In this brief clip from 1983, Hamill mentions Lucas’ future plans for a Star Wars trilogy that might have Luke taking the role of elder Jedi. Hamill states that Lucas was thinking this would take place around 2011, which is pretty close. I imagine this was all a coincidence, but you got to admit, it is a pretty marvelous one. The thing I don’t believe about this interview is that Hamill would even say, “well, I don’t know.”
You take the role Mark!
