More videos coming out of D23! Access Hollywood was able to spend a little time talking to Daisy Ridley and John Boyega about their characters, Rey and Finn, fan reaction to the behind-the-scenes video for TLJ, and what we can expect from them going forward in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Access Hollywood also chatted with Mark Hamill about becoming a Disney Legend, and what Rian Johnson is like as a director taking on Star Wars… and Luke Skywalker.
Mark Hamill became a Disney Legend today during a ceremony marking the 30th Anniversary of the highest honor one can receive from Disney. You can see video of the presentations for Mark Hamill and his fellow honoree, Carrie Fisher, here. Below you will find a selection of official images of Mr. Hamill taken during the event.
Today, during a ceremony at the D23 Expo, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher officially became Disney Legends. Of course, Star Wars fans have always known they were legends. Still, it’s a thrill to see them recognized with the highest honor Disney can bestow. Disney CEO, Bob Iger, introduced both honorees. Sadly, Billie Lourd could not be there to accept the award on her mother’s behalf, but she did send a letter which was read to the audience by Mr. Iger.
You can see both heartwarming presentations below:

In a ceremony at the D23 Expo earlier today, George Lucas had the distinct honor of becoming a Disney Legend. Lucas has had a long working relationship with Disney — and he is a life-long fan — so it was only fitting that he receive recognition for his collaborations and accomplishments.
After being introduced by Disney CEO Bob Iger, and joined onstage by C-3PO and R2-D2, Lucas gave gracious acceptance speech — which you can see in the video below:
