The season two finale of The Mandalorian left fans with an emotionally charged twist.
The episode, titled 'The Rescue' is highly memorable for the revelation of the one and only Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill himself. Perhaps the most notable aspect of the reveal was that even though it was filmed in 2020, Hamil appeared to look just exactly as he was in the original 70s Star Wars films. This is due to the innovative use of state of the art digital de-aging and facial replacement technology. For anyone who might be interested in this fascinating aspect of production, Disney+ has good news.
Disney+ is releasing a special behind the scenes episode that focuses on the technological recreation of the legendary character that is young Luke Skywalker. According to a press release by Disney+, "It delves into the collaborative process, including working with Mark Hamill, to create an authentic and fitting recreation, and explores the immense pressure and responsibility the filmmakers had in bringing back one of the most important characters in film history."
The Mandalorian led the 73rd Emmy nominations with a whopping 24 nods, including Outstanding Drama Series.
'Making of the Season 2 Finale' premieres on August 25th on Disney+.
