Here's The Luke And Han Solo Reunion Mark Hamill Wanted In The Force Awakens

Don't we all wish the two space-faring buddies would've met up again in Episode VII?

Star Wars buzz is all around us this weekend as the announcements, reveals, and interviews of Star Wars Celebration rage on. Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill was, of course, in attendance, and helped usher in a big reveal: the teaser trailer for The Last Jedi.

With their eyes glued on the first look video, fans couldn't help but remember that one franchise favorite wouldn't be appearing in the upcoming flick. And Hamill had something to say about it.

Speaking with Fandango, Hamill revealed that he really wanted Luke and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) to reunite in The Force Awakens. As Star Wars fans know, Han met an untimely and especially tragic demise in the movie. Hamill dished up his thoughts on how he didn't get to interact with his best friend Han before he died, and how if he did, the reunion would perfectly connect to The Last Jedi.

"I was reading [the script] and thought if Leia is trying to mentally contact me and she's not successful, she'll rush to his aid," Hamill said. "She'll get close to him and then get into some dire situation and that's when I show up for a big 'yay.' [I] save her life, then we rush to Han and are in the same position that Rey and Finn and Chewie are. Too late to save him, but witness it. Because it would carry so much emotional resonance into the next film. For us—his wife [and] his best friend—to witness. Instead of two characters that have known him, what, 20 minutes? Well, [except] Chewie. But still... I thought that was a great missed opportunity."

Hamill also admitted that, as he's told J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson, he has "so many really terrible ideas" for the Star Wars franchise that he'd love to share. "Out of 100, maybe you'll find one you kind of like," he said. "After [The Last Jedi] comes out, i'm making a list of the more outrageous things I suggested, because I look back now and go, 'What was I thinking?'"

Who knew Mark Hamill was such a dreamer? Luckily for us, the interviewer captured Hamill's vision on film. Take a look below:

Fans shared thoughts of their own on Hamill's thought-up reunion. One Twitter user even chimed in to say that Han never actually died in The Force Awakens, and that the pair could see each other again in The Last Jedi. "Han Solo is NOT dead," the fan wrote in response to Davis' video tweet. "Next thing you'll try to tell me is Elvis has actually left the building? No."

Stranger things have happened in the Star Wars universe than a character coming back to life, and plot twists seem to be the series' "thing," so perhaps we'll all be surprised when The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15. While we wait (not so) patiently for the film to releaes, find out why the it will blow us all away.
