Luke Skywalker meets the Joker

Mark Hamill is just an enjoyable guy. For me, the most fun with him has come from his work as a voice actor. He has really cemented The Voice of The Joker for a lot of people.

But if you've ever wondered what would happen if Luke Skywalker met the Joker...

I am also quite fond of a movie he once made years back, Comic Book: The Movie. (So, yes, this is partly an excuse to bring this movie up.) Hamill constructed a movie that allowed him to blend his own love of comic books with the combined talents of many of his friends and colleges in voice acting.

Some star with him, like Billy West (Futurama, Ren and Stimpy, Ultimate Spider-Man), Jess Harnell (Animaniacs) and Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants, The Powerpuff Girls, Mr. Show, Adventure Time).

And the rest of the cast and cameos include the voices of Batgirl, Monterrey Jack, Darkwing Duck, Jimmy Neutron, Invisible Woman, Cosmo, Timmy Turner, Tasmanian Devil, J. Jonah Jameson, Raven, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and Harly Quinn to.

The story centers on one intense comic fans (Mark Hamill) quest to see an old comic character, Commander Courage, faithfully adapted. It leads him to drag in the last relative of the long dead creator(Billy West), who has no idea about the strange world of San Diego Comic Con, fandom, and Hollywood he's being drug into. All the while Hamill's character is making a documentary for the company who owns the rights to Commander Courage.
