    Well, the actors recognize that a Jedi arrives. In their dialogue. It’s just that Luke is never mentioned.

    The script probably said "Its Oppo Rancisis in all his glory".

    I think it was "a friend" in the script.

    Weren't certain bloggers and rumour merchants tipped off it was Mace?

    No, I saw it. Says “Yarael Poof enters the room.”

    Disney gave us Luke Skywalker in a sequel to ROTJ the way in which we always wanted him , the real Luke in an epic way showing all his light saber skills and powers....those 2 minutes were better than the Luke we got in the entire ST - it was beautiful to watch....

    Katee sackhoff was interviewed by Kristian harloff on his youtube channel and she says that when she filmed the scene with Luke Skywalker it was just an actor with the mo-cap marks on his face. they didn't know who it was gonna be. it was a red herring.

    So that implies they filmed the scene with the stand-in and then filmed Mark Hamill separately.

    Surely somebody there had to have an idea that it was Luke though, I don't buy that somebody could be standing there with a green lightsaber into those robes and they didn't have an idea.

    Unless of course the stand end was dressed totally different from Luke...

    Not sure if they filmed Mark Hamill at all really. i mean that would be 3 phases.

    1. Stand in actor
    2. Film Hamill
    3. CGI face

    I ain't sure you would need to film an older Hamill to pull off number 3.

    MH said he was on set and gave the stand in a few words of advice, didn't he?

    That would indicate he was there when they shot Luke taking out the Dark Troopers but wasn't when they shot the group scene on the bridge. It's not unusual, they're two or more completely different sets, it's just a shame they couldn't use MH the whole time and CGI him into his younger self but then budget would've sky rocketed.

    You can bet your house had she still been with us, Carrie Fisher would've wanted in too.

    Those black robes and black glove are a huge giveaway that its Luke.

    But its possible Katee Sackhoff doesn't know her SW that much.

    I disagree. I thought their version was more expressive and lifelike. Had they had the infinite resources that Disney had (i.e. a real body double) and a little more time, it would have looked even better.

    His neck is so long he looks like Yarael Poof. I don’t want to rag on some random person’s work but they claim in the title of their video that they made a better CGI Luke and... they very clearly didn’t.

    agreed. The expressions were overdone and the face is just as jarring. I don't think you can fix the uncanny valley, no matter how far the technology goes. Deepfakes can only work if the audience is not familiar with somebody. Star Wars fans are familiar with Mark Hammil on an intimate level.
