Mark Hamill Shares First Luke Skywalker Photo on New Hope set

Everyone in the Star Wars universe is gearing up for The Last Jedi.   At this point it’s almost as if the entire Star Wars: The Force Awakens film was a giant tease so that we could really get down to business and feature Luke Skywalker again.    During this next Star Wars round all eyes are going to be on Mark Hamill has he’s expected to carry a much bigger load in The Last Jedi.  We saw him for all of a few precious moments with Daisey Ridley but all of us knew that he’d be a focal point again.  As to what Luke Skywalker will do in The Last Jedi is up in the air.  Will he lead a war?  Will he train new Jedis?  What the hell is going on here?

If there’s one thing we won’t be short on at all, it’s speculation, teasers, photos, theories, you name it.  Speaking of which, if you follow Mark Hamill on social media you’ll know that A.  he’s extremely funny and B.  very generous in sharing personal pictures and nostalgia.   Over the weekend Hamill took the time to post the very first ever photo of him as Luke Skywalker on the set of A New Hope.

The photo shows Hamill as the famed Luke Skywalker on Tatooine with some Jawas hanging out in the background, photobombing like champs. Hamill posted the photo, much to the gushing of fans, saying this was not only his first day on set, but probably the first photo of him on set ever. There’s nothing revealing about it, but it’s still worthy of a place in our already loaded mental cache of set photos from the series. Hamill also responded to one user, reaffirming his faith in the movie from day one, even though not everyone shared his enthusiasm.

Nothing shocking here and no new revelations but this is just awesome, don’t you think?
