Mark Hamill shares family photos from 'Return of the Jedi'

The photos focus on his toddler having fun on the set with Ewoks, Yoda, R2-D2 and more.

How many of you have Ewoks in your family portraits? Here is Mark Hamill, Marilou Hamill and their son Nathan on the set of "Return of the Jedi."

Most people have childhood memories of dressing up for Halloween or visiting a parent's workplace. But imagine the memories you'd have if you got to run around with Ewoks, play with droids and pretend to have Force powers because your dad happened to play Luke Skywalker in the "Star Wars" saga.

"Star Wars" actor Mark Hamill last week shared family photos on of his son Nathan Hamill having a blast as a little kid on the set of "Return of the Jedi."

Nathan was born Sept. 25, 1979, when Hamill was still in England shooting "The Empire Strikes Back." When "Return of the Jedi" came along, Nathan was able to join his dad on set to chat with Yoda in the creature shop, hide inside R2-D2 and pose with Ewoks.

"By that time he'd become a 'Star Wars' fan," Hamill said in a video interview published last week. "He wasn't even 3 years old. He probably doesn't even remember it as much as these pictures will bring it back to him. I'd forgotten he'd put on a Ewok head and sat in the Emperor's throne. And he's all over that set."
