The star power is strong with this one. 


At long last, Star Wars icon Mark Hamill received the coveted speckled star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday. In front of the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, California, the Luke Skywalker actor graciously accepted his fate.

And they spelled it right!

Hamill was accompanied by Star Wars creator George Lucas and fellow legendary Star Wars hero, co-star Harrison Ford. 


"Mark Hamill is a character that can't be written," Lucas said to the cheering crowd, according to the LA Times. "He's extremely enthusiastic about everything he does, and that's exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker."


When it came time for Hamill to accept the star alongside two Stormtroopers, he thanked fans for their love and support. 


"You are with me through thick and thin and the highs and the lows and everywhere in between. If it wasn't for the public I'd be nowhere," he told the crowd. "From Jedi to Joker and back again, it's been a fantastic ride. And may the Force be with all of you."
