Mark Hamill’s Message To This ‘Star Wars’ Superfan Who Just Got A BB-8 Bionic Arm Is Giving Us All The Feels

Luke Skywalker has sent his congratulations to an 11-year-old Star Wars superfan after he was the first in the world to receive a BB-8 inspired bionic arm cover.

Actor Mark Hamill tweeted the special message to Cameron Millar, from Edinburgh, who was born without a right arm.

Open Bionics, which manufactures the Hero Arm, shared a video of Cameron unboxing the new covers and giving a thumbs up the camera, adding they were “really, really cool”.

The young fan’s cover is in the style of droid character BB-8, who appears in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

Sharing the video, Hamill tweeted:

In the latest installment of the Star Wars saga, Skywalker lost his his right arm following a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader.

Last year, Hamill worked with Open Bionics to record a message for children with limb differences.

He said: 

“Remember, Luke lost his hand to Vader, but that didn’t stop him from defeating the Empire.

“So have courage, be determined, and always remember that your limb difference is your very own superpower.

“And may the Force be with you all.”
