Pedro Pascal is all for the Mandalorian appearing in series outside of his show.
The Mandalorian may still be the new kid on the block when it comes to live-action Star Wars TV series. But within the next year or two, that won’t be the case anymore. Star Wars is unloading so much new content onto Disney+ soon, and we can expect to see a lot of that content begin to crossover at some point as well.
For example, two new series will specifically be interconnected to the events of The Mandalorian. That includes the long-rumored and finally confirmed Ahsoka series as well as the newly announced Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic series. So, since these are all interconnected stories, does that mean our very own Din Djarin gets to be in these series as well? According to Pedro Pascal, that’s what he’s hoping for.
While promoting the latest film he’s in, Wonder Woman 1984 (directed by Star Wars newcomer Patty Jenkins), Pascal spoke to ComicBook.com about what he thinks lies in store for Mando’s future in the Star Wars universe. Here’s what he had to say when asked about the Mandalorian appearing outside of his own show:
"Man, fingers crossed. How could you not? This is like, this is something that’s so much bigger than all of us, and we’re all a passenger to it in a great way. And so, I find out, as it is decided and shared."
With characters like Ahsoka Tano appearing in his show and even some of those sassy New Republic pilots, we hope that means Mando can call it even by appearing in their shows. Of course, he doesn’t have to take the spotlight away from the real stars of these new shows, but it doesn’t hurt to have them team up once again.
We could even be looking at another Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame-type situation where everyone comes together for a major climatic event. While Marvel seemed to have it under control in the MCU, other projects like DC TV’s Crisis On Infinite Earths holds that something like that can’t always be pulled off that great. But still, it’d be worth seeing how Star Wars tries to tackle a crossover event project, especially with the likes of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni at the helm.
No matter what happens, we know that we can still look forward to seeing Pedro Pascal as the Mandalorian in his own series. And with the series finale happening this Friday, we also know that the stakes are going to be higher than ever when it comes to Mando’s quest to protect Baby Yoda.
