Harrison Ford honors Carrie Fisher at Mark Hamill's Walk of Fame induction

Hamill spoke with Variety recently after earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he was asked who should play Luke Skywalker if there were going to be a movie that told us a story that we had yet to see about the farm boy turned Rebel hero.

Hamill made the most of his time here and even made the dream of a lifelong Star Wars fan come true.

A new Star Wars: The Last Jedi special feature from the upcoming blu-ray release shows the Luke Skywalker actor as he reunites with the pointy-eared Jedi Master, and he finds himself off balance. This year, for the very first time, St. Patrick's Festival appoints an International Guest of Honour.

"The Last Jedi" actor is set to make an appearance at the National Festival Parade on March 17 in Dublin, where he will watch the parade from the Presidential stand.

The new honourary role "has been created to celebrate the achievements of an individual from the worlds of business, the arts, or the media, who has a special connection or significant affinity with Ireland".

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.

It was a big deal for fans to see Mark Hamill return as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi a year ago. "We're looking forward to welcoming him back "home" to celebrate our national holiday and St. Patrick's Festival with us".

A film insider said: "It's a huge secret, but Jabba is returning to the Star Wars universe". Just please, no more prequels about characters we already know and love. These are Mark's great-great-grandparents.
