There is little doubt that Mark Hamill is one of the most recognizable icons in the Star Wars Universe. So it's no surprise that the man who played Luke Skywalker was chosen to pen a touching tribute letter to fans that would be included in the Star Wars Skywalker Saga box set. Now Hamill has shared the exclusive message and it will truly warm your hearts.

Hamill shared a photo of the letter included in the Star Wars Skywalker Saga box set on his official Twitter account. Not surprisingly, the note also pays tribute to his co-stars Harrison Ford and the late Carrie Fisher. Check it out below.

"What an extraordinary journey it's been," Hamill wrote. "Back in 1976, when Carrie, Harrison and I were testing for our roles in what was then called The Adventures of Luke, as taken from The Journal of the Whills, Saga I: The Star Wars, there's no way we could have known what an incredibly rich and imaginative set of adventures this obscure little space movie would launch, inspiring eight more chapters to tell the entire Skywalker story."


Hamill continued by pointing out that it doesn't matter if you've been on the Star Wars journey from the start or if you were a new fan.

"For some of you, that journey began with us over 40 years ago, inviting Star Wars into your lives from the seats of just a few dozen theaters in its first days of release. For others, you may have joined us somewhere along the way, from the harrowing saga of young Anakin's descent to the Dark Side in the prequel trilogy or the introduction of an entirely new generation of heroes in the sequel trilogy," he wrote.

Naturally, the message ends with one of the most iconic Star Wars lines. It's an awesome treat for fans who were able to pre-order the box set.

The Star Wars Skywalker Saga box set includes all nine films and retails for $249.99. Meanwhile, you can watch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which is now available on digital.
