Mark Hamill Jedi Mind Tricks Social Media With This Epic Tweet Luke Skywalker channels Yoda in a gender politics message that is warmer and fuzzier than an Ewok dance party.
Episode VII may have left some questions as to Luke Skywalker's role in the reshaping of the galaxy, but the man behind the robe, Mark Hamill, left no ambiguity about how he feels about gender roles at Comic Con. The actor responded to this fan question on Twitter:
@HamillHimself can I go to comic con as Luke Skywalker even though I'm a girl? I'm doing it anyways :) #wigsarefun pic.twitter.com/D1iSERLDem— Jessica Bentley (@jessicab19911) June 14, 2016
