The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6 brings back some familiar faces, including Luke Skywalker, who plays the legendary Star Wars character here. The sixth episode of the Disney+ series, titled “Chapter 6: A Stranger From the Desert,” still mostly keeps Boba Fett on the sidelines while setting up various storylines that will play out in the show’s finale and upcoming releases on the Star Wars show. In Episode 5 of The Book of Boba Fett, Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin is still at the forefront, and the whereabouts of Luke and Grog are finally revealed.
In The Mandalorian season 2 finale, Luke saves Din’s team from an attacking horde of dark troopers, then vows to train Grogu as his new apprentice. Sadly, that means separating Ding from the “kids” who form a strong bond over their adventures together.
While the fate of Luke and Grog’s training is expected to be revealed in The Mandalorian season 3, the two return in The Book of Boba Fett Episode 6 as Din vows to visit his “little friend.” With his newly built Naboo starfighter, Ding arrives at the location of Luke’s future Jedi Academy, but he never gets a chance to be reunited with Grog.
While Luke is busy teaching Grogu the ways of the Force, Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) convinces Ding that strengthening the attachment might make Grogu’s training more difficult. Although Ding left without meeting Grog directly, the Mandalorian left behind his gift: Besca armor made for outcasts.

Unlike Luke’s brief but memorable appearance in “The Mandalorian,” the Jedi Master gained more influence in The Book of Boba Fett. However, as the showtimes increased, so did the challenges of filming. In The Mandalorian season 2 finale, Mark Hamill reprises his iconic Star Wars role, but only in a limited way. In addition to the special effects used to age Hamill to play his 28-year-old self, Max Lloyd-Jones also serves as Luke’s double.
As for the characters’ voices, series creator Jon Favreau and his team used synths to match Hamill’s voice 40 years ago. Interestingly, Hamill is back again to play Luke in The Book of Boba Fett, but requires more VFX work.
The Book of Boba Fett Luke Skywalker Grog
Mark Hamill returns to play Luke Skywalker, according to the credits at the end of Episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett. Granted, a few others brought young Luke back to life on the Star Wars show. This time, Scott Lang was listed as Luke’s stunt double, even though he was called “Jedi.”
In addition, Graham Hamilton works as a performance artist. It’s not surprising that Luke’s role in The Book of Boba Fett involves multiple characters, considering the character was more active in training Grog. Luke not only demonstrated his physical control of the Force, but also his lightsaber expertise. While Lloyd Jones wasn’t used as a stand-in this time around, he did appear in the last episode as Lieutenant Reed.
Did Mark Hamill voice Luke Skywalker in Boba Fett’s book?
Luke’s aging appearance received some criticism after his appearance in The Mandalorian. There was even a push for a Star Wars remake of Luke with a young actor like Sebastian Stan. Granted, the VFX in The Book of Boba Fett looks more in line with fan expectations. However, even with the smoother CGI deaging, there is still complexity in Luke’s voice. It’s unclear if Hamill, 70, will voice Luke in The Book of Boba Fett, but it seems likely.
Unlike Corey Burton, who is listed on the credits as the voice actor for Cad Bane, no one else has voiced Luke Skywalker. So the VFX team either changed Hamill’s own voice over work, given the amount of dialogue in the episode, or they used the compositing process again. Either way, the end result is meant to match Luke’s calm post-Return of the Jedi state of mind.
