Watch Mark Hamill Photobombs Blow the Minds of Unwitting Star Wars Fans

No Jedi mind powers necessary.

What if you were just hanging out, goofing around in a Star Wars photo shoot—as you do—and Mark Hamill crept up behind you like a Force ghost? Yeah, we can easily imagine how that might melt your brain like Bodhi with the mind-reading … octo-thing in Rogue One, but the lucky fans in the video above managed to recover from their initial shock and thoroughly enjoy the experience.

As with the previous video featuring John Boyega photobombs, which was also a delight, this one is not only fun, but in promotion of the Force for Change charity. In addition to new prizes previously revealed, Hamill’s got another one you won’t want to miss: a chance to attend an early Star Wars: The Last Jedi screening and get lunch with the last Jedi himself in L.A.

Between May 3 (yesterday) and May 6, anyone who enters to win the other Force for Change prizes (including a stay at Skywalker Ranch and a set visit to the Han Solo movie) also has the possibility to win Hamill’s bonus prize. Higher donation amounts also come with automatic bonuses as well as additional entries for the main prizes, in case you’re feeling extra generous today (proceeds benefit Starlight Children’s Foundation and UNICEF). You can take a look at all your options over on the Force for Change Omaze page.
