MARK HAMILL WALT DISNEY WORLD STAR WARS WEEKENDS PHOTO HINTS AT LUKE'S EPISODE 7 LOOK
BY ERIC GOLDMAN When is a photo of Mark Hamill and Mickey Mouse not just a photo of Mark Hamill and Mickey Mouse? (Not that that's not amazing on its own!) When we know Hamill is now reprising his role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII.
Hamill is making his first ever appearance at Walt Disney World's popular Star Wars Weekends event this year, from June 6-8. Walt Disney World have released the following newly-taken photo of Hamill and Mickey as part of their promotion for his appearance. Besides giving an easy setup for every silly joke made about Disney adding their characters into the Star Wars films, it actually gives us our best idea yet of how Hamill will look in Episode VII.
As some other photos have hinted, it's clear Hamill has lost quite a bit of weight to reprise his role as Luke. And, while we're not certain Hamill himself has begun filming his scenes for the film -- a production like Star Wars is obviously going to be a long one -- it's very likely that beard he's rocking is going to be Luke's as well in the film. Yes, it looks like the traditional Jedi mentor beard has found its new home!
