It appears legendary Star Wars franchise star, Mark Hamill, had an uncredited voice-over role for the hit Disney+ TV series, The Mandalorian, that was not revealed until recently. During the latest episode of the behind-the-scenes show, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, it was revealed that Hamill had a vocal cameo for a minor droid character who appeared in Episode 5 and first appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy.

In the fifth episode, the eponymous Mandalorian visits the famous Mos Eisley cantina, first seen in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The droid bartender at the cantina for the scene is actually voiced by Mark Hamill, best known for his work as Luke Skywalker. According to showrunner and creator Jon Favreau, the droid at the cantina was EV-9D9, the same droid seen working at Jabba the Hutt’s palace in Return of the Jedi.

This is not the first time Hamill has done voice-over work for Star Wars. He previously voiced Darth Bane on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Also, in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, he voiced the character of Boolio seen early on in the film.

Disney Gallery and The Mandalorian are currently available on Disney+. Season 2 of The Mandalorian is slated to debut later this fall.
