Giancarlo Esposito on Why The Mandalorian's Moff Gideon is Different From Breaking Bad's Gus Fring

There is little doubt that Moff Gideon is one of the most memorable Star Wars villains to date. After all, the baddie has proven that he'll do just about anything to get his hands on Baby Yoda in the first season of The Mandalorian. But how does Gideon compare to Giancarlo Esposito's other memorable bad guy? The Breaking Bad star has just commented on how different Gideon is to the terrifying Gustavo Fring.

Esposito recently spoke to Variety about his return in The Mandalorian Season 2 and he revealed that why Gideon is so different from Gus.

"Moff is very different from Gus Fring, he wields his own Darksaber," Esposito said. He also added that Gideon doesn't mind getting his hands dirty.

"He does his own dirty work and he's certainly willing to. He's much more volatile, he's much more of the warrior, and that could tell us some things about him next season," Esposito stated.

But what are we going to learn about Gideon in Season 2? Esposito shared some things that fans have already asked that could be answered later this year.

"Where is he really from? I've been asked all these questions. Is he a former Mando? Is he this, is he that? So all of these interesting things will want to come out," he said. He also expressed how much he enjoyed working on The Mandalorian.

"I love this show and it is the ultimate space Western, you've never seen anything like it," Esposito concluded.

We're certainly loving Gideon's story arc so far and we're hoping to learn more about the character soon. Luckily, we already know that Esposito will be back in the second season.

The Mandalorian Season 2 is set to premiere on Disney+ later this year.
