Mark Hamill is worried the internet will spoil Star Wars Episode VII

A few months ago, we wrote a piece opining that J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII was going to run the serious risk of being spoiled by the internet well before anything was actually shot or released. Since then, just about everyone in Hollywood has been reported as having a role in the film, casting sheets have ben stolen and posted online and even the script itself has been Instagramed for the world to see.

Mark Hamill shares our fears, as he mentioned in a Reddit AMA this past week that he’s worried the internet is going to spoil the new Star Wars film and take away the surprise.

“Im good at keeping secrets. Especially when the goal it to maximize the enjoyment of the audience. That’s why I’m worried about episode 7, they’re going after casting sheets!” he wrote. “Im [sic] trying to keep the surprises for the movie, not for the internet. I hate spoilers.”

This AMA by Hamill ironically came just hours after a fake mark Hamill began trolling Reddit with fake Star Wars rumors about how J.J. Abrams was crossing over the worlds of Star Wars and Star Trek. Hamill’s fears, and anyone who shares them, are valid as this is the first Star Wars movie to exist in the social media world we live in.

So while Hamill himself is looking to keep details of the film a secret, the same cannot be said for everyone else.

    First of all any true ultra passionate fan would know that wasn’t Mark Hamill and I am very surprised nobody said anything at the event. I am not surprised as I know how much he likes surprises and that he is good at keeping secrets after all he told noone not even his wife that Vader was his father.
