‘Star Wars’: Mark Hamill Reveals He Has Secretly Been in Every Movie of the Disney Era
With season 3 already in the planning stages, Disney+ series The Mandalorian looks destined to lead Star Wars into the future. After all, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker left the saga at a crossroads. But just because a new era of Star Wars lies ahead, that doesn’t mean fans have seen the last of Mark Hamill.
Fans just found out Mark Hamill made a cameo in ‘The Mandalorian’
Debuting on Disney+ the month before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, many fans considered The Mandalorian a welcome change of pace. Instead of larger-than-life space battles and epic drama, the new show tells a much more focused story. In fact, as he announced his retirement from playing Luke Skywalker, Hamill himself spoke out in support of The Mandalorian.
Now fans have discovered the actor isn’t just a fan of the show; he’s appeared on it. In “Chapter 5: The Gunslinger,” viewers catch a quick glimpse of droid bartender EV-9D9. Hamill — who boasts an iconic voice acting career — provides the character’s voice. In a similar fashion, Hamill voiced small alien roles in both The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.
Now the ‘Star Wars’ icon has admitted he has several secret roles
The Star Wars saga abounds with deep connections. But apparently, Hamill’s two recent cameos were just the beginning. Of course, the actor played Luke Skywalker in all three films in the sequel trilogy. But he’s also been involved in every single Star Wars film of the Disney era, the actor revealed himself on Twitter.
As mentioned, fans already know about Hamill’s “secret” voice roles in two-thirds of the sequel trilogy. But as he point out, this revelation means that he actually has a speaking role in The Force Awakens as well. Moreover, no one has yet identified who Hamill plays in either Rogue One or Solo. Alas, the fan-favorite actor remains absent from the prequels.
Could Mark Hamill still have a future in the saga?
Hamill has officially ruled out playing Luke Skywalker again on screen. Yet, his consistent participation in the saga — even through voice roles — bodes well for his continued involvement. Sure, Hamill might not want to go through hair and make-up again. But the Star Wars saga certainly has plenty of alien and droid characters he could play.
Even The Mandalorian directors Jon Favreau and Taika Waititi have lent their voices to the saga. Favreau played Rio Durant in Solo, while Waititi — who will direct an upcoming film — voiced IG-11 on The Mandalorian. If fans can expect such fun voice casting, then Hamill’s extensive experience in that arena makes him the perfect addition.
