While most fans weren’t happy with the sequel trilogy (Luke Skywalker in same especially), Disney+’s Star Wars content has been well received, with loads of new shows coming to the streaming service, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has promised that there is a story for everyone in a galaxy far, far away.
Along that line, FandomWire is reporting that Lucasfilm and Disney+ are in the early stages of developing a Luke Skywalker series set around the time era of The Mandalorian. Having been kept a secret in The Mandalorian‘s second season finale, Mark Hamill surprised fans with a de-aged look of the character. No word on who is set to direct or produce, but as reported the project is in early development.
There are talks being held on if Mark Hamill should return with the de-aging technology, but currently the studio is reportedly leaning towards a recast due to the expense and imperfections of the tech. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier star Sebastian Stan is one name being considered for the role of the iconic Jedi. That casting would be sure to make fans very happy. Though it may be a recast, reports indicate Hamill is more than willing to let Stan play his character. Stay tuned.
