This makes me shiver every time I see it. 😳😩
I don’t remember doing this in the movie. I think it’s just a production on set, otherwise Obi-Wan wouldn’t look so carefree. 🙄 https://t.co/WXH4Ng0OzX

Hamill has raised the question of whether this photo was taken directly from the film or is not just a production, but now there appears to be a shutdown on the actor’s part. Hamill says: “I don’t remember doing this in the movieAnd many fans on Twitter can corroborate the fact that the meme is a still photo and does not actually appear in the movie. This seems to be enough to end the debate, although it does not prevent Hamill from being embarrassed. “every time”He sees the meme.
The fact that the image persists as a popular meme seems unsettling to Hamill, but the set photo is nothing out of place for Luke. At the time Obi-Wan gave him his father’s lightsaber, Luke was still a moisture farmer on Tatooine and unfamiliar with Jedi weapons. While the photo is not actually of A new hope, it still makes for a funny meme.
