Another big Star Wars guest has been announced for Celebration Europe, and it is none other than Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill! Here is the official announcement made over at StarWars.com:
The galaxy’s new hope is heading to Germany: Mark Hamill is confirmed to attend Star Wars Celebration Europe, where the legendary actor will appear onstage, as well as meet fans and sign in Autograph Hall. Best known the iconic role of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, Hamill is also a giant in voice-acting, most notably for his multiple-decade turn as the Joker, from the classic Batman: The Animated Series to his BAFTA-winning performance in 2012’s Arkham City.
Hamill has lent his voice to many other major animated works, including Hayao Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky and Nausicaa: The Valley of the Wind, The Batman, The Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, The Spectacular Spider-Man, Futurama, Robot Chicken and Metalocalypse. He recently appeared as a surprise guest on the season finale of Criminal Minds.
Hamill is also the co-writer of a five-issue Dark Horse Comics series entitled The Black Pearl, a dark, edgy thriller that subverts the notion of what it means to be a costumed superhero. Hamill plans to direct a movie of the series based on a screenplay that he has co-written.
