He voices the young Luke while he is still being trained by Yoda on Dagobah during the time period of The Empire Strikes Back. The title of the second short film is The Path Ahead.

"Struggling with his Jedi training, Luke is grateful for master Yoda's offer to join him on a sojourn through the trees and swamps of Dagobah, until he learns that Yoda will be riding in his backpack! Minding Yoda, Luke learns to trust what he feels instead of what he thinks he sees," the official synopsis of the short film read.

Other actors from the Star Wars universe who have appeared in the animated series are Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong'o, and Felicity Jones.
