A huge thanks to The Official Star Wars Blog for that screencap of Harrison Ford and Anthony Daniels up top. A big thanks as well to frequent visitor to the site, Denethor the II, for sending me the link to this interview in the first place. Man…I hope Denethor didn’t use a palantir to find this link for us…

  1. Wow. That little moment at the top where Mark Hamill is talking about his kid and people thinking he could play young Luke in the prequels – that’s pretty crazy.
