The 39 Year Old ‘Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back’ Mistake We Haven't Noticed

Pablo Hidalgo of the Lucasfilm Story Group spotted the said error in the Wampa cave scene from the 1980s "Empire Strikes Back".

If you look closely, "NEW YORK" can be seen stamped into the bottom of Luke's lightsaber. Good luck on not seeing that when you watch  the star wars franchise again!

Visit the HuffPost for more details about this error that we now know.

As a member of the Star Wars costuming group, the 501st Legion, and a person who has dedicated a lot of time and resources ($$$) in building a screen accurate costume... IT'S JUST A MOVIE! Sure, there will be some inaccuracies within a beloved movie. Did you really notice it the first few times? If you look close enough at any movie, you will lose the suspense of disbelief. (The Force isn't real) Enjoy the movie for what it is. Take it from a grown adult, who wears what can be described as well crafted plastic trash can... I do it to make the Star Wars fans smile.
