It's not a great surprise to learn that George Lucas based his order of intergalactic warrior monks on the Knights Templar. So it's rather fitting that The Last Jedi, himself, Mark Hamill is joining Knightfall season 2, playing a Templar Knight - in news that will get fanboys' heads spinning.
Hamill joins the cast as “Talus,” a battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran of the Crusades, who survived captivity for ten years in the Holy Land and is tasked with training the new initiates to the Order. The voice over in this tease reveals Talus’ moral conflict with Landry (Cullen) as a Templar. The sword is the symbol that unites and divides the brotherhood this season, and its flames foreshadow what is to come for the Templars on Friday the 13th. Cullen plays the courageous and headstrong Templar Knight, Landry, who last season we left grief-stricken but hopeful.
