"From Jedi to Joker and back again, it has been a fantastic ride, thank you so much and may the force be with each and every one of you", Hamill said. "He's extremely enthusiastic about everything he does and that is exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker". "I haven't been speechless since 'Force Awakens'".

Hamill has been a prolific voiceover artist in animated series and video games, including as the Joker in "Batman" and "Justice League" projects. "Whatever led me to his doorstep, he changed my life forever in a way that still reverberates today". "They're so supportive. I mean, through thick and thin".

Ford continued, describing Hamill as "quiet, sincere, and honest. From the Joker to the Jedi, it's been an wonderful ride, and may the force be with each and every one of you".
