The franchise stars visited a theatre to watch the trailer after grabbing lunch together while filming the movie. Mark and his late costar had not seen the trailer yet so they explained to the theatre manager they were in the film and asked if they could be let into the movie to view it.

"We went in and we watched it," he said during the Star Wars Celebration. "It was so early they didn't have John Williams' score. They didn't have very many special effects finished at all... It made a real impression on me because we hadn't seen any of the footage."

Mark Hamill Reveals That The Trailer For ‘ Star Wars ’ Was Actually Heckled The First Time He Saw It. “At the end of the trailer , it said, ‘A billion light years in the making. And it’s coming to your galaxy this summer.’

And while Hamill felt positively about the trailer, the audience was not quick to embrace it.

"At the end of the trailer, it said, 'A billion light years in the making. And it's coming to your galaxy this summer.' Big explosion," he added. "And somebody in the balcony yelled out, 'Yeah, and it's coming to the late show about two weeks after that.' Nobody enjoys a well-placed, snarky remark more than I do. So we both laughed, but after we laughed, we kind of went, 'Uh oh'."

Hamill will next reprise his role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is due out in December (17), and he reveals he is grateful to be in the new movies because he is recognised by a new generation of fans.

"Their parents, who were young children when the movies came out, would get very excited and push them toward me (and say), 'Look who it is! It's Luke Skywalker!' And you look at these five and six-year-old kids, just horror stricken, 'Oh my god! What happened to this guy? He really let himself go'," he said. "To have us come back, show that the ageing process is natural, makes me less self-conscious."
