Continuing in the proud tradition of celebrities who disguise themselves in cosplay at San Diego Comic-Con, Mark Hamill hid among fans on the convention floor donned as a stormtrooper.
But while Luke Skywalker dressed up as an Imperial stormtrooper over 40 years ago, Hamill took a modern approach by disguising as a First Order stormtrooper from the recent Disney “Star Wars” films. And yes, he joked about Leia’s infamous “Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?” line in his Instagram post.
“DAY 3 WISH LIST,” Hamill wrote. “A) Don’t arouse any suspicions it’s me because I’m too short for this costume B) Find that ultra-rare comic book I need to complete my collection C) Get @NathanHamill‘s autograph (if I can find Booth #1415) D) Find the perfect nacho”
Hamill is far from the first celebrity to go cosplaying at Comic-Con. Last year, Lupita Nyong’o took a break from promoting “Black Panther” by disguising herself as the Pink Ranger, and “Mythbusters” star Adam Savage has long-been a cosplay enthusiast, disguising himself as the mysterious No-Face from Hayao Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away.”
Hamill also picked out another disguise for the Hall H panel for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which was picked up by NBC after Fox dropped the show. Also, the Jedi would like to let you know that he’s the one who saved the show.
