As if to say “Yes, I really liked Star Wars: The Last Jedi!” (in spite of fan speculation that he didn’t, based entirely on his creative disagreement with how his character should have been handled and nothing else), Mark Hamill took to Twitter to joke about how one person caught in a cast photograph was already looking for a place to complain about the movie on the internet.
Hamill took a moment to make fun of some of the hot takes made against the latest Star Wars movie by sharing a cast photo taken at the movie’s premiere, which was met with an incredibly warm reception. But one guy, unfortunately, had the mistake of being in the photograph at the worst possible moment, leading to Hamill to improvise a joke based on the situation:
Even as the cast felt overjoyed after the triumphant premiere of #TheLastJedi, the guy in the upper-left corner was already silently composing a mean-tweet about how he thought the movie SHOULD have been. pic.twitter.com/jmETR3dgD9

While Star Wars: The Last Jedi will no doubt remain a controversial film among the fans for quite some time, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Hamill is genuine in saying that he liked the final product in spite of his personal misgivings while filming it. If Episode IX sticks the landing and features Luke prominently as a Force Ghost, then it’s likely that the film’s harshest critics will be more forgiving of the movie as time marches on.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is still playing in theaters, and is now available on Digital HD. The film will be coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on March 27. The movie’s cast includes Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Benicio Del Toro as “DJ”, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Jimmy Vee as R2-D2.
‘Star Wars’: 5 Theories For ‘Episode IX’
