The renowned and charismatic American actor Mark Hamill used his social networks to refer to the end of the second season of The Mandalorian.
Remember that in the last minutes from episode 16 or 2 × 08 of the series a young Luke Skywalker appears, showing a rejuvenated Hamill.
Luke has a fight against droids from the former Empire, which is a tribute to the iconic final scene of Darth Vader in the movie Rogue One.
Then, he meets Grogu (Baby Yoda) and takes him away for training, leaving behind an excited Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal).
Through his official Twitter account, the interpreter showed his happiness for this cameo, thanking the producers for this “gift”.
“Sometimes the best gifts are the most unexpected and something you never realized you wanted until it was given to you”, wrote the actor. “Thanks Jon and Dave”he added, alluding to Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.
