What does he know?
- While promoting Sushi Girl, Mark Hamill spoke about Star Wars: Episode VII. Here are the highlights…
I don't have any information that isn't already out there. And I'm in a place where sometimes I forget what's classified and what's not. I said to my son – because my son is really the Star Wars fanatic in my family, of my three kids – I said, "How come you know more about Star Wars than me or even Lucasfilm?" He goes, "Well, Dad, I go to StarWars.com." He knew about the new writer, Michael Arndt, before I knew about that… I'm not holding out on you. I just know that nothing's been decided, whether we're in or out. I was surprised at how George announced it, because he told me about this last summer. Not about Disney, but just that they decided after all these years that they were gonna go do VII, VIII, and IX. We were just shocked. But it's so in the early stages… I thought he announced too early. I don't know what the timing was in terms of the Disney deal. But we don't know what's going on really. And when we do, believe me, we'll let you know! [Laughs.]
