STAR WARS' MARK HAMILL LENDS VOICE TO UKRAINE AIR RAID ALERTS

Saying how he’s admired how Ukraine has ”shown such resilience … under such terrible circumstances,” Star Wars actor Mark Hamill is lending his voice to Air Alert; an app linked to Ukraine’s air defence system, that’s been downloaded over 14-million times.
“Attention. Air raid alert. Proceed to the nearest shelter. Don’t be careless,” the 71-year-old Hamill advises.
”Your over confidence is your weakness.”
Once the threat of Russian missiles, bombs and exploding drones passes …
“Attention. The air alert is over. May the force be with you.”
Although the app also has a Ukrainian-language setting, voiced by a woman, some Ukrainians prefer to have Luke Skywalker give them a heads up.
Hamill is also raising funds to buy reconnaissance drones for Ukrainian forces, autographing Star Wars-themed posters that are being raffled off.
