All the details of 'Star Wars' actor Mark Hamill's emotional star ceremony

"Star Wars" legend Mark Hamill was immortalized on Hollywood's iconic Walk of Fame Thursday in front of scores of fans, some of whom had waited hours to glimpse the actor.

But reviving the Skywalker role in two recent iterations of Disney's Star Wars films and an active presence on Twitter has helped bring Hamill back into the spotlight.

'Then you have to remember, there's someone on the Walk of Fame that got a star for one crappy reality show.

Stormtroopers also joined the ceremony, as did R2-D2.

Brave Tottenham must play free against Juve - Pochettino
Tottenham's progression since former Espanyol coach Pochettino arrived in 2014 has been impressive. Asked what he could ultimately achieve at the north London club, Pochettino refused to be drawn.

The 66-year-old actor, who starred in Star Wars: A New Hope in his 20s, took the stage with the same exuberance he's shown at many appearances, waving to fans who lined the Walk of Fame and even drawing a heart in the air.

"These will be brief remarks because words truly fail me", he said. Lucas also praised the actor and said, "Mark Hamill is a character that can't be written". "And it's cold. But we don't care - we're here for Mark Hamill", fan Luis Kezzer said. "He's extremely enthusiastic about everything he does" - just the quality he was looking for when casting the role of Luke Skywalker back in 1977. "I haven't been this speechless since Force Awakens!". "He changed my life forever in a way that still reverberates today".

"Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find nearly anything you want to in Star Wars.", said J.J. Abrams, who is returning to helm Episode IX after directing The Force Awakens. He closed out the event saying, "If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere". "He is, as he always was, a quiet, sincere, honest person".

"You are with me through thick and thin, and the highs and the lows, and everywhere in between. And may the Force be with all of you".
