Mark Hamill took to Twitter this weekend to debunk some incorrect Star Wars information, or a “#FalseStory” as he called it. It started when a fan was trying to figure out what Luke Skywalker says in a scene from the first film, Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope, after he destroys the Death Star, according to CinemaBlend.

A key issue for clarification is that Luke doesn’t exactly say anything. It sounds more like a yell than anything else, but nevertheless, the fan tweeted out: “Still cry EVERY DAMN TIME Han flies in allowing Luke to destroy DS. Now does he really say "Carrie!" when hugging Leia as he deplanes? Sounds like an excited shriek to me. Has this been confirmed?”

The ongoing rumor is apparently that Hamill yells “Carrie,” accidentally saying co-star Carrie Fisher’s real name instead of her character’s name, Leia Organa, when he runs to hug her.

Hamill’s response on Twitter debunked this idea, however, noting that this wasn’t even the first time he had to deny it.

Stranger Things is great at placing the truly terrifying alongside the absolutely adorable. One minute we are gushing over Eleven and Mike’s teen romance, and the next we’re jumping off the couch at the sight of those possessed by the Mind Flayer.

No matter how seamless the Duffer Brothers' Netflix series is in weaving together these moments, it seems like it would be impossible to make the Demogorgon cute. But somehow, one crafty fan has done just that.

Etsy shop ThatCraftyFriendShop has created Demogorgon headpieces that fit perfectly on your dog’s head.

People reports that the headpieces range in size from extra small (for 5- to 10-pound dogs) all the way to extra large (for dogs over 75 pounds). Prices range from $25 to $75, depending on the size of your four-legged friend.

These wool and felt doggy costumes are perfect for Halloween, or even a Stranger Things watch party while you continue to binge and re-binge the third seasonwith a decked-out doggy by your side.

J.K. Rowling Reveals How San Francisco Inspired Major Harry Potter Location

The award-winning play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is about to open at the Curran Theater in San Francisco. The two-part drama takes place 19 years after the events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and depicts Harry’s life as his son, Albus, is about to begin school at Hogwarts.

J.K. Rowling has pointed out that San Francisco had a deep influence on the original Harry Potter novels, SFGate reports. In the video below, Rowling talks about how Alcatraz, the infamous former prison, inspired her creation of Azkaban.

"[San Francisco] is a very distinctive, special place—I love the feel of it, I love the architecture,” Rowling said. “I've actually said this before, but Azkaban is a combination of Alcatraz and Abbadon, which is an old word for hell. I squeezed those words together. The idea of the rock in the middle of the ocean was directly inspired by a visit to Alcatraz."

With its mist and Gothic mood, it’s no wonder this slice of San Francisco inspired a big part of the Harry Potter world.
