CLASSIC IMAGE: A LOOMING DESTINY...
A horrified and shocked Luke sees the smoked-out carnage of the Lars Homestead left by Imperial Stormtroopers, and the grisly burned skeleton remains of his once Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen, in this all-important, destiny-making scene from the original STAR WARS.
Note that this image of Mark Hamill as Luke was taken whilst rehearsing the scene, prior to filming on an unseasonably cold Tunisian day in March/April 1976. At this point in the movie, Luke had not yet gotten his poncho.
