Living legend, Mark Hamill marked Star Wars Day through his verified Twitter account; the actor, best known for his portrayal of ‘Luke Skywalker‘ in the groundbreaking fantasy film series, of course, was highly quick to celebrate May 4 that comes after the famous catchphrase “May the force be with you“.
The star became sociable on the day, which is celebrated annually by fans of the series, released a TBT 1970s movie poster and admitted that the film series, created by George Lucas, was his one and only chance to be a part of a movie that has its own day. Underneath the poster seeing him alongside Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, Hamill wrote:
“I’m beginning to accept the fact that I’ll probably never do another movie that gets its own day.”
The star, who has been marked as one of the most iconic ‘Star Wars’ characters then added the hashtag “May The Fourth Be With You Once In A Lifetime.”
What’s more, before releasing the mentioned tweet, the Hollywood star told the world that he and a few pals of him would reunite for a good cause, on the special day. He announced the news as follows, in another tweet:
“Join me, a few of my friends & surprise superstars for this amazing event with RWQuarantunes benefiting the USC William & Leslie McMorrow Neighborhood Academic Initiative!”
