Watch Mark Hamill Ignite a 'Star War' With Jimmy Kimmel On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Star Wars icon Mark Hamill received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today in Los Angeles, California.

He's best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, the first of which happened to be his first feature film.

The celebrated franchise is well-represented during his ceremony with costar Harrison Ford and franchise creator George Lucas giving amusing and touching tributes to the veteran actor.

It's a tad silly, yes, but Hamill goes all out with the Star Wars references and is clearly having great craic doing so.

Stormtroopers also joined the ceremony, as did R2-D2.

The most bittersweet moment of the ceremony came when Harrison took a moment to shout out Carrie.

The court subsequently did issue a charge of rape last month, with the trial pending as they ask it to move to a higher court. The court came to the conclusion that she had not been subjected to "constraint, threat, violence, or surprise".

Ford, who has a star himself, joked, "There's a lot more people that showed up for my star".

"Mark is a friend that I don't see very often".

Finally, he thanked the fans for being with him throughout his long career, which has not only included the "Star Wars" franchise, but various voice-over roles in TV and video games. "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.

"I'm very proud of Mark for getting his star", Lucas tells the crowd in his speech. "If it weren't for the genius of George Lucas, I wouldn't be standing here today..."

I feel like that should have cheered us all up but it just made me more emotional.

"If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere", said Hamill. "They're so supportive. I mean, through thick and thin". He has been the master of his own experience, his own life, and he is-as he always was-a quiet, sincere, honest person. Aside from heading to the galaxy far, far away, Hamill has also starred in the likes of The Flash and Kingsman: The Secret Service, as well as providing the voice of the Joker for Batman: The Animated Series.
