SALT LAKE CITY — Actor Mark Hamill, a.k.a. Luke Skywalker, appeared on the ABC News show "Popcorn with Peter Travers" on Thursday to discuss the new Star Wars film "The Last Jedi" and tell stories from his years working in the Star Wars universe.

The actor showed off his impressive impersonation skills by telling a story about legendary British actor Sir Alec Guinness, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original three Star Wars films, revealing that the actor claimed he took the role of the Jedi master because he'd "always wanted to play a wizard in a children's film."

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" opens Dec. 15, 2017.

The Clean Cut is a regular feature that highlights family friendly vidoes.
