It's been three years since Disney+ was launched and it goes without saying that what was initially thought to be a major gamble for the House of Mouse paid off tremendously. The streaming service allowed mega-franchises like Marvel and Star Wars to expand their respective universes and judging by the success of the content they've put out so far, going the streaming route was the best decision.

Of course, most of you know that Star Wars was the first to capitalize on Disney+'s initial hype, bringing us this little show called The Mandalorian which quickly became a favorite amongst fans. Well, it turns out that one Marvel actor believes the hit Pedro Pascal series falls under the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Lupita Nyong'o pulled a major blunder during a Marvel trivia game while promoting Black Panther: Wakanda Forever where she confidently told the interviewer that The Mandalorian was the first Marvel show to drop on Disney+. Co-star Danai Gurira unsurprisingly got the answer correct — WandaVision but the Nakia actress seemed to have the wrong information.

While many fans had a good laugh with her mistakenly thinking Mando and Grogu belong in the MCU, the official Star Wars Twitter page doesn't seem to mind the mishap. Retweeting the now-viral interview, the account wrote: "We'll take it."

Does this mean a Star Wars and Marvel crossover is possible? Probably. The idea doesn't sound too farfetched, especially considering both franchises live under one roof. It's also worth mentioning that Marvel Comics has been publishing stories from a galaxy far, far away so I guess it's all canon after all.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now screening in cinemas worldwide.
