Watch: Mark Hamill, Darth Vader, and R2-D2 Visit Children's Hospital

Luke Skywalker may not be present in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens marketing campaign, but Mark Hamill takes Darth Vader and R2-D2 with him to entertain the kids at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles. It feels good to see the smiles on children's faces as they spend time with the Master Jedi and his Sith father. After all, as George Lucas said, Star Wars is all about the family. 



A hospital full of Padawans...trained by Luke Skywalker! Huge thanks to Lucasfilm, Mark Hamill, Steven Blum, and the The 501st Legion for visiting the kids at CHLA. Still smiling, our kids are. Yeesssssss. #‎StarWars Day at CHLA!

Hamill also posted about it on Facebook:
