THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT Stills Confirm Mark Hamill Shot All Of Luke Skywalker's Scenes In The Show
Some newly revealed behind the scenes images from The Book of Boba Fett confirm Mark Hamill was on set to shoot Luke Skywalker's return, including key moments with Ahsoka Tano and Grogu. Check them out...
While fans had their minds blown by Luke Skywalker's return in The Mandalorian, there were some criticisms aimed at the quality of visual effects used to make Mark Hamill look as he did at the time Return of the Jedi was released. The FX were a lot better for the Jedi Knight's appearance in The Book of Boba Fett, though details on how that was achieved left us under the impression that Hamill wasn't involved.
Actor Graham Hamilton served as a stand-in for the young Luke, while clever Deepfake technology was used to de-age Hamill's face and put it on the actor's body. As for the character's voice, it was synthesized in a computer, resulting in fans wondering if the original Luke Skywalker was even needed.
Well, it turns out Hamill was present on set. Suited and booted as the iconic Star Wars character, it looks like he was in every single scene, probably as a reference for the visual effects teams.
It's awesome that Hamill was able to lend his talents to The Book of Boba Fett in this way and we hope the trend continues. You can see much more of him on the show's set by checking out the latest Disney Gallery special now streaming on Disney+, but you'll find some stills from the episode below along with a new photo shared by Rosario Dawson of her hanging out with the two Lukes on the show's set.
