It’s official. Luke Skywalker turned to the dark side.

Actor Mark Hamill, who plays the legendary Star Wars hero Luke Skywalker, recently pranked fans in support of his charity by donning Darth Vader’s mask and sneaking up on fans.

The 65-year-old actor snuck up behind fans or even dressed in disguise alongside those in attendance for Lucasfilm’s latest Star Wars: Force for Change event, according to Time Magazine.

As EW reported, a few select fans were invited to reenact and film some of the biggest moments in Star Wars so that they could spread awareness about the foundation,

Little did they know Hamill himself would appear.

Those who donate to Force for Change, which donates its funds to UNICEF and Starlight Children’s Foundation, are entered into a chance to visit the set of the upcoming untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, a chance to see the premiere of the upcoming movie “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and lunch with Hamill himself, Time reported.
