Warning: SPOILERS ahead for The Book of Boba Fett episode 6!

Episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett brought back multiple familiar faces like Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. But the episode again kept its main character, Boba Fett, on the sidelines as it set up various storylines to play out in the finale of the show and lead into others.

Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin was again at the center after he came back in episode 5. We also got to know where Grogu and Luke were. This was a direct continuation from the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, where Luke saved Mando’s group from the Dark Troopers.

Then the Jedi Master decided to train Grogu as his padawan. This meant that Din and Grogu had to separate after they had strongly bonded as a result of their adventures. Many thought that we would get to know about Grogu and Luke’s training in season 3 of The Mandalorian.

But surprisingly, we saw them in episode 6 itself.

What Happened In Episode 6 Of The Book Of Boba Fett?

Din Djarin took his Starfighter and went to Luke’s fledgling Jedi Academy. But he didn’t get to meet Grogu. There Luke was busy teaching Baby Yoda about the Force.

Ahsoka Tano convinced Din that a strengthened emotional attachment could make training more difficult for Grogu. So Din left without meeting Grogu. But he left the gift he made for Grogu- that beskar armor, with Ahsoka.

Unlike Luke Skywalker’s memorable but short cameo in the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, here the Jedi Master was given a bigger screen time. But that expanded screen time brought filming challenges.

For the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, Mark Hamill himself came in to reprise his role as the iconic character. But it was in a limited capacity. We know that special effects were used to de-age Hamill. Apart from this, Max Lloyd-Jones was brought in as a Luke stand-in.

As for the voice of the character, the team used a synthesizer to accurately match what Mark Hamill would have sounded like 4 decades ago. It’s interesting to note that Hamill came back again to play Luke in The Book of Boba Fett as well. But it took way more VFX work this time.

Watching the credits for episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett, we noticed that Hamill came back to play his iconic role. But along with him, others played a role in bringing Luke Skywalker to life.

This time Scott Lang has been listed as Luke’s stunt double, and Graham Hamilton was credited as the performance artist. It’s unsurprising to see so many figures involved in bringing a young Luke to life.

After all, this time, Luke was more physical in his appearance while training Grogu. He showed his control of the Force and lightsaber skills. Even though Lloyd-Jones wasn’t the stand-in this time around, he did show up in the last episode as Lieutenant Reed.

Luke’s CGI de-aged appearance on The Mandalorian has provoked some criticism. Some said that the VFX wasn’t smooth, and this made Luke Skywalker look like something out of the uncanny valley.

Many even wanted Sebastian Stan to get cast as Luke Skywalker. However, The Book of Boba Fett improved on the previous VFX, and this time young Luke Skywalker looked natural.

Maybe it’s because they finally hired the guy who fixed Luke’s appearance on The Mandalorian on his YouTube channel. But even then, there are questions about his voice.

We don’t know right now if Mark Hamill gave his voice to the character in The Book of Boba Fett like he did in The Mandalorian. But this is probably what happened because unlike Corey Burton, listed as Cad Bane’s voice actor, no one has been credited for Luke Skywalker.

So the team probably changed Hamill’s voice and synthesized the process again. No matter the way they did it, Luke’s voice absolutely matched his calm mentality post-Return of the Jedi.

Check out The Book of Boba Fett’s season 1 finale on Wednesday, February 9th, on Disney+.
