Filming for the "Star Wars" movies has taken actors all over the world.

Portions of the desert planet Tatooine were filmed in Tunisia. The ice planet Hoth was filmed in Norway. Planet Crait, where Luke Skywalker fought Kylo Ren on a salt flat, was filmed in Bolivia.

But where does Skywalker's actor want to visit? Mark Hamill was asked on Twitter where he has never been but wants to go.

His one-word answer: Kansas.

The original poster replied with a gif of Dorothy Gale clicking her red ruby slippers. In another "The Wizard of Oz" joke, one fan Photoshopped the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man, Scarecrow and Dorothy into the Millennium Falcon's cockpit.

Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer suggested Hamill visit on May 4, which some call Star Wars Day for the wordplay on "May the Force be with you."

State Trooper Ben Gardner tweeted that he would let Hamill drive his patrol car, adding later that he only lets Jedi warriors drive it. He also has concerns with Ewoks after someone tweeted a gif of an Ewok recklessly driving an imperial speeder bike on a moon of Endor.

The Kansas Department of Transportation, with a gif of the Joker taking a bow, said it's not a joke that Hamill would experience "some cool things" if he comes to the state. Hamill also voiced the Joker in multiple animated Batman TV series.

Hamill may enjoy the state's sunsets. Skywalker was a sunset-watcher in at least two of the movies.

Hamill did not explain on Twitter why he chose Kansas.

If Hamill were to visit Kansas, he wouldn't be the first "Star Wars" actor to do so. Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo, regularly visits Wichita to have his airplane serviced.
