The Ending of The Empire Strikes Back Was Revealed in a Cereal Box in 1984


This week it was revealed the name of a few characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens on trading cards. Some people were surprised by Disney’s move. However, they are just following on the footsteps of Lucas Film! George Lucas’s company revealed much more accidentally in a cereal box called C3PO’s, a promotional brand that came with a mask of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on the back. On the back of a few of the Luke’s masks, reportedly 30 boxes had this issue, you could read the big reveal of the movie:

Darth Vader: Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke Skywalker: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!
Darth Vader: No. I am your father.

Also, the guy that knew the ending of ESB is also the same guy that knew Bruce Willis was dead from the beginning of the movie.
Also, if you have $2k laying around, you can totally buy a box of C3PO’s today.
