Sebastian Stan could be using The Force as the new Luke Skywalker for Disney Plus. Previously, a de-aged Mark Hamill returned as Luke Skywalker in the season finale of The Mandalorian.
Luke Skywalker’s appearance in The Mandalorian shocked the world.
Like the Disney Plus series, the cameo gave the polarized Star Wars franchise a jolt of excitement.
It hadn’t felt that since prior to The Force Awakens.
The Rise of Skywalker was seen as the ending of the Skywalker saga.
However, critics bashed the film. Many fans despised it.
Although the 2019 movie earned over $1 billion globally, it was generally considered a massive disappointment.
The weak treatment of Vader’s son in Disney’s first Star Wars trilogy is a hot-button issue of resentment from followers.
That might be an understatement.

Many feel it outright sucked.
After all, the character deserved better.
The decades between 1983’s Return of the Jedi and 2015’s The Force Awakens were chronicled in novels and comics; however, those adventures were never shown.
Going forward, there have been discussions to unveil them on Disney Plus.
The process recalls Kevin Feige’s balancing act of tweaks and faithfulness in the MCU.
Producers will cherry pick from non-canonical stories and add to them.
The result will be a streamlined version of Luke Skywalker’s missing years.
Sebastian Stan Could Show Us Luke Skywalker’s Missing Years
Sebastian Stan has been fan-cast as Luke Skywalker for years now.
His uncanny resemblance to a young Mark Hamill cannot be denied.
In December, I reported that Sebastian Stan was courted to play Luke Skywalker in the upcoming Lando show on Disney Plus.
No negotiations haven’t begun yet; however, there have been talks of Luke Skywalker being in multiple projects for the streamer.
Lucasfilm’s top choice is Sebastian Stan.
Although fans were ecstatic to see Mark Hamill again, the CGI did receive some criticism.
Well, there are still limits to this technology.
It’s easier to hire an actor who people can believe is Luke Skywalker from the ’80s.
Certainly, Sebastian Stan has the talent, looks, and popularity.
Nothing has been signed yet; nevertheless, Sebastian Stan is their man.
He’s one in a million.
