Highlights
  • Mark Hamill returned as Luke Skywalker in season 2 finale
  • Special episode to focus on tech used in recreating young Luke
  • The Mandalorian season 3 is not due until 2022 at least

The Mandalorian is getting a special behind-the-scenes that will highlight the return of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker in the season 2 finale “Chapter 16: The Rescue”, showcasing “the cutting-edge technology that was used to bring post-Star Wars: Return of the Jedi prime Luke back”. Dubbed “Making of the Season 2 Finale”, the special extra episode of Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian — the official title of The Mandalorian's behind-the-scenes making-of series — will release Wednesday, August 25 on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar.

Here's more on The Mandalorian season 2's Luke Skywalker special behind-the-scenes episode:

“Making of the Season 2 Finale” is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this celebrated “chapter” of The Mandalorian, with a focus on the technology used for recreating Luke Skywalker. It delves into the collaborative process, including working with Mark Hamill, to create an authentic and fitting recreation, and explores the immense pressure and responsibility the filmmakers had in bringing back one of the most important characters in film history.

I'm sure a lot went into it and the process was challenging, but Hamill's digitally de-aged young Luke was far from convincing, as I said then in my recap of The Mandalorian season 2 finale.

That included five nominations for the season 2 finale “Chapter 16: The Rescue”, for writing (creator Jon Favreau), background music (Ludwig Göransson), editing (Adam Gerstel), stunts (Lateef Crowder), and hairstyling (Maria Sandoval, Ashleigh Childers, and Wendy Southard).

Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian “Making of the Season 2 Finale” drops Wednesday, August 25 on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar wherever available. As it will be only in English in India, it will be exclusive to Disney+ Hotstar Premium that costs Rs. 299 per month or Rs. 1,499 per year.
