Is The Mandalorian Preparing to Replace Pedro Pascal?
Pedro Pascal is very good at keeping a secret.
Before he went on for the first time on Saturday Night Live, the actor went on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He talked about The Last of Us and, of course, the third season of The Mandalorian. New episodes of the Disney+ show haven't come out in almost three years, and Star Wars fans are so excited about it that you can feel the excitement.
Jimmy asked Pedro during the segment if he knew anything about what was coming up. Still, the talk show host didn't give away too many spoilers, and Pedro joked that he'd told him everything. Even though he was making jokes, he said there will be more Mandalorians.
“Quite a few. Huge, epic fight. Plural, maybe?” On the show, Pedro said.
Pedro seemed much less willing to talk about Baby Yoda's upcoming adventures when he was asked about them.
In the last episode of season 2, “The Mandalorian,” Grogu was just about to make a strong connection to the Force. The Disney+ spinoff The Book of Boba Fett added to the mix by continuing his story. In the end, The Child left Yoda's lightsaber behind and got back together with Mando.
Pedro told the crowd that Baby Yoda would be in the next season “still being taught and learning. Protected. Protecting.” After giving short replies, the actor finally said, “I think I'll be replaced if I say anything else. Like, not just as a Mandalorian, but also as a person.”
He kept making jokes about Disney, saying, “Their technology is so advanced that they'll just find another Pedro Pascal to replace me.”
The interview made Mandalorian fans laugh so hard that they cried, and the show's TikTok video made them very excited. “Whenever he talks about a role he can't give away, he goes straight to the ‘they'll kill me' story,” someone wrote in the comments. “I love how he sounds! Can't wait for season 3 of Mando! “Added another. Someone else said, “It's so cute when he talks about Grogu.”
Even though it seems like the former Narcos star is being told by Disney to keep quiet, fans won't have to wait long to find out what's going on. The first episode of the third season of The Mandalorian aired on Disney+ on March 1.
Pedro Pascal, who plays bounty hunter Din Djarin on the show, said in a recent interview that the “lore” of the Mandalorian, which takes place in the Star Wars universe, will grow in a pretty “epic” way. He also talked about Din's relationship with Grogu, a fan favourite who was called “Baby Yoda” until Season 2 because he seemed like a smaller and friendlier version of the famous character.
Pascal told Digital Spy that the relationship between Din and Grogu is “beautiful.” He said, “Din is Grogu's protector, and Grogu is Din's protector. And how that dynamic can be turned around, as well as how their relationship has so many layers. So, I would just say that what is rich about their relationship right away or at first becomes more clear in season three. What scares us about this relationship keeps getting bigger, which is fun.
In the promos, we can see that the bounty hunter and his friend are going on a more dangerous journey. Grogu seems to have gained new abilities. The New Republic, on the other hand, tries to lead the galaxy away from its troubled past. As the Mandalorian and Grogu go on dangerous quests together, old friends will come back and the Mandalorian will make new enemies.
The Mandalorian came out in 2019, and it was about a lone bounty hunter's adventures after the Rebel Forces beat the Empire. Several characters from the first Star Wars movies made cameos in the series, which was a nice touch. The series also led to spin-offs, such as The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka Tano.
