Mark Hamill is always open about his thoughts, including what he thought about Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It’s been no secret that Hamill wasn’t the biggest fan of where Rian Johnson’s story took his character, which he referred to as being unexpected.
Recently, however, Mark Hamill has had a sudden change of heart – clarifying his earlier comments by stating that they were pre-mature and misconstrued. Many came to the conclusion that Disney and Lucasfilm told him to backtrack on his comments, seeing as how they might be damaging the brand and future films.
Mark Hamill himself clarified that nobody at Disney or Lucasfilm has ever told him what to say in a Tweet:
I'm really enjoying the conversations about #TheLastJedi both Pro AND Con. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion-but let me make one thing perfectly clear: Neither @Disney or #Lucasfilm has complained or told me what to say- EVER. #PeriodEndOfStory ❤️-mh

This tweet is a clear response to the one Mark Hamill made earlier this week where he stated that he regretted sharing his opinion:
I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public.Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private. All I wanted was to make good movie. I got more than that- @rianjohnson made an all-time GREAT one! #HumbledHamill https://t.co/8ujJfBuEdV

While some may have thought his clarification was awkward and unwarranted, it truly has put fans at ease who thought that Disney was making Hamill clarify his thoughts.
