With The Mandalorian currently in development for Disney’s upcoming new streaming service, now comes word on who may be headlining this hotly anticipated new show.
Courtesy of Variety, it’s reported that Pedro Pascal is currently in talks to star in the titular role. Pascal, of course, is best known to genre fans for the likes of Game of Thrones, Narcos and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and he’ll be seen next year in Wonder Woman 1984.
In terms of what we know so far about The Mandalorian, the series will take place a few years after Return of the Jedi and the action will largely be set in the outer territories of the galaxy. Genre fave Jon Favreau has penned the small-screen effort, with The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels’ Dave Filoni to direct the pilot episode. Other heavy hitters confirmed to direct further episodes are Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Deborah Chow.
Expect more on The Mandalorian as it continues to develop.
