Mark Hamill to appear at St. Patrick's Festival

Mark Hamill to appear at St. Patrick's Festival

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now available to own as a digital download and the film's director Rian Johnson has revealed a cool bonus feature that you can check out.

Mark Hamill was yet another surprise guest at SXSW.

There's only a few weeks to go until The Last Jedi arrives on Blu-ray, and the home release is packed with highly anticipated special features.

The latest Star Wars movie is now on sale on Amazon as you can buy The Last Jedi for $19.99.

The actor famous for playing Luke Skywalker tweeted that he was looking forward to meeting Michael D and drinking a mug of green milk. Shortly after The Last Jedi was released, Hamill shared his criticisms of the portrayal of Luke in a series interviews saying that it wasn't his vision of the character.

"One of my favorite shots of the movie, is those two fingers touching".

But there were still plenty of Star Wars fans critical of Johnson's choices, which gave the franchise's original hopeful hero a dark edge.

It depends on what point in Luke's life that you would have him be in the movie because at first, I'm thinking ... the whole point of Luke was that he was bored silly with his life. "I haven't been this speechless since The Force Awakens", Hamill said. And based on the fractures found in the fandom after The Last Jedi, the sentiment behind these words is the only way to move on.

"We'd look at each other and say "can you believe we're back here doing 'Star Wars" again?'" he said. We also get to see Rose attack Hux with her teeth, and Chewbacca partying it up with the Ahch-To Caretakers in a scene that is very reminiscent of the Ewok celebration in Jedi. He wanted to participate in a movie that really showed the process rather than one that would just promote the result of the process. "I care.", he said "I'm sorry to have expressed my misgivings (before we had finished the film)". Johnson said that documentaries have always been magic to him because he is "baffled by how they can get such intimate moments with a camera sitting there".
