In celebration of the upcoming movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi (in theaters December 15), Hamill visited Disneyland Tuesday to surprise some unsuspecting guests.

A video of Mark's impromptu appearance was shared on Twitter, showing a Disneyland employee reading from his "Star Tours" script before deviating as he said: "Actually, you know what, the captain did mention something about a special passenger...."

Just as the employee was walking out, Hamill arrived, buoyantly greeting Disneyland visitors with, "Hello everyone!"

Fans who have been to Disney Parks have likely taken the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars galaxy by riding on Star Tours: The Adventure Continues, but what could make that experience better? "Oh, and the Force is strong with this one...".

This isn't the first time Hamill has surprised fans.

He's the star of what might be the hottest entertainment franchise in Hollywood, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi ready to drop next month. "It took me long enough- but my childhood dream of working Disneyland finally came true!"

Wielding a bright green lightsaber, Hamill made his way onto the stage.

"I'm sorry I missed your birthday", Hamill said.

"Do we have any Star Wars fans here today?" asked Hamill, receiving applause and cheers in response.

After the surprise, Adam smiled “this really is one of the moments of my life”.
