Also, I hate seeing people go on about the dodgy CGI on Luke Skywalker. You can always tell when a human being isn’t real or isn’t quite right, so the effects are noticeable, but it doesn’t invalidate how emotionally impactful that moment was. I don’t think we should let minor issues outweigh just how great this new content really is. I’m not saying The Mandalorian shouldn’t be criticised, but whenever I come to this thread it’s all so bloody negative, and ANY issue is brought to the very forefront of a review.
I’m certain ILM worked incredibly hard to get this effect, like they did with Tarkin, and that’s enough for me. Although I still think Sebastian Stan would have worked well, it’s a great thing that old Mark Hamill can still have a chance at playing young Luke Skywalker.
