The Mandalorian has proven to be one of Disney Plus’ top programs. Considered by many as a more faithful continuation of the Star Wars series compared to the Disney trilogy of films from 2015 – 2019. The show has grown a strong and dedicated audience and has gone on to sell plenty of merchandise. With The Mandalorian Season 3 gearing up for filming, its lead star, Pedro Pascal, who plays the titular character, is not on set.
Pedro Pascal let people know via his social media accounts that he is currently working on a different project.
Pedro Pascal is currently signed on to play Joel in the HBO Max adaptation of the PlayStation Franchise The Last of Us. A series that is about Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) making their way across North America, battling the undead and treacherous humans on a quest to find a cure. The series became instantly popular in 2013 when it released on PS3, but took a recent fall with its controversial 2020 sequel.
With Pascal currently working on another show for a competing network, who will play the Mandalorian? According to actor Giancarlo Esposito, Pascal is seemingly “not needed” for the show to begin filming, due to the character mostly wearing a helmet.
It is believed that since Pascal isn’t currently available they will simply use his stunt double, Brendan Wayne (Grandson of John Wayne), for a number of scenes where his character has the helmet on and will simply dub over the footage when Pascal returns.
Hopefully the actor won’t be gone for long as many fans wait anxiously to see the return of the hit show. Hopefully The Book of Boba Fett will hold fans over until then when it releases on Disney+ this December.
