To this writer's knowledge we haven't seen Mark Hammill holding a lightsaber in quite a few years. We're all well aware that the 62 year old will be reprising the role which made him famous when J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII hits theatres next year, but in the meantime Hamill has been lending a hand at Disney's Star Wars Weekends event.
The trimmed down star agreed to a promo shot with a fellow screen great. Check out the new found friendship below:
Not the most glamorous shot you're going to see today, but Hamill is looking much more rugged and battle weary than perhaps we've ever seen. Abrams clearly wants him beefed up and bearded with shooting now under way, possibly even as we speak!
Happy to have seen this or would you rather have waited for an official still? Let us know below.
[Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) opens December 18th next year
