Star Wars: The Last Jedi recently celebrated its fifth anniversary since being released in cinemas and fast forward to today, there's no denying that a lot of folks are still divided by the second entry of Disney's sequel trilogy. While critics loved Rian Johnson's visual spectacle, longtime Star Wars fans thought they were watching an entirely different film that didn't carry the Skywalker saga's overall tone.

One of Episode VIII's lead stars Mark Hamill has been overly critical of the film and over the last couple of years, there's been this notion that the Luke Skywalker actor hated working on the project. His creative issues with Johnson are even well-documented.

Now, to commemorate TLJ's fifth anniversary, the Star Wars icon admits that if given the opportunity, he would've done things differently. When a fan asked the 71-year-old actor on Twitter what he feels about the film, Hamill said that his feelings about it changed but chose not to go into detail. Check out his response below:

In other news, it was officially confirmed that Damon Lindelof and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy's upcoming Star Wars film will take place right after The Rise of Skywalker. As it stands, key details about the franchise's return to the big screen have not been disclosed.

Here's to hoping though that Lindelof and Obaid-Chinoy will somehow be able to craft a less-polarizing flick. But then again, Star Wars fans are some of the most opinionated and passionate fans in the world so I guess future projects won't be safe from criticism.
