|On set at Pinewood: Rian Johnson and Msrk Hamill|
The Adventures of Luke Skywalker certainly took a different (and fan divisive) journey than many of The Last Jedi's viewers had expected, literally from the character's first scene on from the end of The Force Awakens, right up the last moments of the Battle of Crait. Mark Hamill was equally shocked and surprised by developments conceived by writer/director Rian Johnson when reading TLJ's script, events and character evolution that went beyond what he expected (a situation that wasn't the first time/experience for the actor, either - remember Return of the Jedi during 1981/82, and his unrealized hopes for an almost Dark Side-turned Luke?). Thankfully, once filming had begun in London and Ireland by 2016, the actor would become more comfortable of the thoughtful and emotional scenario crafted for the character, and ultimately accepting of Luke's path ahead, within a different style of franchise to the one first conceived by George Lucas.
