Some Star Wars fans are not happy with the continuation trilogy in the Skywalker Saga. That’s no secret.
In fact, some people are equally bummed out about the Star next instalment in the Star Wars Stories spin-off series – and that was before the trailer even dropped this week.
However, it seems that the franchise icon himself, Mark Hamill, doesn’t really see what the big fuss is about, and even sounds as though he has very little time for anybody throwing shade at the newer Star Wars titles.
Asked about the reaction that SOLO had received at the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards this week by Entertainment Tonight, he quipped: ‘There’s divisiveness?! Get away’
And, sounding slightly exasperated at the constant negativity from some quarters of the community, he added: ‘This is the only franchise where, if you go on Twitter, they say, “If such and such happens, I am so out.” So now they’re speculating about things they don’t want to see.’
He added: ‘It surprises me, but, look, you can’t please everybody. You just have to try and make the best story you can. I was sort of taken aback by it, but, who knows? Not everybody likes broccoli. Some people like carrots or Brussels sprouts better. That’s just the way life is.’
Asked about his own feelings towards Ron Howard’s upcoming film based on Han Solo’s early life, he said: ‘I don’t know what anybody’s complaining about.’
More: Star Wars
Earlier this week the first trailer for the film was released, and quickly fans of Star Wars flooded the internet with their views.
Needless to say, due to the character’s iconic nature, there was a significantly negative reception as well as much hype.
But if the man who Force projected himself across the galaxy – another sore point with some fans – to face down Kylo Ren and save the day is OK with it, are you really going to go against him?
