A terrifying new theory about the presence of the Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, third installment of the original trilogy of the saga starring Mark Hamill.
This is an element that the interpreter of Luke Skywalker had never considered, highlighted in the post that you find at the bottom of the article: Did the lovely Ewoks actually eat anyone?
This is what a Twitter user asked himself, upsetting the dreams of Mark Hamill: in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Princess Leia is the first of her team to encounter an Ewok, and when the rest of the crew are captured by the furry little animals, they find Leia already at the Ewok village, dressed up in new clothes. The princess shows off a new and never seen dress up to that point, so where did those garments come from? There is no trace of other humans in the Ewok village, and it certainly hasn't been long enough for the Ewoks to make that dress specifically for Leia. The theory therefore holds that the dress was already there, casting an eerie light on the adorable furry beings: Did they eat a human woman and keep her clothes? Mark Hamill himself is scared about it.
Beyond this frightening suggestion, however, we know - from some films made for TV and today considered non-canonical - that the Ewoks in the past met other humans before de Return of the Jedi, and according to some the dress Leia wore may have belonged to Catarine Towani, protagonist of the tv movie Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, released in 1984 under the direction of John Korty.
