A CELEBRATION OF ALL THINGS LUKE SKYWALKER
Today, March 8th, is hereby known as Jedi Day. This is because today in Hollywood, California, Mark Hamill will be recognized for his contribution to entertainment with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The monkeys at ThinkGeek want to take the time to celebrate Mark Hamill and everything we love about the Jedi.
Thank you, Mark Hamill, for breathing life into the character of Luke Skywalker.
We held our breath watching you use the Force to target the exhaust port in the Death Star.
We worried about you when you had to crawl inside a recently deceased Tauntaun for warmth.
We struggled with you as you learned to master the Force with Master Yoda. (Who knew so many piggyback rides were involved?)
We gasped (and cringed) when you discovered the princess you kissed was your sister.
We cried with you as you helped redeem your father in his final moments.
We suffered when you left us hanging at the end of The Force Awakens.
We celebrated when you delivered on that anticipation two years later in The Last Jedi. (Milking that Thala-siren is not something we are soon to forget, Luke.)
We raise our lightsabers to you, Mark Hamill. You are more than deserving of this honor. Congratulations!
Mark Hamill's star will be dedicated at a special ceremony at 11:30 AM PT. Hamill's Star Wars friends Harrison Ford and George Lucas will be joining the master of ceremonies Leron Gubler to unveil the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. If you'd like to tune in to watch the ceremony yourself, you can do so at www.walkoffame.com.
You can choose to celebrate Jedi Day however you like, but we'll be building a Luke Skywalker shrine around our The Last Jedi Luke Profile Wall Art, counting down the minutes until the ceremony on our Nixon Luke Skywalker Safari Watch, and practicing "conflict resolutions" with a Plush Luke and Wampa. You can grab your own celebratory gear over here at ThinkGeek.com.
