A bizarre video of Mark Hamill is circulating on Twitter. A fan account called @HamillMania shared a baffling 56-second reel of the actor, circa “Empire Strikes Back,” singing in German and prancing around a stage meant to mimic outer space in full disco glam, complete with platform boots and sleeves so wide, they could be eagle wings.

‘Star Wars’ legend Mark Hamill has shared what’s thought to be the first ever image of him as the iconic Luke Skywalker. Hamill, who’s a keen user of social media (largely Instagram and Twitter), posted the photo of him on the Tunisian set of 1977’s ‘Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope’ (as it became known). Posting to his Instagram and Twitter accounts – both @hamillhimself – the actor described the image and how it was “perhaps” the first ever snap of him in character.
His Star Wars crew apparently didn’t think much of this strange then-new sci-fi project, but Mark Hamill was duly impressed enough to hang on to a photo that the actor now suspects might be the first shot of him in character as Luke Skywalker. “Taken in Tunisia early morning Day #1 waiting for my 1st shot (emerging from home for robot auction),” Hamill tweeted today. “Perhaps the very 1st #LukePic.” Asked by a Twitter follower what he was thinking when the snapshot was…
‘Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi’ hits cinemas at the end of this year, so until then the world will continue to ask questions over what the title really means, who’s around to fight the First Order, and whether Luke Skywalker will be in the film for more than a silent minute this time.

Mark Hamill has long been a defender of George Lucas’s prequel trilogy, and 18 years after the release of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace, he still takes the insults personally. In an interview with Vulture at the Sundance Film Festival, where he was promoting his comedy Brigsby Bear, the man who plays Luke Skywalker said that he still can’t fathom the vitriol directed at the films. In particular, Hamill said, he’s “still angry” about the criticism directed at young Phantom Menace star Jake Lloyd.
Fans were left hanging at the end of “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” as Rey hands Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, his old lightsaber. “I haven’t seen this thing in years,” an astonished Hamill says in the video (above). Brandon Alinger of Prop Store LA brought the original movie prop from his personal collection to Hamill’s show.
"She was a handful, but my life would have been so much drabber if she hadn't been my friend," Hamill writes in a remembrance of his late 'Star Wars' co-star.
