Fans can't get enough of Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford's friendship


Mark Hamill surprised fans at the SXSW Film Festival when he turned up alongside Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson on Monday.

A behind-the-scenes video clip from the set of The Last Jedi was posted on the Star Wars Legacy Twitter account, showing Mark Hamill getting emotional at the sight of his old friend Yoda and the legendary puppeteer behind him, Frank Oz.

Nintendo Switch Adds Friendly Firmware Update
Digital software purchases made from a PC or smart device will henceforth start downloading sooner than with the previous system. Settings made using this app will now be synced to the Nintendo Switch console even when it is in sleep mode.

It was a big deal for fans to see Mark Hamill return as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi previous year.

Susan Kirby, chief executive of the festival, said there were many examples of "Irish people and the Diaspora achieving eminence across many different art forms and disciplines worldwide".

Notre Dame, UConn are No. 1 seeds in women's NCAA Tournament
Notre Dame is another team to look at, as they came within single digits to CT when the teams played earlier in the season. If the Irish win, they will host either 8th seeded South Dakota St or 9th seeded Villanova in Sunday's 2nd round.

Ok so the photograph is a dead obvious giveaway but for those that don't recognise this man (shame on you!), Mark Hamill has been named as guest of honour for the inaugural St. Patrick's Festival 2018. "We're looking forward to welcoming him back "home" to celebrate our national holiday and St. Patrick's Festival with us". The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is working on a new trilogy outside of the traditional Skywalker saga and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on another series of movies outside of both those arenas. IMDB has an extended preview of the documentary, emphasizing the effort it took to bring the latest Star Wars adventure to life.

Mark also has family links to Ireland as his great-grandmother Elizabeth Keating was born in Kilkenny in the 1800s.

Debbie Bestwick, MBE, CEO of Team17 added, "At their best video games can take us to different worlds on wonderful journeys". According to the press release, Planet Alpha will launch this year for PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

A second family line connects Mark to the Harvey family, possibly from Donegal, who were starvation immigrants that settled in America. "The Force" will be strong at this weekend's Saint Patrick's Day Parade.
