Mark Hamill AKA Luke Skywalker AKA The Joker *finally* received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame outside the iconic El Capitan Theatre overnight and it was magical.

Several of Hamill's colleagues were in attendance, including The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, co-stars Kelly Marie Tran and Billie Lourd, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

Hamill has also been a prolific presence on Broadway, with credits including "The Elephant Man", and "Amadeus", and works frequently as a voice-over artist, lending his voice to characters like the Joker in "Batman: The Animated Series". But not to take away from Hamill's day, it was the mention of our beloved Carrie Fisher that really proved to be one of the most memorable moments of the ceremony.

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

"These will be brief remarks because words truly fail me", Hamill said.

"I'm very proud of Mark for getting this star", Lucas finished, adding that Hamill's got a bunch more projects in him. "Whatever led me to his doorstep, he changed my life forever in a way that still reverberates today".

'This is the only franchise where, if you go on Twitter, they say, "If such and such happens, I am so out". I was looking for somebody who had grown up on a farm in the middle of nowhere, very naive about what was going on in the world, young, but enthusiastic. He thanked his family, "Star Wars" creator George Lucas and especially the fans for helping him achieve his dream. "You just focus on the work and putting one foot in front of the other, and I guess if you hang around long enough..."

Ford continued, "He has been the master of his own experience, his own life and he is as he always was - a quiet, sincere, honest person".
