Did you miss the Easter egg in The Mandalorian?
The Mandalorian was filled with plenty of Easter eggs. Many fans caught them quickly, but there were a few secrets that weren’t revealed until Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian and Jon Favreau explained some behind the scenes tidbits.
One of the more interesting ones to pop up was reported by Slashfilm. In Chapter 5, the Mandalorian went to Tatooine to get his ship fixed after coming out on the right side of a dogfight. It was a fun episode, especially for many longtime fans as we got to visit the planet that was home to one of the greatest heroes of the Star Wars universe.

It seems Luke Skywalker never left. When Din Djarin got to the Mos Eisley Cantina, there was a droid working behind the bar. While it was a fun surprise to Star Wars fans because 40 years ago droids weren’t welcome in that bar, it was a cool moment to see.
But there was more to it than we realized. The droid was EV-9D9, Jabba the Hutt’s former droid.
And that voice?
Maybe it sounded familiar. Maybe not because he is a master of voices.
Mark Hamill voiced the droid.
Yep, Luke Skywalker made it back to Tatooine.
Given how connected Hamill is with the Star Wars universe and his prolific work with in voice acting, it makes sense that he was able to sneak in and voice another character. It’s fun little Easter egg that will enrich The Mandalorian rewatch because you know it’s going to happen before the second season premieres.
