A picture is worth a thousand words — or maybe just four: “I am your father.”
On Sunday, Mark Hamill shared a perfect Father’s Day post.
The Star Wars icon tweeted a photo of Darth Vader, along with the caption “#HappyFathersDay.”
Of course, in one of the biggest twists in movie history, it turned out Luke’s father, Anakin Skywalker, became Darth Vader. All was revealed in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back.
Needless to say, the tweet went over well, being shared thousands of times just minutes after it was posted.
Hamill is also a social media Jedi with millions of followers across his multiple platforms.
And when he posts, it matters.
Just days ago, after Hamill tweeted that he had never met Natalie Portman, who played Luke and Leia’s mother, Padmé Amidala, in the Star Wars prequels, the Oscar-winning actress said on CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert that she would very much like to meet Hamill.
“It’s such a shame, I would love to meet him,” she said. “Mark, I would love to meet you, come over,” Portman said to the camera.
Hamill later tweeted he saw the segment, meaning hopefully, for Star Wars fans, the wheels are in motion for a mother-son get-together.
