Get him to #Hamillion, Twitter.

Celebrated film and TV actor and expert Twitter troll Mark Hamill is no stranger to gently stringing along his followers in good fun, but he’s raising it to another level just in time for April Fools’ Day.

While Hamill has repeatedly teased us about which Star Wars characters Luke Skywalker may or may not be related to, he’s usually rather mum when it comes to actual spoilers from Episode VIII, which is currently filming. There’s a big, expensive reason he hasn’t said anything about what’s in the movie.

But Hamill’s quest to hit one million Twitter followers knows no bounds, and with the permission of director Rian Johnson, he’s revealing a real Star Wars spoiler for us in the form of a script page. He just never said which one he’d reveal for #Hamillion.

At the very least, Hamill’s gag may have inspired Johnson to name the as-yet-untitled sequel.

On a different note, while we won’t see any real spoilers from Hamill today, we do finally have the answer to a very important question that’s circulated online for some time now regarding Hamill’s 30-year attachment to a particularly unique sweater.

Now that’s a spoiler we can get behind.
