Watch: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Red Carpet Premiere


Disney and J.J. Abrams held the Red Carpet premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens earlier tonight. Check out the video feed above.

You can jump to the 1:16:16 mark to hear from Mark Hamill who talks about why we haven't see Luke Skywalker.

"Well, you'll see. In two hours time, we'll have a nice coversation," Hamill responded to questioning.

Hamill was also asked about how this must have been the easiest press tour for him (as he wasn't involved).

"They are doing the heavy lifting because of the marketing decision to keep my character mysterious," Hamill said. "Which is great, and I am having a good time, but I have to shhhh."

Mark Hamill also answered a fan question regarding what was difficult about returning to the character of Luke, with Hamill answering it was trying to find out what the character has been doing for the past 30 years. Hamill also said he didn't want to revisit the past with Luke, but use the character to usher in a new story.
