Just as the BBC’s Jodie Whittaker offered a message of hope and encouragement recently, Star WarsMark Hamill is broadcasting a message of hope and thanks during this difficult time. Please turn down the stream, so you can hear Mr. Hamill properly. When you’re done, turn the stream back on. You don’t want our DJs to feel unwanted.

Mark Hamill encourages and urges hope to everyone suffering through the pandemic and the lockdown. He also thanks those Star Wars fans who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help others. Hamill salutes by name Star Wars fans on four continents who are working hard to help their fellow humans.

Pause the stream while you watch this.

In times like these, we all have to pull together.

May the Force be with us all.
