Mark Hamill goes undercover as stormtrooper for charity

Posted: Updated:

Mark Hamill took to Hollywood Boulevard disguised as a stormtrooper to share a special message with fans: this is your last chance to win tickets for you and three friends to the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. For a donation as little as $10, this latest Omaze campaign will benefit 15 different charities chosen by the cast and filmmakers of the new Star Wars film. The campaign furthers the mission of Star Wars: Force for Change, an initiative inspiring people to make a positive impact on the world around them.

Watch Mark disguised as a stormtrooper below.

“The last time anybody saw me in a stormtrooper outfit was when we rescued the princess off the Death Star.” says Hamill, “I couldn’t be more proud of everyone in the Star Wars family. Your support has been absolutely fantastic, and I for one can’t wait for the premiere.”

“In just the first ten days, Star Wars fans from 107 countries have joined forces to support this campaign,” says Ryan Cummins, Omaze Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “And it’s been inspiring to see Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, J.J. Abrams and the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens connecting with all of them for the benefit of 15 global charities.”

There will be two lucky campaign winners who get to bring three friends each to either the LA or London premiere to walk the red carpet, meet the cast and attend the after-party.

May the Force be with you!
