In the case of the following collection of intriguing truths and features, though, there's a solid chance that - just like a certain Princess of Alderaan - somehow you actually always knew these pieces of information were a thing.

You likely had a funny feeling there was something familiar about the voice of an iconic Force user's mother. You possibly sensed you weren't simply watching a legendary actor only offer their voice for a character's unexpected return. And the fact the name of well-known locations in the galaxy were spoken long before their official debut has probably been buried down deep within you for a long time (a long time).

But not for much longer, folks, because this wonderful list is about to reveal a whopping ten more facts about the Star Wars universe that have likely been lying dormant in your mind for a millennium.

10. Luke Skywalker Asked 118 Questions In The Original Trilogy

The Empire Strikes Back Yoda R2-D2 Luke Skywalker

Even those who have only ever experienced one full viewing of the original Star Wars trilogy will have quickly come to the conclusion that the farmboy-turned-Jedi known as Luke Skywalker is a rather curious soul.

During Episodes IV-VI, Luke can regularly be found enquiring about everything from the Force to who his real father is, acting as the audience surrogate for much of his time on-screen in those first three flicks.

So, it likely won't come as too much of a surprise to discover that Mark Hamill actually ended up chucking out a grand total of 118 questions over the course of his appearances in A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

That's according to one meme on X/Twitter anyway, with Hamill himself actually spotting the fun fact and noting how the idea of a fan counting the amount of questions Luke asked made him smile.

Not if they did it out loud, though, "that's just rude & irritating & probably ruined those movies for the entire audience," as Hamill put it.

At a glance it may seem like a hell of a number of Skywalker queries. But the more you think about it, the more you've likely always known this inquisitive icon was an almost bottomless pit of questions.
