Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill sees a wealth of storytelling potential in the Star Wars Galaxy for films that explore all kinds of genres, but he also has a warning for Disney's aggressive Star Wars film release schedule - pace yourselves.

"Well, there shouldn't be [a limit to the storytelling], as it's a canvas that's so infinite," Hamill explained to CinemaBlend. "With the standalone films they can all have their own identity. Rogue One can be gritty, and like a war film... I'm assuming, I don't know, but I would assume that Solo will be more comedic-ly oriented...because he's a rogue, a scoundrel, and a gambler, and a womanizer and all those things. So I think the advantage of the standalone films is that they don't have to follow the formula of a trilogy, so they can establish their premise, get it on, get it done and get out leaving the audience wanting more. So there's infinite possibilities."

"I would say they should pace themselves cause they don't want to oversaturate," he continued. "I'd say to Disney, 'Really? Five months after we come out, this movie comes out? Can't you at least wait til Christmas?' But they're so, they've got things booked, they're doing Marvel, and their own movies, so that's beyond [my level]."
