VIDEO: Mark Hamill pitched evil Luke Skywalker to Star Wars director JJ Abrams

Star Wars fever has hit with the release of the trailer for the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

One of the noticeable things about the trailer was the lack of screen time for Mark Hamill, AKA Luke Skywalker.

Well, it has been revealed that Hamill pitched the idea of an evil Luke Skywalker to the Force Awakens director JJ Abrams.

Could it happen? Who knows. It would certainly make for an interesting twist.

Whatever Luke Skywalker does, we hope he’s still using the force enjoy a few pints...
