Mark Hamill probably had no idea how iconic the role of Luke Skywalker would end up as when he was cast in Star Wars back in the 70s, but now he seems to fully embrace his place in pop culture. Though fans may be looking for more leaks on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Hamill has posted a picture of himself at 24-years-old from the first day of shooting Star Wars.

Apparently, the first scene that Hamill shot was that of Uncle Owen buying the droids from the Jawas. Hamill also pointed out that this could be very well the first photo of him in full costume ever taken on set.


It's still a wonder how big Star Wars eventually ended up being. George Lucas himself was positive that the movie wouldn't do so well in the box office, but years after its release, Star Wars has become one of the most iconic franchises in entertainment, and has been something enjoyed by people from several generations.

Hamill will be returning as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi this year, and though he was absent for about 96 percent of The Force Awakens, fans are more than happy to see what happened to that farm boy from Tattooine 30 years after his adventure started.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will come out on Dec. 15.
