    Seriously, How does this image and post make Mark Hamill out to be such a bad guy? What if, in TFA, they(mainly Leia) discover the general area where Luke is, but it's in a rough, mostly unknown part of the galaxy(Kessel?) where few know their way around. But Leia knows a guy ... enter Lando. They find Luke, and get to Starkiller base at the last moment. Their ship gets shot down by a Tie Fighter and then they have to hike it across the SK tundra to get to the Falcon. They get there just as the Rey/Kylo battle is ending. Crumbling SK base is just about to swallow up Finn when Luke force-catches him and floats him over to
    Chewie. Then you would essentially get that scene in that image with Chewie in place of Han Solo. It would only be a few seconds of screen time, and would not really impact the plot of TFA - though clearly it would probably have led to a much different Episode VIII.

    I think this is more likely what MH is alluding to. Not that he wanted the ST to be about the original cast.

    It's been created who doesn't like Sequel trilogy, and is known for creating division. I don't think he knew who created it.

    Case in point.

    It's not that the creator of the image doesn't like the ST, it's that he's kind of a colossal asshat.

    I don't know why he wanted them to be together and knew they wouldn't the moment he signed on. This is part of the problem with the the ST and some fans. High expectations that the old cast was gonna be hanging out and doing things. When it was never gonna be the case.

    I didn't expect it so I never had a problem with them not being together. But that may happen in TROS though, or at least that's the rumor. Though it may be a flashback.

    But to the original OP. I don't think it makes Mark a bad guy, but sometimes I feel he fans the flames a little.

    Of course MH its not wrong from posting that image on twitter. He can post whatever he wants.

    In my case I never had that desire (that a lot of fans must had I think) to see all the gang together once again. We have all the Classic Trilogy for that, if you want to see them just rematch the CT. The Sequel Trilogy its focusing in the new characters in most of the part (Rey, Kylo, Finn and Poe), and I think they are succeeding.

    I'm lost on this one...

    HOW does Mark Hamill posting a photo of the gang together in the cockpit make him a bad guy??

    I realize that he's something of a troll, but why the disdain from fans??

    Those are serious questions, by the way...

    It's the source of the image.
    Not the image itself.

    Gotcha...I couldn't see the tweets due to my work firewall.

    Personally speaking, I don't care who made that photo, because it's the only way we're going to see them together ever again, and I just looked at a list of comments on Twitter about it, and saw someone mention "Alt-Right"...some people should have REAL problems to be upset about.

    A guy who dislikes the ST made a photo of the original gang together in their later years, and a division of the fandom got pissed...wow.

    It doesnt make him a bad guy, but it does play right into a hateful part of fandom.

    See, this is what I don't understand.

    There have been literally THOUSANDS of photoshopped-fan-head-canon-wish-list photos for the last 5 years, and some Twitter guy put together a picture of what he wanted to see, and because Mark Hamill likely also agrees that it would've been nice to see....part of the fandom's heads exploded.

    It's....so bizarre.

    As a society, we're doomed.

    I take it then didn't see what his (original image creator) previous tweets where.. f*** he called the title The Rise of Soywalker. Then promptly says "soyry if this offends you." Mark wasn't being a bad guy it was that Steven person. How can you say this Steven has good intentions after reading that?

    It does not make him a bad guy but I do feel he is knowlingly or not feeding trolls like Geeks and Gamers. He has the right to say these things and I have the right to an exasperated groan every time he pulls something like this.

    I don't really care who made the photo. I think if Mark likes it and reposted it so be it. The guy who made the photo can say what he wants doesn't change how I fell about SW.

    Oh yes, I saw it and scrolled right on by...

    So what, he doesn't like the ST??

    THIS is nothing new if you've been around here for more than a day...some people hate it, and that sucks, but you can't please everyone.

    "The Rise of Soywalker"...lol, oh boy...that's really a grown-up statement from him Please tell me that there has been NOTHING more offensive said here than that.

    After strolling these halls for 5 years, that's just more of the same "I didn't get MY movie" whining that I've tuned out and dismissed as repeated temper tantrums because their Christmas bike was the wrong color.

    THIS ONE GUY on Twitter doesn't like the ST...criticizes it repeatedly...and assembles the OT cast's likenesses together in one photo because that's what he wanted...sounds like what goes on here a LOT.

    You'll note that I may have become pretty thick skinned and even jaded toward those that constantly stomp their feet and scream that they HATE the ST and LFL "ruined it for them", and as a result I shake my head and wonder what kind of boring lives those people have that causes them to be so whipped-up by such nonsense...it's confounding to me...completely.

    These are movies for crying out loud. Maybe we should be concerned about important things, like if and when there will be an Ep X, instead of fixating on one Twitter dude that is still whining like a little kid about how jilted he is...because honestly, nobody cares.

    You give him the attention, you feed the troll, and that's EXACTLY why he's there. When will people learn this?

    I personally don't waste one second of my precious time on contemplating his existence on this planet, but like Mark, I actually enjoy the photo because we should have seen that (IMHO) for even just a moment...but I don't give a damn about who made it, and I just shrug my shoulders at his tantrum and walk away, because I have better things to be concerned about...and everyone else should too.

    I don't get it.

    Why are people so keen on seeing them together? Of course it would be nice and cool, but if you want to see them together, just go watch ESB or ROTS.

    It's the same thing with music 'fans' when their favorite artist puts out a new album, and they are asking 'why didn't you make songs that sound like your previous album?'

    Having seen your pre-edit posting;

    I understand that you DO care about it, but he doesn't.

    Does it offend you that he doesn't share your view? Walk past him like he doesn't exist and don't be one of those that keeps fuel on the fire...let his burn out.
