Mark Hamill Doesn't Like Picking His Favorite Star Wars Movie

Especially with the controversial films "The Last Jedi" and "The Rise of Skywalker," it seems that everyone has an opinion on which of the nine main entries are the best and worst "Star Wars" films. Over the years, multiple actors who played iconic characters within the "Star Wars" galaxy have expressed their own opinions on the series, with Poe Dameron's Oscar Isaac, Anakin Skywalker's Hayden Christensen, and Qui Gon Jinn's Liam Neeson having previously shared their thoughts on the quality of various entries in the Star Wars canon.

As it turns out, Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, has also been asked for his opinion on the "Star Wars" films, but fans will have to go back to a long, long time ago to find it. Back in 1988, back when the only main "Star Wars" films that existed were those of the original trilogy, Hamill was interviewed about which entry he liked best.

Mark Hamill won't choose a favorite movie

The interview comes courtesy of the "Lucasfilm Fan Club" Issue 3 magazine (via Star Wars News Net), in which Mark Hamill was interviewed about his career in acting and looking back on what was then a decade since the first "Star Wars" film hit theaters.

However, one of the more interesting questions was about which of the three films at the time were Hamill's favorite. It's not a definitive statement on which he views to be the superior film, but it's still a sweet statement on how much he loves the entire trilogy.

"Each film is special in a different way," Hamill said. "It's like saying, 'Which is your favorite kid?' It's hard to pick a favorite. The first one was new and fresh and different. The second one, I think, it tried to utilize the fact that you thought you knew what was coming and I liked that. Each one had its own personality and character and it it's hard for me to say, 'That's my favorite.'"

It's nice to know that Hamill is a fan of the original trilogy, although much later, he would go on to make less favorable comments about the sequel trilogy.
