Manager of Child Life at CHLA, Carol Kim stated, “When you can capture the undivided attention ranging from as young as 3 years old to a person well into their 80’s, you know you’ve got something special. Star Wars signifies just that, extraordinary. The anticipation and irrepressible excitement radiating from our patients and families representing every generation was profound. In that moment, I think we all forgot we were in the hospital.”

The hospital shared the amazing footage on their Facebook page with the caption: “A hospital full of Padawans … trained by Luke Skywalker! Huge thanks to Lucasfilm, Mark Hamill, Steven Blum, and the The 501st Legion for visiting the kids at CHLA. Still smiling, our kids are. Yeesssssss. ‪#‎ForceForChange‬.”
