NOTICE: SPOILERS from the end of Season 2 of The Mandalorian

A new Disney + special focusing on The Mandalorian season 2 finale has revealed how the team brought Luke Skywalker back and kept him a secret using Jedi Master Plo Koon as a cover.

You might believe that one of The Mandalorian series' biggest secrets was Grogu, affectionately known as Baby Yoda, and he's partly right. Disney kept Grogu a secret for as long as he could, but is it the series' best-kept secret? Now here near. The return of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker for the end of Season 2 of The Mandalorian is to this day the biggest secret in the series and one of the biggest in Star Wars. So much so that he even fooled much of the crew and cast.

How did they keep the secret? Telling a big lie: They used Jedi Master Plo Koon in the script where Luke was supposed to be. This meant that many of the cast and crew members assumed that Plo Koon was the Jedi who adopts Grogu as a young Padawan. Why Plo Koon? He is Dave Filoni's favorite.

For those who do not know him, Plo Koon was one of the Jedi masters who did not survive Order 66, who was very present in the clone wars through the animated series The Clone Wars and who led Ahsoka to the Jedi temple to become Padawan.

Meanwhile, Jon Favreau was struggling to get Mark Hamill to reprise the role of him as Luke Skywalker for the end of The Mandalorian Season 2. To convince him, he brought the script for the episode and a replica of Grogu to Mark Hamill, and ... it didn't take much more effort to convince him.

"I assumed they would get an age-appropriate actor for him," Hamill said of Luke's return in The Mandalorian. "I didn't really think about it much, I thought, 'Oh if they wanted to tell Luke stories after Return of the Jedi, I wonder who they'd get.' When they said they were going to use the de-aging process that they used in the movies of Marvel, my jaw dropped. I didn't answer right away, I mean, I had to think about it. The more I thought about it, I thought, 'This is like a completely unexpected opportunity, but almost a responsibility.' In other words, if they tell me they want me to do this, how could I say no?

While the technology used to rejuvenate Mark Hamill and bring Luke Skywalker back is impressive, music also played a role. In fact, Luke's appearance is the first time we've heard John Williams' music from the original trilogy in the episode. All of this ended up forming a scene that touched both the team and the fans due to the excitement and the hit of nostalgia.

While we don't know if Luke Skywalker and Grogu will return, we do know that The Mandalorian will return for a third season, production of which will begin soon now that filming on The Book of Boba Fett has ended.
