Like many other people, Mark Hamil, Luke Skywalker, and Star Wars films have been very inspiring in Wen’s life. Furthermore, her sharing screen with the iconic actor was truly life-changing. As the fans loved Hamil on the show, we expect him to make more guest appearances.
In the finale of Season 2, Fennec, Bo Katan, Koska Reeves, Cara Dune, and Mando entered Moff Gideon’s Imperial cruiser. Moreover, they killed Stormtroopers in order to save Grogu. But the Dark Troopers arrive, and they realize that they are unsafe. Fortunately, an X-Wing and a mysterious cloaked Jedi arrived for help.
The Jedi turned out to be the younger, post-Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker. Moreover, Luke took Grogu away from Mando during an emotional moment. The goodbyes were definitely hard but it is for Mando’s own good as the fans believe.
Mark Hamil’s Unexpected Gift
Not only Wen was amused with Hamil returning on the show; Even the iconic actor felt super happy after his small appearance. Hamil posted on Twitter and talked about his recent visit to The Mandalorian season 2.
