Yes, Luke Skywalker replies in Russian.
This is not the propaganda you’re looking for.
On Monday, Mark Hamill had a great response to some old Russian article that decried Star Wars: Return of the Jedi as “the final act in an insidious capitalist plot to militarize space.” The article was unearthed by Matthew Bodner, a journalist for The Moscow Times.
Hamill, a prolific social media user, saw the post and responded — in Russian.
“Go Force Yourself, comrades!,” the Luke Skywalker actor replied, adding that it was tricky to get Google translator to spit out the word “force.”
“Must be a plot!” Hamill quipped.
(Go Force Yourself, comrades!) For some reason, Google translator refuses to translate the word “Force”-Must be a plot! https://t.co/KTxdn2kbKy
