The light side of the Force has spoken as Star Wars icon Mark Hamill sent a message of hope to a young fan and girls all around the galaxy.
The 66-year-old veteran actor showed why he's a fan favorite with a Twitter exchange that features his signature positivity and enthusiasm.
The Force Is Strong In Females
It began when a Twitter user reached out to Hamill, saying her daughter is in tears at the moment over wanting to wear a Star Wars shirt, but fearing her classmates' ridicule for liking "boy stuff."
The Luke Skywalker actor instantly responded in encouragement with a gif of himself brushing off his shoulder in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
"The Force is, & always will be strong with females here on Earth & in galaxies far, far away," he wrote.
Just tell her to feel free to use this gesture if her classmates give her any grief. "Boy stuff"? PLEASE! The Force is, & always will be strong with females here on Earth & in galaxies far, far away.

It's the perfect sentiment to cap off International Women's Day, especially since Disney attracted backlash by announcing Jon Favreau as the writer and producer of a new Star Wars television series during a day honoring women around the world.
Hamill's Twitter Activities
Even beyond offering comfort to young kids, Hamill is an active Twitter user and he may have just landed a major gig for it. When one fan on Twitter reached out to Guardians of the Galaxy big gun James Gunn asking him to create a role for the Star Wars actor in the third film of the ensemble movie, Gunn responded by saying the two of them are actually neighbors in Malibu and they can talk it out over coffee.
Hamill, a self-described "unemployed actor," told the Marvel executive to DM him, who then responded in the affirmative.
So while the actor already has an impressive career, he's not calling quits just yet. The Star Wars legend, who was just honored with a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has a few projects lined up — plus his potential gig in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, of course.
The actor is set to voice characters in television movie Relatively Super and television mini-series Transformers: Power of the Primes.
