‘Star Wars’ legend Mark Hamill has shared what’s thought to be the first ever image of him as the iconic Luke Skywalker.

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.
Disney has confirmed that ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ will include key scenes shot with IMAX cameras especially for the cinematic screening format. The announcement was made by Disney as it announced details of a renewed deal with the company to bring its biggest films to the hundreds of enormous IMAX screens worldwide. Disney also named other films on its slate that will be part-shot in IMAX, including: ‘Black Panther’, ‘Captain Marvel’, ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, ‘The Incredibles 2’, ‘Toy Story 4’, ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’, ‘Indiana Jones 5’, ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ and the live-action adaptation of ‘Mulan’.
Disney and Lucasfilm have announced that the eighth live action ‘Star Wars’ film will be called ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is the next chapter of the Skywalker saga. The previous two mid-trilogy titles ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘Attack of the Clones’ were four-word titles leading fans to speculate up the wrong tree, but the beauty of ‘The Last Jedi’ as a title is that Jedi is both the singular and plural of the word, so it refers to Luke Skywalker AND Rey at the same time.
