'Star Wars' actor gets his star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

But reviving the Skywalker role in two recent iterations of Disney's Star Wars films and an active presence on Twitter has helped bring Hamill back into the spotlight.

Hamill received the 2,630 star located in front of the El Capitan Theatre with special guests Harrison Ford, George Lucas, Billie Lourd, Kelly Marie Tran and R2-D2.

Mark Hamill became a household name for his role in the intergalactic movie series "Star Wars".

The star also gushed over Ford and Lucas' involvement with the ceremony, explaining, "I was shocked at George and Harrison because they don't have to do this... and it meant the world that they did". I shouldn't say reality show, it's more like a game show'. "I'm very proud of Mark for getting his star".

Lucas also addressed the audience, praising the chemistry formed between Hamill, Ford and Fisher in the early days of the franchise. "From Jedi to Joker and back again, it's been a fantastic ride, thank you so much", Hamill said during the ceremony. "He is extremely enthusiastic about everything that he does, and that s exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker", he added.

"Thinking about today, I was really sorry that we don't have...the other member of our trio here to celebrate with us." . "I haven't been this speechless since Force Awakens". "Whatever led me to his doorstep, he changed my life forever in a way that still reverberates today".

Hamill, who lends his voice to the villainous Joker in animated "Batman" and "Justice League" shows, punctuated his comments with a cackling Joker laugh. "They're so supportive. I mean, through thick and thin". "He is, as he always was, a quiet, sincere, honest person".
