Mark Hamill recently made a stop at Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast. He talked about a number of subjects, including the possibility of Star Wars fatigue. The actor who plays Luke Skywalker also brought up an idea to director J.J. Abrams on how to bring Luke Skywalker back into the fold.

She gets frustrated because there’s no answer so she rushes to the new Death Star…that’s three so far…and she almost gets there when she’s stopped by two Stormtroopers. Just before she’s abducted, one Stormtrooper turns to the other and blows him away, pulls off his helmet and says, “Hi sis, I’m here to rescue you.
“It’s more effective to have people that really have a history with Han Solo witness his death and be unable to stop it,” said Hamill. “His wife, the mother of his child, his best friend. Instead of two characters that have known him what…20 minutes?”
