Mark Hamill asks fans to make his Mandalorian return as Luke Skywalker a BAFTA winner

May 2nd, 2021 by Marc Comments

Luke, sorry, look, there’s not a power in heaven or earth that can convince that the greatest moment on TV – if not pop culture in general – of the last few years, was Luke Skywalker appearing in The Mandalorian.

I almost cried and I have friends who aren’t afraid to admit they did cry… and we’re all grown-ass men!

It was a powerful, moving moment and perfectly encapsulated why The Last Jedi totally ruined the legacy of Luke Skywalker… but I’m not getting into that again.

Now, the moment has been listed for the BAFTA ‘must see moments of 2020’ category – the only category YOU vote for – and Mark Hamill has taken to Twitter to let us all know that it can be voted for and we absolutely are voting… this was an iconic moment that needs to be acknowledged.

Here’s Hamill’s plea to fans… to you.


And, just in case you need refreshed on how amazing a moment it was, you can re-watch it here:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
