I'm Luke Starkiller. I'm here to rescue you


"A death-white wasteland stretches from horizon to horizon. The tremendous heat of two huge twin suns settles on a lone figure, LUKE STARKILLER, a farm boy with heroic aspirations who looks much younger than his twenty-two years. His curly hair and baggy tunic give him the air of a simple, but lovable lad with a prize-winning smile."

Most fans of the popular sci-fi franchise will know that Hamill's Jedi Master character Luke Skywalker was originally supposed to have the surname Starkiller.

And Hamill has revealed in the first original movie 'A New Hope' the scene where Luke and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) rescue Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) had to be shot again.

The 66-year-old actor wrote on Twitter: "FUN FACT - the name change to Skywalker came late enough in production that we had to re-shoot the scene where I liberated the Princess from her cell.

"We had already shot it using the original line: 'I'm Luke Starkiller. I'm here to rescue you!'"

The original 'Star Wars' legend have all reprised their iconic roles in the current trilogy and in two instalments so far, both Han and Luke have died.

However, Fisher tragically passed away in December 2016 after shooting her final scenes for the eighth instalment 'The Last Jedi' and director Rian Johnson decided not to include her death in his movie, leaving J.J. Abrams to complete Fisher's 'Star Wars' saga.
