After Ahsoka Tano’s appearance in the last Mandalorian episode, fans imagine ways legendary Star Wars character Luke Skywalker could do the same.
WARNING: Spoilers for The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 5
After a storyline that could facilitate the appearance of Star Wars legend Luke Skywalker came to light on the latest episode of The Mandalorian, fan art has now emerged, imagining Avengers: Endgame star Sebastian Stan as the Jedi Knight. While the Disney+ show mainly concerns brand new characters, the recent appearance of Star Wars: The Clone Wars mainstay Ahsoka Tano has opened up possibilities for classic figures to feature in future episodes.
Titled “The Jedi,” The Mandalorian season 2 episode 5 included not only a continuation of the titular bounty hunter’s story but a popular character from the Star Wars universe. Previously only seen in animation form on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, Ahsoka Tano, portrayed here by Rosario Dawson, not only served as a strong connection to past Star Wars lore but a huge hint as to what’s to come for both The Mandalorian and future Disney+ shows. After telling the bounty hunter where Grogu (AKA Baby Yoda) can find a connection with other Force users, fans immediately speculated that this meant Luke Skywalker could be the one to answer Grogu’s call, being one of the only major Force users alive at this point in the Star Wars timeline. Just like Dawson’s likeness to Tano being accurate, Marvel Studios star Stan was noted as having similar features to Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill. Now, fan art featuring how Stan could appear on the show has emerged.

Artist Bosslogic recently uploaded a post that sees Stan styled as Luke in the character’s costume from 1983’s Return Of The Jedi. With The Mandalorian being set 5 years post that film in the continuity, this attire is the most likely fit if this cameo were to happen. Bosslogic’s original Instagram post can be seen below:
While far from anything remotely official, Bosslogic’s art definitely generates excitement and the thought of endless possibilities. Characters from mainstream Star Wars entities had been seldom seen in The Mandalorian, a decision that garnered a lot of praise for its originality, up until the latest episode. While Luke’s inclusion would fly in the face of that, the latest season of the show has shown that this can be done in an integral way to Mando’s story, as opposed to including the characters for simple fan service. If Luke were to be the one to connect with Grogu, not only would he effectively progress the story and themes of the show, but make a lot of sense in terms of the continuity. With Bosslogic showing us just how accurate Stan could look as a young Luke Skywalker, just like Dawson with Ahsoka, it seems like the artist could really be on to something.
With just three episodes left in this season of The Mandalorian, prediction as to where the show’s story will go is a hot topic right now. Many potential storylines have been set up, and with the show taking it’s time to develop it’s own characters very well, it makes sense to bring in Stan, a fellow Disney+ star and dead ringer for a mid 80’s Hamill, to take the show to even more incredibly exciting places.
