Star Wars: What Happened to Luke Skywalker's Hand?

Star Wars

Ever since the movie Star Wars: Episode 5 - The Empire Strikes Back hit theaters in 1980, millions of fans have been wondering what actually happened to Luke Skywalker's severed hand. Theories and speculations are endless, but official sources have not provided any details - until now. Because meanwhile this question has been answered, at least partially.

The information on this is provided by the eleventh edition of "Marvel Comics' Darth Vader", which is currently running with great success, especially in the USA. In the latest issue, the story arc "Into the Fire" comes to an end. Its events take place after Star Wars: Episode 5 - The Empire Strikes Back and show Darth Vader, who wants to confront the Emperor Palpatine on the planet Exegol. As this confrontation works in favor of Palpatine, Vader has to fight his way through the catacombs of the Sith Temple. There you will not only find numerous clone containers with "defective copies" of Snoke, but also a container with a preservative solution. A severed right hand swims in it. It is in all likelihood the hand of Luke Skywalker, which the Emperor or one of his henchmen was able to recover on the planet Bespin in order to keep it - for whatever purpose. Maybe to finally create Snoke from the contained DNA?

What do you think of this new revelation in the Star Wars universe, for which many fans had to wait more than 40 years? Is it too far-fetched or another important piece in the great puzzle of mysteries? Let us know in the comments!

Star Wars’ Mark Hamill Shares Hilarious Video Of Harrison Ford Dropping F-Bomb After Magic Trick

It’s no secret that Star Wars is a worldwide phenomenon that has entertained audiences for decades. Plenty of moviegoers were brought up on George Lucas’ colorful world, making actors Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford icons in the process. And Hamill recently shared a hilarious video of Ford dropping an F-Bomb following a magic trick.

Both Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are known for their signature personalities, as well as portraying beloved Star Wars characters. Hamill regularly shares tidbits about their time together, to the delight of fans. And when a video went viral of Ford freaking out over practical magic, Hamill couldn’t help but offer his two cents. Check it out below.

While Han Solo might believe in The Force, it looks like magic has the ability to still freak Harrison Ford out. So much so that he’s willing to tell you to get the hell out of his house. And according to Mark Hamill, that’s typical behavior of his co-star and friend.

Mark Hamill shared the hilarious video of Harrison Ford over on his personal Twitter account. Hamill is super active on social media, and is constantly communicating with the Star Wars fandom. So it makes sense that Hamill would have his own take on the viral video of Ford dropping an F-bomb.

The Skywalker Saga is currently available in its entirety on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.

In Harrison Ford’s defense, the magic trick shown in the video is pretty mind blowing. Somehow the magician managed to get Ford’s card into the middle of a fruit innocently sitting in his kitchen. It’s a wild trick, one that convinced Indiana Jones to promptly kick the magician out of his home.

The relationship shared between Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill makes their respective characters’ fates in the Star Wars sequel trilogy somewhat upsetting. Han and Luke never actually reunited, with Han being killed by Kylo Ren before Luke appeared for the first time in The Force Awakens’ final scene. Hamill himself has expressed his own disappointment in this plot choice, but that was unfortunately how the cookie crumbled.

It should be interesting to see what comes next for Star Wars on the big screen. While TV shows like The Mandalorian are getting a ton of focus, all future movies could be free from connections to Skywalker Saga. The first of these projects is Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron, so the pressure is on.

Harrison Ford may have retired as Han Solo, but he’ll be reprising his role as Indiana Jones in another sequel. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
