He's best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, the first of which happened to be his first feature film.
Hamill's star, outside the El Capitan Theatre, is the 2,630th in Hollywood.
Mark Hamill, a longtime star of the Star Wars franchise and defender of Star Wars fans everywhere, offered some advice for a young girl afraid to sport her fangirl pride at school. Ford took time to honor the third member of their trio, the late Carrie Fisher, who famously played Princess Leia.
Ford, who has a star himself, joked, "There's a lot more people that showed up for my star".

"I'm very proud of Mark for getting this star", Lucas said. Lucas also praised the actor and said, "Mark Hamill is a character that can't be written".
Compared to Ford's more gruff demeanor, Hamill has always had a more playful attitude, especially when interacting with fans. "He is extremely enthusiastic about everything that he does, and that's exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for Luke Skywalker". In fact, I remember when George Lucas first asked me to come back, I said, 'OK, but I have two provisions. "So whatever fates led me to his doorstep, he changed my life in a way that still reverberates today". "If it weren't for the public, I'd be nowhere", he says to cheers from the gathered crowd.
"From Jedi to Joker, it's been a fantastic ride. You just focus on the work and putting one foot in front of the other, and I guess if you hang around long enough..."
Hamill, who also starred on the stage in "Amadeus" and voiced the Joker in the animated Batman TV series, returned the favour to Lucas.
