December will mark one year since the second season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian came to and an end, but a new episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, "Making of the Season 2 Finale," was released this week, and revealed some interesting behind-the-scenes facts about the series. Fans got to see some new behind-the-scenes footage of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, and it was revealed in the new documentary episode that director Peyton Reed used Jedi Master and High Council member Plo Koon in the concept art for The Mandalorian finale in order to hide the fact that Luke was going to show up. Reed, who directed two episodes of the second season, also took to Twitter today to share a behind-the-scenes photo of Hamill with Grogu AKA Baby Yoda.
"Thanks again, @HamillHimself, for an unforgettable experience. ❤️," Reed wrote. You can check out the photo below:
