Working with Omaze, Hamill filmed his adventure on Hollywood Boulevard. As little as a $10 donation, the latest Omaze campaign, (Omaze.com/StarWars) benefits 15 different charities chosen by the cast and filmmakers of The Force Awakens. 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.
“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.”READ MORE: UPDATE: Woman Accused of Starting Fawn Fire Was Boiling Bear Urine to Drink
“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.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters December 18th.
