Lucasfilm Hires Youtuber Who Deepfaked Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian



Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light and Magic has hired YouTuber Shamook after he improved the VFX used to de-age Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian by using Deepfake technology. Shamook released his Mandalorian Luke Skywalker deepfake video on December 21 after completing work on the clip in four days and the video has had nearly two million views.

A Lucasfilm representative said in a statement: “[Industrial Light and Magic is] always on the lookout for talented artists and have in fact hired the artist that goes by the online persona ‘Shamook. Over the past several years ILM has been investing in both machine learning and A.I. as a means to produce compelling visual effects work and it’s been terrific to see momentum building in this space as the technology advances.”
