Mark Hamill: ‘I’m Luke Starkiller, I’m Here To Rescue You!'”

Over the weekend, Mark Hamill dropped a “fun fact” about the famous rescue scene from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, where his character Luke has to rescue Princess Leia….

“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,” Hamill tweeted. “We had already shot it using the original line: ‘I’m Luke Starkiller, I’m here to rescue you!'”

Most of us were aware that George Lucas changed the name of the main character from Starkiller to Skywalker, but this re-shoot came as news to many.
