- Advertisement -

Pedro Pascal is currently the most wanted actor in the Star Wars universe. Disney announced last week Diego Luna would star in a new Rouge One prequel series on Disney+ and now seems to be in negotiations with Pedro Pascal for the lead role in Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian.

Not only is Pascal easy on the eyes, but he has a huge fan base as well. According to Variety, Disney is in negotiations with Pedro Pascal for a role in Star Wars: The Mandalorian.

Pascal isn’t some minor actor who’s trying to make his mark in Hollywood. In addition to The Mandalorian, he’s played Javier Pena in the hit series Narcos and Prince Oberyn in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Pedro Pascal is also currently filming in DC’s Wonder Woman 1984.

Production of The Mandalorian began several weeks ago, with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni heading it up as Executive Producers and directors. Other notable directors added to the series include Taika Waititi, Deborah Chow, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Rick Famuyiwa. Even the iconic George Lucas visited the set several times to discuss Star Wars with Favreau, and possibly Filoni too.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian will be the one of the first television series to air upon the premiere of Disney+, sometime in late 2019. If Pedro Pascal is to land the job, he’ll be the face of Star Wars for the new Disney streaming service — officially making him one hot commodity.

***UPDATE***

Anthony Breznican of EW says the deal is confirmed. Pedro Pascal is The Mandalorian.

Is Pedro Pascal the right man for The Mandalorian and what about the right woman? Should the Diego Luna series air after or at the same time as The Mandalorian? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. “May the Force be with you, always.”
