Luke Skywalker Tells Fans to Lower their 'Star Wars Episode 7' Expectations

Mark Hamill tells fans to lower their Star Wars: The Force Awakens expectations

Mark Hamill asks for Darth Vader fans to lower their expectations in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie: "It's just a movie". If there is one movie this year that have extremely high expectations, it's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not only is it the first Star Wars movie in over 10 years but, it's the first film to come from Disney without any involvement from the Star Wars creator, George Lucas. Recently, Mark Hamill told Hero Complex about the back stage security and the fear of movie leaks.
“First of all, the security. We had problems before with people leaking stuff, but I was saying to them, ‘Is it really necessary to put on this giant robe with a hood that hangs down to your chest to go from my trailer to the soundstage?’ They said, ‘Drones.’ I said, ‘You’re kidding! Really?'”
But, Mark Hamill says that people have extremely high expectations and should really lower them. “Believe me, it will be here before you know it,” he said to the fans who are really excited about the movie. “Forget about it, that’s my advice. Look forward to all the summer movies. I’m telling you, it’s just a movie. These people that build it up in their minds like it’s going to be the second coming of, I don’t know what — they’re bound to be disappointed.” Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18th 2015 and also sees returning stars Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (A Most Violent Year), Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina), John Boyega (Attack the Block) Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness), Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Miltos Yerolemou (Game of Thrones), Max von Sydow (The Exorcist), Jessica Henwick (Spirit Warriors), Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day) and newcomers Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen.
