Next month, the actor will return to the franchise for the first time since portraying Luke Skywalker in 'Return of the Jedi' in 1983.
"I was just really scared. I thought, why mess with it? The idea of catching lightning in a bottle twice was ridiculously remote," said Hamill.
The 66-year-old actor also noted that one of the factors was age-his and his co-stars'.
He noted, "No one wants to see the 50-, 60-, 70-year-old versions of us, running around, bumping heads on the Death Star."
While Hamill promised to be an integral part of 'The Last Jedi' and had to prepare for the role as such, he's still musing over the amount of dieting and exercise, mandated by Lucasfilm to appear in 'The Force Awakens', even though his appearance was extremely limited.
