Mark Hamill is pretty excited about Solo: A Star Wars Story and is a big fan of the recent teaser trailer.
While it seemed like a week or so ago that the first footage for Solo: A Star Wars Story would never make an appearance, fans have now been treated to both a TV spot and a teaser for the new Star Wars anthology film in the space of two days.
One person that is super excited about the upcoming film is Mark Hamill, who expressed his love for the trailer to Entertainment Tonight.
First of all, Hamill said he understands it is not possible to please every Star Wars fan:
“This is the only franchise where, if you go on Twitter, they say, ‘If such and such happens, I am so out.’ So now they’re speculating about things they don’t want to see,” Hamill said. “It surprises me, but, look, you can’t please everybody. You just have to try and make the best story you can. I was sort of taken aback by it, but, who knows? Not everybody likes broccoli. Some people like carrots or Brussels sprouts better. That’s just the way life is.”
Hamill was also asked if he had any advice for the new Han Solo, Alden Ehrenreich:
“Anybody that plays a young anything, like when they did the… prequel to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” Hamill explained. “Tom Berenger and William Katt were great, but they said ‘Oh, well he’s not like Robert Redford, and he’s not like Paul Newman.’ That’s already hard. But the trailer looks fantastic! I don’t know what anyone’s complaining about.
“The trailer makes you want to see the movie, and I’m dying to see it. So, it worked.”
