Star Wars Celebration Orlando 17Mark Hamill is officially coming to Star Wars Celebration Orlando. And he’s going to have a little more to say than he did in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Mark Hamill Star Wars Celebration 2017The legendary actor — known as Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga, the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and the Arkham video game series, host of Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest, and much more — is set to return for his sixth Star Wars Celebration. Hamill, a Star Wars icon, has become a Celebration favorite for his insightful, heartfelt, and very funny talks. At Celebration Orlando, he will be present for all four days of the show, signing autographs and part of some very special programming.

On Friday, April 14, fans can attend “Mark Hamill’s Tribute to Carrie Fisher,” in which the actor remembers the talent, humor, and legacy of his friend and co-star.

Sunday, April 16, will see Hamill take the stage solo (no pun intended) for the appropriately titled “Mark Hamill, Himself,” featuring an hour of anecdotes and audience Q&A. In the past, Hamill has discussed everything from making the Star Wars films to how he gave his complete collection of vintage Star Wars toys to his kids, allowing them to open every single item. (He’ll also throw in the occasional Beatles reference.) Who knows what he’ll discuss this time?

The Jedi returns this April. Don’t miss it.
