Mark Hamill reunites with Harrison Ford as he receives star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

The force is strong...

Star Wars icon Mark Hamill reunited with Harrison Ford as he received his long-overdue star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hamill, who portrays Luke Skywalker in the iconic franchise, joined forces with Ford on Hollywood Boulevard as he received the honour, along with the presence of lovable droid R2-D2.

But while the pair were also joined by Star Wars creator George Lucas, they took a moment to pay tribute to Carrie Fisher after her untimely death in December 2016.

“When thinking about today, I was really sorry we don’t have the other member of our trio to celebrate with us, but I feel her presence”, Ford said.

Praising Hamill, George Lucas said: “Mark Hamill is a character that can’t be written.

“He is extremity enthusiastic about everything he does, and that is exactly what I was looking for when I cast Luke Skywalker.”

Along with Lucas’ family, the ceremony also saw the attendance of Billie Lourd, the daughter of the late Fisher, and Kelly Marie Tran – who portrays Rose in The Last Jedi.

“It’s hard to convey my gratitude, my joy and the exhilaration,” Hamill said of the honour.

“I haven’t been speechless since Force Awakens. [Ford] gave me the great advice, ‘Hey, kid, Don’t get cocky.’ And I have tried to remember that to this very day.”
