Mark Hamill has recently come out to say he regrets his comments on how Rian Johnson handled Luke Skywalker in the film, Star Wars The Last Jedi. The iconic actor was more than critical about the writer, and directors take on the Jedi master.
Mark Hamill has remarked on the press tour several times that he did not agree with the direction. However in a recent interview with IMDB he made it clear that his stance has changed.
“I’ve had trouble accepting what [Rian Johnson] saw for Luke but again, I mean, I have to say, having seen the movie I was wrong,” Hamill said. “I think being pushed out of your comfort zone is a good thing because if I was just another benevolent Jedi training young padawans, we’ve seen it!”
Hamill then followed up with a tweet saying:
I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public.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 https://t.co/8ujJfBuEdV

Rian Johnson, who has previously directed for Breaking Bad and wrote and directed Looper, responded to the criticism he has been getting and the divide that The Last Jedi seems to have created.
The goal is never to divide or make people upset, but I do think the conversations that are happening were going to have to happen at some point if sw is going to grow, move forward and stay vital.
