    As we inch closer to the opening of The Last Jedi, we are reaching the point where no new reveals are needed, our appetites are satisfied, and we are ready to see the movie. That brings us to a perfect piece by Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican who takes us back in time, not forward, delving into the 'head-canon' of Mark Hamill to validate Luke's current frame of mind.





    In one of the more unique and off the beaten path stories pertaining to The Last Jedi, Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican (who was a guest on our podcast The Resistance Broadcast today) spoke with Mark Hamill about how he mentally filled the 30 year gap that bridged Luke between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens/The Last Jedi.

    The backstory Hamill developed to help him get into Luke's current exiled state-of-mind is not a part of Lucasfilm's canon narrative at all, it was simply devised by the actor to help him channel a version of Luke he was unfamiliar with, so in a sense he had an open canvas:

    Here is the video of Breznican talking about Luke and his unexpected new frame of mind in The Last Jedi:






    So Hamill grabbed his paint brush, his pallet, and hit the canvas, creating a backstory for himself. What he came up with is pretty wild, and pretty heartbreaking, but please remember, this is not a part of the official story, just his way of coming to terms with Luke being in such a distraught place:

    Breznican points out that although this scenario is not a part of the story, Hamill wanted to check-in with director Rian Johnson to make sure the feelings created by this type of backstory paralleled where Luke needed to be in the film.

    A look inside the mind of Mark Hamill, clearly not mailing in a late-career performance for a paycheck, and as Breznican aptly puts it:

    The Last Jedi hits theaters in just 10 days! Now every time you see Luke on screen, if you didn't already know, you will be reminded of how much Mark Hamill put into his performance.
