  • Actor Harrison Ford embraces actor Mark Hamill before unveiling his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles California U.S

If, for some reason, you need more incentives to purchase the digital version, look no further than the feature-length documentary, The Director and the Jedi.

Hamill is one of the most fan-favorite characters in the current "Star Wars" trilogy, and many consider his performance in "The Last Jedi" as his finest performance ever.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been released as a digital download and it includes a music-focused special bonus feature according to director Rian Johnson.

Williams has teased a potential retirement from the franchise following next year's Episode IX. It stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Adam Driver. Aside from The Force Awakens ($248.8 million), the others are The Avengers ($207.4 million) and Jurassic World ($208.8 million).

What Is "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" About? Mark Hamill, star of the stage and screen, and known for his Star Wars role of Luke Skywalker, will be welcomed back to Ireland with open arms.

"You are with me through thick and thin and the highs and the lows and everywhere in between", Hamill told the cheering crowd as he collected his star.

Whether they add in extra scenes, change a film's ending, or simply turn the whole thing black and white, there's always something to be gained from a fresh take on a familiar film. The good news is, besides being the first Star Wars title available in 4K, the digital version will also support Dolby Vision for HDR and Dolby Atmos - at least on Vudu but it doesn't make sense that Microsoft and FandangoNow wouldn't offer up the same version.

Fáilte Ireland's Head of Festivals, Ciara Sugrue, added: "The Force will truly be with us on March 17 and we are delighted to hear that Mark Hamill will be joining us as the first ever St Patrick's Festival global guest of honour".

Also in this version, Johnson cuts straight from Luke with his head in his hands to Leia aboard a Resistance ship many light years away in the same posture, showing that there is still an emotional connection between the estranged twins.

"It just wasn't a Luke I understood", he said, explaining that he came up with his own "backstories" for the character to reconcile his idea of Luke with Johnson's plot. A second family line connects Mark to the Harvey family, possibly from Donegal, who were starvation immigrants that settled in America.
