy to be based on an outline by George Lucas but that quickly changed. Here, Mark Hamill explains why he's disappointed by that.

Now, in a new interview, Star Wars: The Last Jedi's Mark Hamill has revealed that while he's excited about where the current trilogy is going, he wishes Disney had followed the path Lucas envisioned.

And it is vastly different to what they have done. But then again, I don’t want to be an old stick in the mud. There were the originals. There’s the prequels. But that’s all George.
