Mark Hamill who is known for playing Luke Skywalker in Star Wars shares how the first lightsabers were made. Check out his latest tweet includes an image and a qoute from creator of Star Wars, George Lucas.

“It's impossible to find a toy lightsaber this inexpensive. Also, this reminds me that George Lucas once called #StarWars ‘the most expensive low-budget movie ever made.’ #FunFacts”

The image reads,“The lightsaber was created by using a handle from a 1940’s Graflex press camera. Seven pieces of t-strip were stuck around the bottom of the handle, along with an illuminator strip taken from a calculator. It cost £12 to make.”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker casts includes Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, and Keri Russell. Returning veteran actors are Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels and Carrie Fisher that will be featured in the movie using Star Wars: The Force Awakens unreleased footage.
