Mark Hamill responds to a disturbing Star Wars theory that had been making rounds for quite some time.
Star Wars icon Mark Hamill is addressing a disturbing fan theory about the Ewoks (species of small, furry mammaloid bipeds) in Return of the Jedi (1983), and it appears he’s just as confused as we are.
Over three decades since Star Wars: Episode VI hit theatres, Luke Skywalker star Mark Hamill has reacted to the suggestion that the Ewoks could have slaughtered and even ingested somebody in order to obtain a dress for Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher).
Brad Meltzer, an American novelist, brought the concept to Mark’s notice on Twitter after uploading a meme that read:
How could the Ewoks have a dress that fit Leia… unless they cooked and ate a woman her size?
Implying that the Ewoks might not be as affectionate as they seem, Hamill responded, “I’m trying NOT to think about it.”
I'm trying NOT to think about it. 😩 https://t.co/zLd6kDvdG8

And, given the species’ reaction to Luke Skywalker and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in the hit 1983 movie, we’re not shocked to learn that Mark is not refuting the possibility.
The Bigger Luke hypothesis argues that the Jedi hero features in the epic space franchise at two different heights – either because an unattributed, taller doppelganger took on those scenes, or because a Bigger Luke resides in canon.
It’s hard to believe how long we were able to fool everyone, but to be fair: the only time both of us appeared together at the same time was with Kermit on The Muppet Show. #BiggerThanRegular.
It’s fair to say Mark Hamill loves teasing the fans!
