Hamill Celebrates The Mandalorian’s Surprises
Mark Hamill is thrilled nobody knew what was coming in the Season 2 finale….
There were rumblings. Speculation was rampant.
And — well, in the spirit of the article, go elsewhere if you haven’t yet seen The Mandalorian Season 2 finale.
In the meantime, check out this photo of a “Death Star” droid.
Nobody really knew who might show up to save The Child in Chapter 16.
By now, most fans know that The Rescue featured the return of Luke Skywalker, de-aged Mark Hamill, coming to Grogu’s rescue.
However, virtually nobody knew what was coming.
Seen anything good on TV lately?

And Hamill is “here for it.” BTW: Did I say that correctly?
Anyway. Hamill reveled in the idea his inclusion remained a secret.
This past weekend, Alexandria Del Rosario of Deadline posted:
The fact that we were able to keep my involvement a secret for over a year with no leaks is nothing less than a miracle. A real triumph for spoiler-haters everywhere!#LooseLipsSinkStarships #STFU pic.twitter.com/TOBqlXYyHN

“The fact that we were able to keep my involvement a secret for over a year with no leaks is nothing less than a miracle,” Hamill tweeted on Saturday. “A real triumph for spoiler-haters everywhere!”
Hamill also added the hashtags #LooseLipsSinkStarships and #STFU to his tweet.
While Hamill’s iconic character made his Mandalorian debut, it wasn’t the actor’s first time appearing on the Disney+ series. Back in June the behind-the-scenes series Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian revealed that Hamill had previously appeared in the Pedro Pascal-led show, though not as Skywalker.
Honestly, spoiler don’t bother me very much. But I am very happy to have not known what would occur.
It make the build-up to the final episode that much better.
And the episode was good. Really good.
The young Jedi master showed up in a moment that was both exciting and heartbreaking — he saved Mando and Baby Yoda from Moff Gideon, but he took Grogu from his adopted space dad. But, hey, Mando was trying to trying to get Baby Yoda to the Jedi all season, so technically this was mission accomplished.
It’s pretty cool that we got a Luke Skywalker appearance in “The Mandalorian” — he’s pretty much the face of the franchise, after all, and his cameo lends some extra weight to the events of the show. It’s even cooler that Lucasfilm managed to keep that massive spoiler a secret for a year.
