There have been a plethora of Star Wars-related theories throughout the years, from Jar Jar Binks' alleged true identity as a Sith Lord to Supreme Leader Snoke actually being the famed Darth Plagueis The Wise, but there's one conspiracy theory that most fans probably haven't heard of and turns out, it dates back to the original trilogy of the franchise.

The said theory, which even has a Wikipedia page specially dedicated to it insists that the first three films in the Skywalker saga actually featured two Luke Skywalkers, one tiny bit shorter than the other. Referring to the two Lukes as "Luke Prime" (the original) and "Bigger Luke" (the alleged doppelganger), the wild conspiracy theory has apparently been debated by fans on the internet over the years and just recently, it finally caught the attention of Mark Hamill himself.

Taking to Twitter, the ever-so-social-media-savvy Star Wars icon addressed the long-standing theory once and for all and called it "absurd". In a subsequent post, the Luke Skywalker actor provided fans with "photographic proof" verifying the existence of the two Skywalkers most of us probably missed this whole time. Well, except he was clearly poking fun at the crazy theory. Check it out here:

It still remains a mystery how this entire "Luke Prime" and "Bigger Luke" debacle started but one thing is for sure, there is, has been, and always will be ONE Luke Skywalker and no amount of crazy fan theories will ever change that. Although we may have to rewatch Episodes IV, V, and VI just to be sure.
