While flying today on a United flight, “Star Wars” star Mark Hamill provided the airline with the first fun moment it’s had in days, after a fellow passenger shouted the franchise’s most famous catchphrase, ” TheWrap has learned.
Hamill was on his way to Orlando, Florida for Star Wars Celebration 2017, Lucasfilm’s now-annual convention promoting the franchise and its fandom happening April 13-16. According to passenger Dustin Sandoval, the Digital Marketing Director for Walt Disney Studios, Hamill experienced some trouble opening one of the plane’s bathroom doors. At that point, a fellow passenger shouted the only thing that, let’s be honest, any of you reading this would:
“Use the force!”
He had a bit of trouble opening the bathroom door to which someone blurred out "Use the force". Not making this up. Weeeeeeeeeee!

Maybe Hamill can use the force to turn United around because the company is currently under fire after videos showing a man being forcibly dragged off a United Airlines flight went viral early Sunday night.
Star Wars Celebration will take place in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center on April 13-16. It’s widely expected that Disney and Lucasfilm will debut the first trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” though no statement confirming this has been made.
