Actor Mark Hamill remembers when fans thought the first “Star Wars” film was a joke and says the audience laughed during the cinematic debut.
The 65-year-old actor, who starred as Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker in the three original sci-fi films, says fans made fun of the project when “A New Hope” hit screens back in 1977. “At the end of the trailer it said: ‘a billion light years in the making. And it’s coming to your galaxy this summer.’ Somebody in the balcony yelled out: ‘yeah and it’s coming to the Late Show two weeks after that’,” he says.

The actor, who was at the screening with his now-late co-star Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia, says they both giggled with the crowd but adds that they were horrified.
Hamill recently returned to the ‘Star Wars’ franchise for the 2015 “The Force Awakens” and will be starring in the upcoming “The Last Jedi”.
