[ # ] Mark Hamill wanted Luke Skywalker to go to the Dark Side
July 16th, 2021 under Jimmy Fallon, Star Wars

Everyone loves that Luke Skywalker followed the light and didn’t go dark like his father. However, if the actor had his way, it would have been a different story.

Yesterday when the beloved actor was on The Tonight Show, he told Jimmy Fallon he went to George Lucas with that idea. “I pitched that to George because I thought that’s the way things were going in Empire [Strikes Back]. I’ve got the gloved hand, and I was dressed all in black,” he said. “But actually, George said, ‘No, it’s a fairytale for children. Luke is virtuous. He’s the good guy.'”

Do you wish Hamill got his way?

Now back to Luke’s severed hand, the actor also revealed something you didn’t know about it. In the original opening to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the movie was going to start off with the appendage floating in the air holding a lightsaber. Then when it hit the atmosphere, the skin and bones were supposed to melt away, leaving just the lightsaber to float into nothingness. That means he would have opened and closed the movie. However, it did not happen.

While Hamill is very fluent in Star Wars, the same cannot be said about his knowledge of two of the other roles that he plays. Those roles are The Joker and Skeletor. Watch him fail at answering those questions.

His getting those answers wrong made me adore him even more. Seriously, besides Darth Vader, who doesn’t love him?
