Mark Hamill took to Twitter yesterday to share some Star Wars trivia from 1976 that explains what was going on during filming of the Death Star trench run scenes….
Because of a record heatwave in England when we filmed the original #StarWars, most of the pilots wore only the top-half of their costume, attacking the Death Star wearing shorts. #TrueStory https://t.co/RSgZRneft9

The Death Star trench run is one of the most iconic moments of the film, will you ever be able to watch it in the same way again?
