Uber Eats’ new Star Wars-themed advert stars Mark Hamill and Patrick Stewart

The lead actors of rival space franchises face off in the new advertisement

Mark Hamill and Patrick Stewart have brought the Star Wars and Star Trek fandoms together in a new ad for UberEats.

While the two franchises have often divided fans in disagreement over which is the superior space story, the two lead stars have now teamed up for the tongue-in-cheek clip.

In the ad, Hamill and Stewart meet in an empty warehouse, where they face off and even debate the pronunciation of the word “tomato”.

Hamill shared a teaser on his Twitter account, writing: “So @SirPatStew and I finally did it. Our @UberEats #ad is out tomorrow. Here’s something while you wait.”

Stewart shared a 45-second clip on his Twitter, writing: “Honoured to have battled it out with @hamillhimself to settle one of the greatest debate of all time: what’s for dinner?”

“Tonight, I’ll be eating a veggie cheeseburger on ciabatta,” says Hamill. “No tomatoes.”

Stewart replies: “Tonight, I’ll be eating four-cheese tortellini with extra tomatoes.”

Stewart then taunts Hamill by saying “careful now daddy’s not here to save you,” to which Hamill says, “I am my daddy” – leading to confusion.

Hamill starred as Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, and reprised his role for the newest films.

Stewart, meanwhile, played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran from 1987-1994, and recently reprised the role for the new series Star Trek: Picard.
