Earlier this summer, Disney was proud to open Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim California, and one of the first to visit the Star Wars theme park was Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.

Though it’s been a while since his trip to Galaxy’s Edge, the Star Wars legend continues to share photos from his trip. Last, last week, Hamill decided to give a review on the Star Wars theme park’s blue milk. Now, the actor’s busy sharing his thoughts on a bust of Luke Skywalker.

Hamill is pretty much aware that the bust is supposed to be made out of his likeness, however, the Star Wars legend thinks it looks more like macho English actor Oliver Reed.

“Saw this bust on display at #GalaxysEdge at #Disneyland. I know it's supposed to be me, but I think it looks more like Oliver Reed. Who do you think it resembles, besides me? #LovableLugWithAHuggableMug,” Hamill wrote on his post.

The Star Wars actor’s Twitter followers seem to agree, naming actors and celebrities that look more like the man in the bust than Mark Hamill. Some of the names that have been mentioned in the thread include Orson Welles and Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage.

The bust might have a bit of Luke Skywalker’s scraggly look in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but it does kind of miss the mark, giving the Jedi Master a larger nose and a grittier face shape than what we’ve seen in the sequel trilogy.

Luke Skywalker is set to appear in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and we’re excited to see what kind of form he’s going to take in the film.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres December 20, 2019.
