The idea to create the posters occurred in early October 2022, shortly after Hamill became an ambassador for the UNITED24 fundraising platform, launched by President Zelenskyy. The author who made the drawing, illustrator Justin Aram, depicted the legendary X-wing Fighter from the Star Wars movie franchise. In the film, one of these was used by Luke Skywalker to destroy the Death Star, the Galactic Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. In Aram's version, the Starfighter is presented in blue and yellow colors, facing the Imperial space fleet in the colors of the russian flag. The artist posted his piece on Twitter, and it went viral shortly after. Mark then shared the picture via his page, also writing "May the Force be with you" in Polish, and then in Ukrainian.
