VIDEO: Mark Hamill Reacts to 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Title Announcement

Mark Hamill is relieved that the title of Star Wars: Episode 8 has finally been revealed!

The 65-year-old actor explained that director Rian Johnson told him about the title during filming, but he had no interest in knowing!

“I said, ‘Don’t tell me these things! I talk in my sleep!’ They have us so jacked up with paranoia over leaks. It’s funny, back when we were making the original, nobody cared,” he laughed.

Mark added that he thought the title had a “real samurai” vibe and enjoyed the minimalism.

Mark Hamill Pays Tribute to Carrie Fisher, Speaks of Their Very First Meeting

Mark Hamill (who plays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise), wrote a tribute for Carrie Fisher after her tragic death last week.

In his guest column for THR, the 65-year-old actor wrote of their first time meeting.

“So I said to the production office, ‘I’d like to meet her before we work together.’ They worked out that we’d meet for dinner. You know, she was 19 years old at the time. I was a worldly 24. So I was thinking, ‘Oh my God, it’ll be like working with a high school kid.’ But I was just bowled over,” Mark wrote. “I mean she was just so instantly ingratiating and funny and outspoken. She had a way of just being so brutally candid. I’d just met her but it was like talking to a person you’d known for ten years. She was telling me stuff about her stepfather, about her mom, about Eddie Fisher — it was just harrowing in its detail. I kept thinking, ‘Should I know this?’ I mean, I wouldn’t have shared that with somebody that I had trusted for years and years and years. But she was the opposite. She just sucked you into her world.”
