"Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private", he tweeted. "I got more than that - [Rian Johnson] made an all-time GREAT one!"

Phase one of Tourism Ireland's Star Wars campaign "trilogy" was unveiled in early December, in advance the film's global release, with phase two of the campaign, featuring Mark Hamill - aka Luke Skywalker, released earlier this month.

He's not my Luke Skywalker, but I had to do what Rian wanted me to do because it serves the story well'. I'm sorry. Well, in this version, see, I'm talking about the George Lucas Star Wars'.

'This is the next generation of Star Wars, so I nearly had to think of Luke as another character, maybe he's Jake Skywalker.

Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi ahead. But soon, Hamill was back to adding fuel to the fan fire, claiming "He's not my Luke Skywalker anymore". Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Star Wars franchise as we learn it.
