It's been 33 years since Mark Hamill rescued his father and defeated the Emperor in Return of the Jedi. He's getting ready for his role in the upcoming Episode VII. Since Lucasfilm is now owned by Disney, Hamill is at Disney World in Florida to make appearances for Star Wars Weekend. He's also working hard to ensure that he's in good fighting shape, as he explained to the Orlando Sentinel:
I’ve altered my diet. I’ve started working out. There’s that. But on the film itself: I toured the departments, I’ve looked at wardrobe, and I saw the creature shop. I went around and met all the cast people, saw the technicians working on some new things.
Of course, Hamill isn't as young as he used to be. So he's training intensively with Mickey Mouse, a Jedi known for his prowess with the force and a lightsaber.
