We’ve seen the first use of deepfakes on a official Star Wars project just this December with Luke skywalker in The Mandalorian season 2, with the last couple of years deepfakes have substantially taken a storm all over the internet. I’ve recently been experimenting with deepfakes / artificial face programs for last few months and with where everything has been going it could be a huge game changer for fan-films and fan edits, I’ve seen people suggest deepfakes accross all sorts of edits now and we’ve seen a few fan projects make use of it.

Deepfakes aren’t the best even by ILMs standards, Luke looked good but a little rough around the edges. Testing with deepfakes I think they could make really great holograms providing good dialogue provided by voice actors or recycled from games & TV shows, deleted scenes etc. I recently tried deepfaking Palpatine using Dialogue from Rebels / ROTJ footage.
