The MandalorianSeason two of the season ended almost a month ago, but the buzz and excitement surrounding the finale continues to play out well into the New Year.
Directed by The ant Man coxswain Peyton Reed, The Mandalorian season two finale sees new faces from the Star wars the franchise comes with the classic characters that started it all. After traveling with the titular character, The Child (aka Baby Yoda or Grogu) joins Luke Skywalker (a CGI version of Mark Hamill) and R2-D2 to train Jedi-style.
For Reed, working with Luke himself was a dream come true, he revealed on social media.
“STAR WARS, and Luke Skywalker in particular, meant a lot to me,” Reed wrote to Hamill, sharing a black and white photo of the Star wars actor on set. “Some things never change.”
While Reed paid homage to the original Jedi, Hamill expressed his gratitude to the Ant-Man and the Wasp director for his work on the season finale.
“I’m so grateful that I had the unexpected opportunity to see my character again when he was still a symbol of hope and optimism,” Hamill wrote. “Your assured direction and kindness was a crucial part of the experience and means more to me than I can say.
I’m so grateful to have had the unexpected opportunity to revisit my character when he was still a symbol of hope and optimism.
