Pedro Pascal Teases Information About The First Episode Of 'The Mandalorian'


        Star Wars fans have been on the edge of their seats trying to find out anything that they possibly can about season 2 of The Mandalorian. The excitement is high for this season, and there are many expectations. It is one of TV’s highly anticipated shows. The Mandalorian season 2 comes out this Friday, October 30th, so thankfully, we do not have to wait much longer to find out what happens! 

            In an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday, October 27, Pedro Pascal, the Mandalorian himself, teased some awesome surprises for the upcoming second season. He admitted in the interview that the script for the first episode of season 2 completely blew him away when he read it. 

You know, I will say that reading the first episode of the second season, I was taken aback in a really good way at how impressive that the first episode read, and already with the evidence of the first season, knowing that they were able to achieve everything that they set out to, and seeing this incredibly ostentatious first episode with the story of an action sequence and the way that it read on the page and just that feeling that ‘my gosh, they’re going to achieve this visual experience!”

Pascal then talked about the filming process for this second season and how impressed he was with the creative process and how it all came together beautifully. 

 “Like, this isn’t just ‘let’s just describe it as best as we can and see what we end up achieving with it’ – it is undoubtedly going to be achieved, and I kind of couldn’t believe that, and I understood ‘oh, so this is how they keep it up with the second season; this is how they don’t disappoint.” 

            Pascal also talked about what it was like to work with the character that everyone loves: The Child, also known more affectionally by the fans as Baby Yoda. 

 “This baby is beautiful, and the details on the Child are incredible. We’re talking about this adorable peach fuzz hair on the tips of its ears. You’d be surprised, he’s an incredible scene partner. Industrial Light and Magic, the effects team that work the puppet in a scene with me, you wouldn’t believe what they’d be able to do. At one point… I’m not sure if it’ll be in the final cut, but I improvised a line at the start of a scene. Basically, ‘don’t get too close to the fire’, and Baby Yoda, like, turned its head and reacted to me, and like, moved away from that, and that wasn’t even in the writing. So there I am improvising with Baby Yoda!”

            There is little doubt that season 2 will have much more of Baby Yoda, and he will capture the hearts of the fans all over again. 

            In the interview, Pascal also admitted to getting some of the merchandise before they technically hit shelves. He likes to give it to friends and their children. He was also asked if we would get to see more of his face in this season. If you remember, we didn’t get to see Mando’s face until the final episode of season 1. But unfortunately, this question was not answered. Pascal just smiled and laughed and wouldn’t give us anything. 

            Pedro Pascal was clearly impressed with everything in this new season from the storyline to the filming process. With this information, there is little doubt that this new season of The Mandalorian is going to be amazing and will meet the fan’s expectations.
