Mark Hamill talks about his unexpected participation in the end of the Mandalorian season 2

Disney confirmed a few days ago that on August 25 we could see on its streaming platform a new episode of the Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian series that would focus on the end of Chapter 16: The rescue of The Mandalorian .

This chapter had the stellar appearance of Mark Hamill , but he did so with many fewer years behind him, thanks to a digital recreation that will be explained more fully in the new episode of Disney Gallery .

To whet your appetite, the actor was the other night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he spoke a bit about his character’s reappearance in The Mandalorian : “ I never thought I would do it again , and I thought if they ever told stories of Luke at that time – after the originals and the prequels – would find a suitable actor for his age . ”

“So when Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni told me what they wanted to do, I was stunned, ” says Hamill. And it is not for less, the return of the young Luke Skywalker left everyone who saw the series with their mouths open, but it was not easy to keep the secret of this shocking return.

“ One of the main things with The Mandalorian is that you swear to secrecy. I can’t talk about it with my family , not even now! ”, Says the actor, who did not want to reveal much more in the interview, inviting us to see the special chapter of Disney Gallery where we will see more closely how so much secrecy gave rise to the final result.

The Mandalorian is a great production with many people involved and with an audience that is always eager for more information about its development. Nor should it have been easy to keep the identity of Grogu secret , known until last season simply as the Child , or Baby Yoda to friends.
