Mark Hamill has revealed why Lucasfilm would not release a photo of himself as Luke Skywalker taken on set during the filming of the original classic Star Wars in Tunisia.
The photo was posted to Twitter by a Mark Hamill fan account asking what the cloth seen in the photo under Luke’s tunic was. Hamill responded explaining that it was a low-cut t-shirt and that it was why Lucasfilm did not want the photo release in addition to him not having his leggings on in the photo.
For years Lucasfilm wouldn’t release this pic-U can see the low-cut t-shirt under my tunic& I’m not wearing my leggings #StopInTheNameOfLove

This reveal comes days after Hamill released the first ever photo of himself as Skywalker taken just before the filming of the shot when he emerges from his Tatooine homestead for the droid auction that would result in his Uncle acquiring both R2-D2 and C-3PO.
Hamill will next be seen reprising his role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi set to hit theaters this Holiday season.
The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, and Andy Serkis.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15, 2017.
Hamill also stars in Minkow which is set to release sometime during 2017.
