SXSW Film Recap: The Director and the Jedi Q&A
“We’re here to talk about Brigsby Bear,” Mark Hamill said. There were probably more people in the packed Paramount than had seen Hamill's quirky 2017 comedy, but the loyal audience that grew up with the Star Wars: The Last Jedi star would have sat through an hour of his knock-knock jokes.
