Mark Hamill declares the clash worse than the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special, but was it worse than Sharknado?
The veteran actor Mark Hamill is one such actor who played Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga.Hamill is quite popular among his fans for his nice and kind attitude and the number of four million followers on Twitter approves that.Mark Hamill is an actor about whom a lot has been written and spoken and he also keeps updating his social media regularly but there are some facts which you might not know about this famous star.George Lucas had informed him much about his role during the audition and Mark Hamill was under the impression that he was going to play Han Solo, and it was Harrison Ford who was going to play Luke.Mark Hamill himself admitted this fact a few years back in an interview.However, it did not happen and now it is certainly difficult to think about some other star filling the shoes of Luke Skywalker.

"The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special" will premiere on Disney Plus on November 17, more than 40 years after Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher starred in the live action "Star Wars Holiday Special" in 1978.
Based on the announcement posted to the official Star Wars website, "The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special" takes place after the "The Rise of Skywalker," which concluded the latest "Star Wars" film trilogy in December 2019. Characters from all nine "Star Wars" films are said to appear in the 45-minute animated special, including Rey, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Yoda.
The holiday special will incorporate elements from the 1978 "Star Wars Holiday Special," a small piece of "Star Wars" culture often lampooned for its campy nature. The cast will once again visit Chewbacca's home world of Kashyyyk to celebrate a holiday called "Life Day." Rey finds a Jedi temple that sends her on a sprawling journey across the "Star Wars" timeline, encountering heroes and villains from the past.
"The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special" is being produced by Atomic Cartoons and Lucasfilm. Atomic previously produced animated Lego tie-ins for "Jurassic World" and "Spider-Man."

Solo’s down the middle brand of fan service came just a little too late.
Leia, played by the late Carrie Fisher, is one of the most important characters in the Star Wars saga.But now, thanks to a cryptic tweet by actor Mark Hamill, fans are wondering if they've been pronouncing her name wrong all this time.One cringe-worthy moment is when Hamill calls Harrison Ford "Hans" instead of Han Solo.There's also a tidbit about pronouncing Chewbacca.Of course, Hamill doesn't offer any hints to the correct pronunciation.But this Leia debate has proof on both sides.
Most Star Wars fans assumed The Last Jedi was referring to Luke Skywalker, as played by Mark Hamill but, in a recent interview with Yahoo!Entertainment, Todd Fisher, brother of Carrie Fisher, claimed that one of the major payoffs planned in The Rise of Skywalker was the realization of Leia as a fully-fledged Jedi warrior."She was going to be the big payoff in the final film," Todd Fisher said."She was going to be the last Jedi, so to speak."Of course, with Carrie Fisher passing away in 2016, we'll never get to see Fisher assume that role.That being said, Todd Fisher was very satisfied with the way director J.J. Abrams integrated the final footage of Carrie Fisher as Leia into The Rise of Skywalker.
Few people like to watch old movies of themselves, and actor Mark Hamill is no exception.On Tuesday, online fundraising platform Omaze shared a video of Hamill's audition for the role of Luke Skywalker in the original 1977 Star Wars film, and Hamill had a few cringe moments."It wasn't easy for me to watch this, ("WHO TALKS LIKE THIS?")but I suffered through it just for you because it is a great charity," Hamill wrote."Love that Omaze kindly provided subtitles so you don't miss a single moronic comment."The audition tape shows a very young Hamill (he was 25 when the film came out) reading lines with a mostly off-screen Harrison Ford, and Hamill reveals it was the first time the two had ever met.
But it’s kicking off a new range of figures in the galaxy far, far away called “Hyperreal” that are something totally new for the toymaker.Now, whether you’re buying things in that classic 3.75" scale or even the 6" size that’s come to dominate action figures at large, Star Wars figures are more articulated, more detailed, and generally better than ever.So what can make a new figure like this Hyperreal Darth Vader (full disclosure: a sample of the figure was provided by Hasbro for review) stand out, let alone worth of a nonsense buzzword name like “Hyperreal”?Sorry, I don’t have a Hot Toys Vader at all – I’m not made of money – and I couldn’t find my Black Series Vader, so you get his daughter instead.It needs to be that big so Hasbro can do two more things in the hope of earning that new moniker: one is an unprecedented level of detail and material manufacturing, using not just plastic but fabric and, in Vader’s case, rubberised latex to capture the details of his suit as closely to the movies as possible – if you’re the sort of Star Wars fan that takes notes of these kinds of details, this is specifically meant to be based on Vader’s suit as seen in Empire Strikes Back.The other is that, unlike Hasbro’s other Star Wars figures, the Hyperreal Darth Vader is built around an internal, metal skeleton.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has a lot of familiar Star Wars foodstuffs, drinks, and treats.And, of course, there’s blue milk, Luke Skywalker’s favourite (?)So, naturally, Mark Hamill had to try the blue milk in Galaxy’s Edge and compare it to the real thing.And, as he revealed on Twitter, the theme park stuff beats out the film."Note to self: Remember you're on-camera & Disney signs your paychecks."(Honestly though: the warm, oily, sickly-sweet milk dyed blue from the movie was gag-inducing -while this frosty non-dairy drink tasted like a yummy fruit smoothie.
Based in Helsinki, Seriously is the publisher of the Best Fiends, a cartoon-style mobile game that launched in 2014 and has been downloaded close to 100 million times.Seriously took a page from the strategy of its neighbor Rovio, the maker of the Angry Birds mobile games and films, by launching an animated cartoon based on Best Fiends.Among the all-star voice cast for the animated short films: Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame, who is also one of the best voice actors around (his Joker is iconic).“They have really strong skill sets in technology, performance marketing, analytics, and live operations that are super impressive and these are areas where we’re looking to scale up,” said Andrew Stalbow, the CEO of Seriously, in an exclusive interview with GamesBeat.“We bring some really strong products, creativity, experience with mass media marketing, and knowledge of the non-traditional channels of the mobile game industry.We felt it could be a good combination.”
Netflix has released the first full trailer for its new fantasy series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.It's a prequel to the 1982 cult classic fantasy/adventure film The Dark Crystal and features a star-studded cast that includes Sigourney Weaver as the narrating Myth Speaker and Mark Hamill—fresh off voicing Chucky in the Child's Play reboot—as The Scientist.That crystal cracks, producing two new species: the evil Skeksis and kindly wizards called the Mystics.The task of restoring a missing shard to heal the crystal falls to a young Gelfling named Jen, aided by a wise astronomer named Aughra and his fellow Gelfling Kira.And he's on a tight schedule: the shard must be restored before the planet's three suns align or the Skeksis will rule forever.The film struggled at the box office opening weekend, hammered by competitors Tootsie and E.T.
A decade ago, however, it was an entirely different time across all media for the Caped Crusader.Sure, there were movie-tie ins like Eurocom’s Batman Begins, but with mixed reviews engulfing the title a sequel devoted to Nolan’s successive cinematic hit ‘The Dark Knight’ was scrapped resulting in the closure of Pandemic Studios and the Batman license being up for grabs.Both Hill and Walker co-founded Rocksteady in 2004: initially launching Urban Chaos: Riot Response, a first-person shooter set in an unnamed American state.“We literally tore their hand off!”"They explained they had the rights to develop a game using the core Batman license – not one based on any particular movie or TV show – and asked if we were interested in pitching for it,” says Hill.“One of the main themes in Arkham Asylum is about the conflict between their characters, and I think one of the strengths of the game is how well they both really threw themselves into that dynamic.”
At San Diego Comic-Con Friday, the daughter of legendary filmmaker Jim Henson said she’d been to Comic-Con two times before with a Dark Crystal project.Neither of those panned out.It wasn’t until this time, sitting in front of 7,000 fans inside Hall H, with a brand new Netflix prequel show on the horizon that her dream finally came to fruition.Dreams were a theme on the panel for Netflix’s new show The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance coming in August.Dreams of the people behind it coming to fruition, dreams of the famous voice actors getting to be a part of it, and the dreamlike trip for fans who got to see the world of Thra by watching the gorgeous first episode in full.Mark Hamill, who voices The Scientist, talked about his memories of the original film.
Premiering at San Diego Comic-Con today, Netflix and the Jim Henson Company’s new Dark Crystal series just gave us a really neat look at what it takes to create this puppet-filled show.In case you missed it, the cast for this one is phenomenal.Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel lead the cast with Sigourney Weaver, Mark Hamill, Andy Samberg, Natalie Dormer, Jason Isaacs, Eddie Izzard, Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey, Benedict Wong, Hannah John-Kamen, Awkwafina and Dave Goelz all lending their voices.People lucky enough to be in attendance at the panel today got to watch an episode but for now, we outsiders get a cool behind-the-scenes video.As previously mentioned, in addition to CG technology, the company’s classic puppetry is a huge piece of the show.And it looks like the hard work paid off.
The newest Star Wars Luke Skywalker action figure, unveiled during San Diego Comic-Con 2019, promises to look super Skywalker-ey with its realistic rubber exterior skin and internal skeletal structure that makes for poses that can be held.Hasbro's Skywalker joins the toy maker's Star Wars: The Black Series Hyperreal line, which so far includes an 8-inch Darth Vader.The figures are higher end than the standard figures in the Black Series line, with seamless joints and 28 points of hyper-articulation that allow for a variety of poses.The Hyperreal line was inspired by the growing popularity of toy photographs on Instagram and the desire to make those pictures look more realistic, the designers have said."Stop-motion maquettes were definitely part of what spawned the internal structure," Patrick Schneider, Star Wars senior brand manager, told StarWars.com."We wanted something was going to not only be posable, but would also hold that pose.
