Recently, the widely acclaimed Disney+ Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian, received high honors from Neilsen. Research reveals that The Mandalorian beat The Office as the most watched streaming series in the US, a feat not so easily obtained.
The success of The Mandalorian Season 2 came from the maturity of the writing, acting and directing. And as most cinema buffs know, it’s hard to beat the original. But Lucasfilm did it, and in most epic fashion.
The Mandalorian Season 2 finale director Peyton Reed paid tribute to Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill in honor of working with him.
“Dear Mark Hamill,
When I was a kid, this photo hung on my bedroom wall. STAR WARS, and Luke Skywalker in particular, meant a great deal to me.
Some things never change.
It was an honor and a dream come true to work with you on The Mandalorian. Thank you.”
Peyton Reed was honored for joining forces with the great Luke Skywalker. Hopefully, one day we’ll see Reed in action again for future Star Wars projects.
