Watch: The Top 10 Most Famous Star Wars Myths Debunked
Star Wars is subject to more fan speculation, rumor-mongering, and in-depth analysis than almost any other franchise in the world, so naturally there are a few urban legends that have been blown out of proportion, and the ten most infamous ones have gotten the Mythbuster treatment in a great video from What Culture:


Some of these have already been debunked at length, such as Mark Hamill yelling "Carrie!" instead of "Leia!" at the end of A New Hope (he's actually saying "There she" as in "There she is!") or the appearance of Carrie Fischer's "coke nail" in Return of the Jedi (Fischer says that while she did do drugs on set, she used dollar bills and spoons "any other respectable former drug addict"). And there were many, many false rumors about The Force Awakens, since it was the first Star Wars movie to come out during the full-blown Internet age, but even the more mundane ones were overblown, like Harrison Ford getting his leg broken by the door of the Millennium Falcon (it was actually a garage door). 

The least surprising "reveal" by far is that George Lucas didn't actually have all of the Star Wars movies planned out from the beginning. Did anyone really believe he planned for Luke to sort of make out with his sister?
