Mark Hamill’s Q&A Panel

Riley was fortunate enough to make it in time for the Mark Hamill Q&A Panel at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Not only was he able to get some pictures, he also heard some hilarious tales.

After getting funneled in amongst throngs of passionate Star Wars fans at the Excell center, London, I found myself seated in the presence of Luke Skywalker himself.

Mark Hamill.

The panel was more of a casual conversation than a Q&A. Being there was like listening to your funny, endearing uncle tell stories your parents never would about your family. The following are some highlights of Mark’s incredible tales as told from the Star Wars Celebration Stage. -Riley

Some of the questions/answers:

  • Episode VIII? He says he is contractually obligated to keep his trap shut. Lol.
  • What did he think of the secrecy around Star Wars in general?
    • “It can be really annoying and intrusive, you get the call sheets and there’s no names; everybody’s got a number! You’re number 11, you’re 33. You look at the call sheet and wonder who’s working, and go ‘I really loved number 22’s work. She’s twice as good as 11.’”
    • “They’re not doing it to annoy you. They just want the surprise to be in the movie theater, not the internet.”
  • What he knew of Arndt’s floating hand opening.
  • “What’s her last name?” (Hamill acted like he forgot Rey’s first name.)
  • Rey caught it?! She hasn’t even been to Dagobah for training!” (When discussing if he knew Rey was Force-sensitive.)
  • Is that a gravestone next to you?” He replies; “I don’t know! It looked like a rock to me!
  • He even promises new iconic lines about the force to come before the next trilogy is finished.

And remember, more Star Wars Celebration Europe details will be flooding the web soon enough. Until then enjoy Celebration!

Dave Filoni Reveals More about the Fate of Ahsoka at Star Wars Celebration Europe

Dave Filoni Reveals Ahsoka's Classic Journey

Not long ago in a country far, far away from Star Wars Celebration Europe

Like many fans around the world, I booted up my computer this morning to watch Star Wars Celebration Europe LIVE via YouTube, anxious to watch “Ahsoka’s Untold Tales” panel with Dave Filoni, Ashley Eckstein, and Pablo Hidalgo as hosted by David W. Collins.  As expected, more insight into story arcs featuring Ahsoka were presented during the panel, including a scoundrelous love interest from the depths of Coruscant on Level 1313, an Ahsoka/Rex team-up on Mandalore against Maul during the events of Revenge of the Sith, and discussion about the Ahsoka Lives movement.

What was not expected, however, was Dave Filoni’s closing statements to the audience present in the panel as well as to the world watching at home.  In fact, it seems that the gifted storyteller surprised even himself when he chose to reveal something most, if not all, of us thought would never happen.  Ahsoka may (and likely will) reappear in Rebels.  Bidding Ashley adieu at the close of the panel, Dave left her with something that might make her “long flight home” more bearable:

The only ‘spoilerific’ thing I will say…and I’m rarely, rarely, rarely, rarely, rarely ever affected by fan opinion.  I just can’t allow myself to be — you get the wrong story.  But I was very adamant after the Season Two finale that that was it for Ahsoka on Rebels.  I’m not going to say what form any story would take place, but after the reaction…
