In order to promote Star Wars Force for Change, Mark Hamill donned a Stormtrooper costume and took to the streets to tell people they could win a trip to the premiere. He dropped a few hints, even outright told someone who he was, and yet no one caught on. 

Between this and that time Harrison Ford dropped in on a bunch of Skype calls, we need to be very suspicious of people with camera crews promoting the charity event. Stay vigilant! Who knows where Carrie Fisher might show up!

Batman: The Killing Joke might just be one of the most anticipated Batman graphic novels adapted to animation, of all time. The 1988 graphic novel was written by Alan Moore with art by Brian Bolland. Empire managed to steal some time with Mark Hamill, who provides the voiceover for Joker in the animation adaptation:

"I can't imagine how people are going to react to this, because I'm a Killing Joke purist. When they first talked about it, I said, "The only way we can do this is as a book on tape so that we honor every comma, every word, every letter, every syllable of Alan Moore's script. We can add music and special effects to enhance it." They kind of said, "What are you talking about? Nobody is doing this as a book on tape. It's not commercially viable for us to do it that way. See if you can get the rights and record it in your basement or something if that's what you want to do. This story has to be expanded." If we just adapted The Killing Joke as an animated film, it would maybe be fifty-five minutes. They've actually done a really incredible job of supplementing it with Barbara Gordon/Batgirl material."



Hamill also offered up his thoughts on how surprised he was at the edginess of Batgirl:

"Even that surprised me, how edgy the Batgirl material was. This is not your father's Batman. The one regret I have is that if I was nine years old, there's nothing I would rather see more, yet it reallyisn't for kids. I hope people understand when they say it's R-rated, they mean it."

One of The Joker's most famous story lines, The Killing Joke is getting an animated movie in 2016, and Collider is officially reporting that everyone's favorite voice actor is coming back for the role. We are, of course, talking about Star Wars veteran Mark Hamill, who famously voiced the Crown Prince of Crime in Batman: The Animated Series. While everyones love Troy Baker and John DiMaggio, there's something timeless about Hamill's work.

The Killing Joke is a renowned book written by Alan Moore. Exploring the origins of The Joker, and the breadth of Batman and Comissioner Gordon's sense of right, The Killing Joke may be most famous for paralyzing Batgirl. An act that some today think was poor writing, even though it lead to everyone's favorite, Oracle.

Belfast Telegraph reported that Carrie Fisher recently said an interview that she, along with Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, are all expected to report to work in March or April for their continued roles in the upcoming addition to the Star Wars series.
Fisher said in the interview that she's looking forward to returning to her role as princess Leia. "I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again - but with white hair," she said. "I think that would be funny."

This isn't the first we've heard of Fisher reprising her role as Princess Leia, but it's the closest to real confirmation we've gotten so far.
