Mark Hamill on Luke Missing Han’s Death in Star Wars: The Force Awakens
We were so looking forward to the long-awaited reunion of Han (Harrison Ford), Chewie (Peter Mayhew), Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Luke (Mark Hamill) in The Force Awakens that Solo’s untimely end at the hands of his dastardly son, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), hit all the harder when the realization set in that we would never again get the chance to see Han and Luke share screen time together. We weren’t the only ones disappointed by this; in a recent interview at Star Wars Celebration, Hamill said he felt Han’s death would have had more impact if Luke were there to witness his demise.

And, in what is likely a tongue-in-cheek reference to Monty Python, Ford said on The Star Wars Show that Han is “not dead” after all, that he’s “just resting.”
