It’s been over a year since the Season 2 finale of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, but the Disney+ series continues to be brought up time and time again. One of the standout aspects of the season finale was the return of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who made a surprise appearance in the episode to take Grogu into his Jedi training. Before that happened, however, Luke had an epic streak taking out a group of Dark Troopers – and a new LEGO set immortalizes it in epic fashion. The set, which has surfaced online, shows Luke running through the hallway to take out the Dark Trooper (admittedly, this raises the question of why we didn’t get an official set for Darth Vader’s similar scene in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).

“Talk about the unexpected,” Hamill said of the cameo during a previous appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Last year. “I was done playing that role, I didn’t expect to do it again and I thought if they did Luke stories at that time – release the originals and the pre-sequels – they would have a suitable actor for their age. So when Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni told me what they wanted to do, I was just stunned. The Mandalorian is that you have sworn to secrecy. I can’t talk about it with my family, even now!”

The very idea of ​​Luke appearing on The Mandalorian surprised fans, especially considering that it went largely unreported until the Season 2 finale.

“It was very tricky because it’s very difficult to keep a secret these days, especially with star warsbecause people are so curious about it,” said The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau. hello america shortly after the Season 2 finale. “There are so many people involved in the process, with the visual effects finishing, directing, filming, studios, everything.”

“But we started the whole series with the Baby Yoda reveal, with the Grogu reveal, that was a secret that really blew everyone’s mind,” Favreau continued. “Part of that is not telling too many people about it, not having merchandise that’s tooled and advertised and that sort of thing.”

All episodes of The Mandalorian are now streaming only on Disney+. If you haven’t signed up for Disney+ yet, you can try it out here.
