Star Wars: Pedro Pascal To Lead The Mandalorian

Star Wars: Pedro Pascal To Lead The Mandalorian

It looks like Star Wars is ready to leap into its small-screen future.

While information on this specific role is sparse, fans do know a bit about the show itself.

The Mandalorian was announced last week as part of Disney's opening slate of shows on the service which is being built to compete with giants like Netflix and Hulu.

Set in the 20-some year gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, The Mandalorian is spearheaded by writer/director Jon Favreau.

Khashoggi murder recording may implicate Saudi prince
The foreign office said Hunt would raise the case of Matthew Hedges, a PhD student who denies charges of spying in the UAE. Turkey says a 15-member Saudi "hit squad" strangled and dismembered Khashoggi at the consulate.

Disney+ has also announced plans for a spin-off Avengers TV series with Loki as the main character, and a spin-off series based on the Monsters Inc universe. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The company did confirm previously that Dave Filoni will direct the series' premiere.

In addition to his other duties, Filoni has also been confirmed to direct the first episode with additional episodes being helmed by Deborah Chow (Marvel's Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).

For those of you unfamiliar with Pascal, the actor is by no means a stranger to the big screen.

According to Variety, the Game Of Thrones and Narcos actor had been one of those under consideration and is now negotiating to take the lead. He has since been building a strong film resume with performances in "Kingsman: The Golden Circle", "The Equalizer 2", and the upcoming "If Beale Street Could Talk".
