Watch Mark Hamill Hit the Streets as an Undercover Stormtrooper

     December 3, 2015


In the last video promoting the Force for Change charity campaign on Omaze, Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams teased some sort of reveal of Mark Hamill. We still haven’t seen the actor return as Luke Skywalker in any of the promotional images or footage for the film, and I was secretly hoping that this might change. However, our suspicions prompting us to take all that with a grain of salt proved true. We do see Hamill’s return in a new Force for Change video, but he’s come back to punk a bunch of pedestrians in California.

“The last time anybody saw me in a Stormtrooper outfit was when we rescued the Princess on the Death Star,” Hamill says in the video as he gets suited up in the new armor for the First Order troops. He hit the streets of Hollywood Boulevard to promote the campaign in support of 15 charities — all fans have to do is donate at least $10 and they’re entered to win the chance to attend the Force Awakens premiere and meet the cast.

Check out Hamill in character below:

Hamill didn’t reveal his true identity to the public — at least, not that we can see — but he had some priceless interactions, including his intense battle with a cosplayer Jedi wielding a lightsaber as Hamill exclaimed, “Phew, Phew, Phew!” He also called an Iron Man impersonator C-3PO (where are the Captain America: Civil War memes for that one?), converted Darth Vader over to the light, and reenacted, “I don’t need to see your identification” scene from A New Hope with a waving toddler.

It’s crazy to think there’s only two weeks before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, and there’s still time for those to become a part of the Omaze campaign. Even if you don’t win the ultimate grand prize, at least we’ll all soon know what the heck is going on with Luke Skywalker very soon.
