Mark Hamill to join Battlefront 2 and the upcoming Star Wars Celebration

It's official! Mark Hamill is coming to Disney's Star Wars Celebration Orlando! So grab your lightsabers, tattered jedi rags and get ready to use the force with fleets-worth of your fellow Star Wars enthusiasts! 

As per the official statement posted on starwars.com:

The 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 “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?

Additionally, EA Games announced that the debut trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II will be featured as a part of the Galaxywide Premiere of Star Wars Battlefront II panel on April 15 at 2:30PM ET/11:30AM PT. If for some reason you aren't able to attend the event, this link right here has got you covered. 

The Star Wars Celebration Orlando will take place April 13-16 at the Orange County Convention Center.

Extra Tidbit: Mark Hamill's childhood heroes are Superman, Peter Pan, Zorro and James Bond.
