Star Wars: The Mandalorian Casts Pedro Pascal in Lead Role

The Mandalorian just got more exciting, as Pedro Pascal has been offered the lead role for the Star Wars spin-off. Fans were already excited for the series since it involves Jon Favreau of Iron Man fame and will be a part of the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Now that Pascal might be cast as the lead, fans can start having realistic expectations for the show, which could mean a quality serial.

Reported by Variety, Pascal has supposedly been given the offer and negotiations are underway. If things go smoothly, it looks like the Disney+ live-action show has ensured a quality star for its show. Hopefully, things go well and we see Pascal as the lead, though no details have been given about his character.

Pascal is a pretty talented actor, getting big roles in acclaimed shows like Narcos and movies like Kingsman: The Golden Circle. He is also expected to play a big role in Wonder Woman 1984, though his role has yet to be revealed. Why do mysteries keep following this guy?


Set after the fall of the Empire, The Mandalorian will follow the rise of the First Order. The show will tell the story of a lone gunslinger on the galaxy's fringes as they live a rogue life away from the New Republic.

No release date for The Mandalorian has been announced.
