Mark Hamill confirmed that he added the dialogue to the New Hope. The film marked the beginning of the Star Wars franchise, which has only been developed and expanded since 1977. However, there are still many questions about the first trilogy and Hamill remains an excellent source of official information on social networking sites. He often answers the questions of the fans and clarifies rumors as he entertains himself.
It wasn’t in the script, but I said it when I found out the cameras were working. I knew it didn’t matter because I was wearing a helmet and no one could see my face. Everyone was excited, so George let me hold the line for the next couple of shots. #Lifehttps://t.co/FvW3U4vRZY

Earlier this week, a Star Wars fan contacted Mark Hamill about a little New Hope dialogue. In a scene where Han Solo and Luke Skywalker are wearing storm trooper suits, Luke says I don’t see anything in this helmet that wasn’t originally in George Lucas’ script. Rumor has it the actor invented a line there because he thought we weren’t operating the cameras. Hamill wanted to talk about this dialogue and its origins.
POWERFUL: The trailer for the video game Star Wars announced by EA will arrive next Monday.

Although it’s not the most exciting part of Star Wars news, at some point it will be a good thing for die-hard fans. Luke Skywalker spends a lot of time complaining about New Hope, and the helmet of the Stormtrooper is just another thing to complain about, showing the action arch of the character over time. When we get to Return of the Jedi, the character whines and goes along with the Jedi’s knowledge, although he starts whining again in the last trilogy.
Star Wars fans appreciate Luke Skywalker’s original story, although many didn’t like what happened at the last Jedi and Skywalker’s Ascension. Even Mark Hamill admitted that he didn’t like how old Luke was doing, although he later backed down. Anyway, movies are made for fun, which we can all use now. When Hamill finishes the Star Wars franchise, he’s not finished contacting and entertaining his fans.
So far the Mandalorians have brought the magic of the old Star Wars school to their fans. John Favraux confirmed that the second season will arrive on time this fall, which is a great relief for many who were expecting a delay. Mark Hamill is not in the show, but he is a big fan and supports Baby Yoda and Mando in their adventures. You can see Mark Hamill’s reaction on Twitter on the New Hope dialogue above.
