Mark Hamill shares his must-watch Christmas movies

We are bowing down to Hamill's old by gold Christmas movie picks.

Star Wars‘ Luke Skywalker and Batman‘s Joker, Mark Hamill, doesn’t just love long walks on the beach, lightsabers, and bat-themed superheroes. He also loves Christmas! And who doesn’t? We’re a few days away from the festive holiday, so there’s no better time for Hamill to have shared his holiday traditions than right now. It might be a little short notice, considering Christmas is right around the corner, but the Hamill family has shared their annual Christmas movie traditions — we all have them.

The 71-year-old, who’s known for voicing The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and playing Luke Skywalker in several Star Wars movies, took to Twitter to share — in the spirit of the giving season — his top picks for Christmas movies in the lead-up to December. And actually, they’re not as conventional as one would expect; there’s no sign of Elf, The Grinch, or Santa Claus, which could be considered sinful — if it weren’t for his redeeming suggestions.

Nowadays, the most famous Christmas movies feature Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, or the muppets, but Hamill much prefers the older classics, specifically A Christmas Carol, starring Alastair Sim; March of the Wooden Soldiers (also known as Babes in Toyland), starring Laurel and Hardy; Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol; and the Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special.

Not exactly every individual’s favorite Christmas flicks, but Hamill isn’t a follower, so there’s no surprise in the fact that he dances to the beat of his own drum. Plus, he’s got 70-years-worth of cinema experience compared to the average 20 or 30-year-old. Perhaps we, the typically younger crowd, could learn a few things from Hamill and his fine taste.
