‘Star Wars’: First Ever Photo Of Luke Skywalker Revealed

On Saturday afternoon, Mark Hamill tweeted out what is believed to be the first ever picture of Luke Skywalker on the set of the first Star Wars film.

Mark Hamill, a name synonymous with geeks everywhere, has revealed what is likely the first ever recorded picture of Luke Skywalker on the set of the original Star Wars. In a tweet on Saturday afternoon, Hamill revealed the picture which shows him dressed in his classic outfit in the desert of Tunisia. After his tweet, a fan asked him if he thought the film would be his first big break, which he replied with a cheeky comment. You can check both tweets out below.

Decades later after that picture was taken, Star Wars is arguably the biggest property out there, but that wasn’t always the case. Many of the cast and crew doubted what was being filmed, as something on this scale had never been made. No one anticipated this sort of success to come from the film, but here we are, as Star Wars dominates almost every market that is related to film.

This year’s Star Wars Celebration, which is in Orlando, will be commemorating the 40 year anniversary of the original film. It’s also expected that we’ll see our first look at the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, along with other reveals. The event kicks off on April 13th and will end on the 16th.

Directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, and newcomers to the franchise Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits cinemas on December 15th, 2017.
