History repeats itself. Mark Hamill spoke in an interview about the secrecy of the old and new episodes of “Star Wars.”
I had during an interview Pc gamer the opportunity to speak with Mark Hamill about his return to the “Star Wars” universe, among other things, and Hamill also spoke about the secrecy surrounding the making of the saga. While he first spoke about his role as the Joker in “Arkham Knight,” for which there would only be a bonus payout if he could keep certain secrets to himself, he quickly recalled the times he was in the original. Trilogy stood in front of the camera: “I was proud to know a year and a half before everyone else that Darth Vader was my father. (…) [Episode V – Regisseur] Irvin Kershner said, ‘I know something I’m going to tell you now. George knows, I know and now I’ll tell you and if it leaks, we know it was you. Because while filming “The Empire Strikes Back” I had the infamous phrase “No, I’m your father.” It sounded different and not even the actor of Darth Vader, David Prowse, knew the secret of his iconic figure.
George Lucas and Kershner feared that this giant spoiler would make the rounds ahead of time, which is why they hadn’t told almost anyone. Hamill had also kept the revelation to himself until the end and had not even revealed it to his colleagues or his wife. “I couldn’t believe it, I was so excited. That was a crazy plot twist. I still remember when the first screening took place and Harrison turned to me and said, ‘You never told me that. (…) And now it happens again, actually I’m not even authorized to say that I’m in ‘Episode VII’. Everything is secret “.
There are also some secrets about the villain Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver. With the help of a new image, you can at least let your imagination run wild:
As of December 17, 2015, the secret will finally end when “Star Wars: Episode VII – Rise of Power” begins in German cinemas.
