Mark Hamill Talks About Star Wars’ Pleasantly Strange Connection To David Bowie

Star Wars might have little to do with David Bowie other than the fact that two are centered around space, but Mark Hamill has a "fun fact" about the original 1977 movie and music's favorite starman.

Taking to Twitter, the Star Wars legend decided to share an exceptionally interesting tidbit involving Bowie from the production of Star Wars: Episode IV –A New Hope back in 1976. According to Hamill, when he was working on A New Hope and climbed inside the Dewback right outside the Cantina in Tunisia, he discovered a newspaper that included a review of David Bowie's concert in Paris.

The review was on a newspaper mache covering a crowbar that was meant to lift the Dewback's head, and Hamill decided to read the review by flashlight.

The tweet got a lot of love from netizens, and followers decided to follow-up with the post by asking what the review of Bowie's concert had said. Hamill replied that it was "A rave review!" and got a lot of love from fans.


Though it's been a while since Bowie's passing in 2016, there's still a lot of love going around for the legendary musician who touched lives with songs like Space Oddity, Life On Mars, Under Pressure, and Rebel Rebel.

Mark Hamill's latest Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently available on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD.
