Disney and LucasFilm want to show Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies and series and for this, they are looking for a new actor to bring the beloved character to life.
Since 1977, when the first Star Wars movie was released, Mark Hamill has played Luke Skywalker 6 times. But if they want to make new stories focused on the time after Episode VI and the fall of the Empire, you need a younger actor, as they have decided not to rejuvenate him with CGI. And they already have the perfect candidate.
There are a lot of rumors around the internet lately that Luke Skywalker might be poised to appear again in Star Wars, either in a movie or in a cameo in The Mandalorian. In addition, for a while he has been linked to actor Sebastian Stan, the Winter Soldier at Marvel Studios, to take over. Now the new information is that LucasFilm wants the same as the fans, but they also want Mark Hamill to approve. Since precisely what they intend to avoid is that the veteran actor complains about social networks about the decision made by the study.
Will he appear in the second season of The Mandalorian?
They are currently broadcasting the new episodes of the second season of The Mandalorian on the Disney + streaming platform. In the fifth chapter, it is mentioned that the protagonist and Baby Yoda (Gorge) must travel to an ancient Jedi temple. There once they use the Force they must wait for a Jedi to feel it and appear. So it has been speculated that it could be Luke Skywalker himself who would have a cameo. Although it is something that we will have to wait to see when the next three episodes of this great Star Wars series are released.
It is also speculated that the Kenobi series will show Luke Skywalker as a child on Tatooine, although this Star Wars show has not yet begun filming.
