One of the greatest and smartest things that Disney and Lucasfilm has done with the Star Wars franchise is bring the past into the present. Since the day The Force Awakens began filming and all the buzz started, it was obvious that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford couldn’t be happier to return to the franchise they were a part of together so many years ago. That has only grown over the last two years, as these actors continuously participate in fun gags with fans, with the bulk of that coming from Luke Skywalker himself.
Just a few weeks ago the official Force for Change charity campaign was announced, which included tons of fan prizes, just as it did with The Force Awakens. The initial video was a fun little back-and-forth between Hamill and new star Daisy Ridley, as they announced the event and the kind of geeky prizes fans can win through donation. Not too long after came a pranking video from John Boyega, as he surprised fans at Star Wars Celebration. Now, the role of prankster goes to Hamill, and it couldn’t be more perfect.
Just like all of those who take part in these videos, they go full force with it and give fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Could you imagine being one of these fans as they’re surprised by Luke mother freaking Skywalker? I would definitely fan out a little too hard. Anyway, check out the video below! After doing so, let me know how much of a Star Wars fan you are and how absolutely pumped you are for Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, which will hit theaters on December 15th, 2017.
