Despite all the awesome marketing materials that Lucasfilm have released for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI there’s still so much mystery surrounding the plot of the movie. Will Rey turn to the dark side, will her true parentage be revealed and will Chewie have a chew on one of those pesky Porgs if he needs a snack? All will be revealed in a mere matter of weeks my young padawans…

What was awesome to see in one of the latest trailers was Luke Skywalker’s return to the Millenium Falcon and in an interview with EW about the scene he opened up about how emotional and nostalgic it made him feel:

“I’m telling you, I didn’t expect to have the reaction I had. I was there with my family, with [my children] Nathan and Griffin and Chelsea and my wife Marilou, and [Lucasfilm] asked if the documentary crew could be there when I came back on the Millennium Falcon. I mean, this was not on the shooting day. I was just street clothes and going to visit that set. And I said, “Sure.” It was sort of like visiting an old house that you lived in when you were a kid. I mean, I just welled up with emotion and I said, “I need to be by myself.”

Hamill also went on to talk about how the production crew managed to recreate the Falcon’s cockpit to perfection while director was similarly in awe at the gravity of the scene when it was filmed:

“God, I remember so vividly getting that shot of him turning on the lights in the Falcon cockpit. And we all kind of looked at each other, just like, “Oh my God.”
