Disney CEO Bob Iger continues to hype up Star Wars: The Last Jedi, saying this is Mark Hamill's best performance to date as Luke Skywalker. Hamill made his much anticipated return to the famed Jedi role ever so briefly in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he'll have a much bigger role to play this winter. As evident by the first poster or the teaser trailer, Luke is not going to be a mere cameo character this time around. Instead, he'll be featured prominently alongside new franchise lead Rey (Daisy Ridley).

Ever since he turned around in The Force Awakens, fans have been wondering to what level Hamill would be able to return to. Both Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford made seamless transitions back into their Star Wars roles in 2015, and it is expected for Hamill to be able to pull that off this year as well. However, he may not only pull it off, but may deliver his best performance.

Hamill was honored today at D23 as a Disney Legend and as part of the ceremony, Disney CEO Iger talked about the level of performance he delivers in The Last Jedi. As shared on Twitter by Yahoo's Marcus Errico, Iger is giving it his all to hype up the movie and Luke's return even more.
