The Mandalorian Luke Skywalker Deepfake by Shamook

If you haven’t seen this yet you should. The motions are still a bit off but it’s miles better in my eyes.

EDIT: didn’t see idir_hh’s post before this 😉
EDIT2: still think Shamook’s is best

First of all, you have a great name. Second, while I don’t think we will be seeing Grogu in the Mandalorian again, I don’t think his story is over. I think there’s a good chance of him tying into any of the new series, especially Ahsoka. Her appearance in the Mandalorian was definitely setting up for something else, and I think her relationship with Grogu will develop.

Can’t wait to see where next season goes and I’m genuinely intrigued by the Book of Boba Fett.

My theory is that book of Fett will be the next season/story of The Mandalorian. This episode concluded the book of Grogu, and now we move onto the Book of Fett. Others were even commenting on how this felt like the end of the series. Plus, Disney said that season 3 of The Mandalorian would be on December 25 of 2021, and I couldn’t see them releasing two major Star wars series at the same time. ALSO (sorry just thought of this) it would be strange for Disney not to have mentioned this on Disney Investor Day if it were a new series.

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.

And I think they should know by now to stop burning money on this stuff that always fails and has to be fixed by amateur deep fake people online. Mark Hamill can still have the role, but when it’s so prohibitive (to the budget and the performance) they need to do it another way. Give him a beard, do practical makeup, do something else. It’s gonna age like milk. Evidently people haven’t complained enough.

Hallelujah. This is exactly how I feel. I feel like there are so many talented people at ILM, and they pour so much effort into creating and rigging these detailed 3d models like with Tarkin, and it always ventures into the uncanny valley. ILM should ask Weta Digital for help if they need to. It makes me sad knowing that there is so much potential at ILM and they never seem to learn from their mistakes reviving/de-aging actors. I know it’s not a limitation of our current technology. Other studios like Weta Digital have created mind-blowing de aging visual effects like with Will Smith in Gemini Man, and even self-taught deepfakers like Shamook are able to paste an actors face onto a double with superior quality. I hope Lucasfilm actually learns from the negative public reaction to these actor vfx.
