Luke Skywalker made a surprise return in The Mandalorian season 2 finale, saving Din Djarin and his allies from certain death at the hands of a legion of Darktroopers, and taking Grogu under his wing to train him in the ways of the force.
Although some disputed Luke’s cameo, most fans were very happy to see the legendary Jedi again, and actor Mark Hamill has now used Twitter to express his appreciation for having had the opportunity to reprise the role following what was believed to be his last appearance as a force ghost in The Rise of Skywalker.
Sometimes the greatest gifts are the unexpected and something that you never realized you want as long as it was not given, he said Hamill in his tweet, thanking the creator Jon Favreau series and executive producer Dave Filoni.
The actor also shared a fan reaction video, adding, “# The # NoWords-Seeing fan reactions to Luke’s return are something I will love forever. Their wait to see the X-Wing / Ep. 6 Robes / a lightsaber / a GREEN lightsaber / a gloved hand / a hand without gloves / a suffocating force / R2 is very moving to me.
