(Warning: the following could theoretically - but probably doesn't - contain SPOILERS for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Perhaps proceed with mild caution all the same though?)

Now, if there's one question that's been on the tip of every Star Wars fan's tongue in recent months, it's this: "Where in the hell is Luke Skywalker?" He has, after all, remained largely hidden throughout one of the most highly saturated marketing campaigns in years, which is... a little odd, considering he was the main lead in the original Star Wars trilogy.

And so, the burning question of just what's happened to Luke looks set to continue right up until we head into theaters next week to watch Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens for the first time.

Or will it?

Mark Hamill May Have Just Teased Exactly Where Luke Has Been Hiding All This Time

That, y'see, is a picture that Hamill recently posted to his Facebook page - one that might just give us a subtle hint as to exactly where Luke has been hiding this whole time.

So, the big question, then?

Just Where Has Luke Been Hiding?

Well, just what that image might be telling us very much depends on which way you want to interpret it. Here are two possible routes:

1. Hamill Chose His Newspaper Carefully

Specifically, the logic goes, Hamill wouldn't have posted a picture of him with just any newspaper asking after Luke's location - he would have chosen one carefully, for maximum subtle spoiler-provision.

In which case, Luke is presumably hiding on the forest moon of Endor, Dagobah, or the Millennium Falcon - all of which appear in images around the question.

Alternatively, of course...

2. Hamill Is Simply Messing With Us

Now, by this logic, Hamill was simply posting an interesting - and relevant - headline asking after Luke's location... just to mess with us.

Which actually makes sense, when you think about it. Imagine you're Mark Hamill, sitting down to take a break and read a newspaper, when you come across a headline asking where your most famous character is - a location you absolutely know, and aren't allowed to tell anyone. Would you really be able to resist teasing your legions of fans by posting that to social media?

I'm not sure I would...

What do you think, though?
