Mark Hamill defends the little Anakin Skywalker and the prequel trilogy
The actor is said to be angry at the treatment of the very young Jake Lloyd
The prequel trilogy of Star Wars, arrived in salt cinematigrafiche 16 years after Return of The Jedi, the last film of the original saga, is known to have been accepted by the fans, especially from the more orthodox, with a moderate enthusiasm, and in some cases coldness and detachment.
A large group of Star Wars fans have metaphorically torn garments, especially in the face of the first film in the prequel trilogy, The phantom menace, which seems to have struck the foundations of the adoration of the three masterpieces of the classic trilogy products to horse between years ’70 and ’80.
The interpretation of the small Anakin Skywalker (the future Darth Vader) by the actor Jake Lloyd has proved to be one of the privileged targets on the part of the fans more frantic and unhappy, second only to the ever loved Jar Jar Binks (although the latter was a character in the “dummy” result of the computer graphics).
In a recent interview with Heroic Hollywood Mark Hamill, the iconic figure of the interpreter of Luke Skywalker, has come out firmly in defence of the colleague Jake Lloyd and the Star Wars prequel trilogy in general.
I couldn't believe some of the things they wrote about the prequel. I mean really, beyond “I like Not” but even ” You ruined my childhood!”
They are still angry for the way they treated Jake Lloyd. He was only ten years old, that boy, and he has done exactly what George wanted him to. Believe me, I understand well its interpretation is a little awkward.
How not to give reason to Mark Hamill? It will also be true that the Episode I: The Phantom Menace has very disappointed the expectations of fans of Star Wars, but this disappointment should not allow anyone to criticize so harshly of a child of 10 years, and in those moments, there lived a fairy tale and a dream rather than an experience of working as professional actors much older than him.
After all, it is like shooting on the Red Cross given that the career of Jake Lloyd is practically born and died with his interpretation of the little Anakin, a burden that has come to crush every hope of success of the young actor.
Even Mark Hamill has been through a similar experience following his role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, a role which for many years was not able to shake it off but he still knew how to stand for 40 years, although his career has not benefited much.
The difference between him and the little Lloyd is that Hamill had the strong back of the adult person to withstand so much pressure, while the small actor has endured the mockery and bad criticism that perhaps some fans, a little too down in the part, would potutto save a child of just 10 years.
