Mark Hamill "Regrets" Voicing His Criticisms Of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI; Praises Director Rian Johnson

Following a pretty rough interview in which Mark Hamill ripped the direction of his character, Luke Skywalker, in The Last Jedi, the actor has since taken to Twitter to apologize for his scathing remarks.

Star Wars legend Mark Hamill said on Tuesday that he regrets voicing his criticism of how his character, Luke Skywalker, was written for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The actor wrote on social media that he should've kept the creative differences between him and writer/director Rian Johnson private, and then praised both the Johnson and the film. "I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public," Hamill tweeted alongside an image of the actor clarifying comments he made about the film and Johnson. "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" 

Prior to The Last Jedi hitting theaters, Hamill, on numerous occasions, made public his criticism of the direction of his classic Jedi character. In an interview with Vanity Fair back in May, Hamill recalled telling Johnson, "I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you've made for this character."

More recently, however, a more scathing interview from Hamill has gone public. In that interview, Hamill specifically cited criticism with Luke "giving up" instead of trying to "right that wrong." In that same interview, he admitted it was not longer "my Luke Skywalker" (or the one from George Lucas' Star Wars) and said "I had to do what Rian wanted me to do because it serves the story well." All that being said, Hamill did acknowledge that "Rian was the exact man that they need for this job." Of course, most outlets chose to focus on the negative click-baiting headline, which is likely what prompted a response from Hamill on Twitter.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been met with praise from critics, though fans are a bit mixed in their reactions. Despite becoming the most divisive film in Star Wars franchise history, The Last Jedi is dominating the box office.
