In 2015, in a galaxy far-far away, Mark Hamill decided that he did not want to return to 'Star Wars' and only agreed to return after learning that Ford would be reprising the role of Han Solo, reports The New York Times.
In an interview, Hamill said, "I was just really scared. I thought, why mess with it? The idea of catching lightning in a bottle twice was ridiculously remote."
But when Ford agreed to return, Hamill had no bluff left to call and realised that he had to come back as well.
"Can you imagine if I was the only one to say no? I'd be the most hated man in nerd-dom," noted Hamill.
Fisher told him, "What's your problem? I am Princess Leia. You're Luke Skywalker. Get used to it."
The 66-year-old actor will make his full-time return in the upcoming 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi', which sees Rey seeking help from Skywalker in the ways of learning the force.
'The Last Jedi' is set to feature a number of returning cast members, including Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), John Boyega (Finn), Daisy Ridley (Rey), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong'o (Maz Kanata), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Andy Serkis (Snoke), Domhnall Gleeson (General Lux) and the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia.
The flick is slated to release on December 15. (ANI)
