The Symbolism of Hand Amputations in Star Wars

(YouTube link)

If you've been following the Star Wars saga, you've no doubt noticed how many times someone's hand gets lopped off. And occasionally a leg or two. It's easy to do and not have the victim bleed out, because a lightsaber cauterizes the wound instantly, which is also handy to avoid a lot of blood on screen. A surprise in the new movie Solo has even more implications for the survivability of severe amputations. This video from Screen Prism does a deep dive into amputations and the psychological symbolism they have. -via Laughing Squid
