    The Mandalorian speaks again! Pedro Pascal recently sat down with Vanity Fair's Anthony Breznican to discuss his “Excellent Mando Adventure” and more.

    Breznican has been on a roll these past couple of weeks with big interview after big interview, and this one might be the most fun. Pascal’s charisma is something to behold and shines through in this interview. He has become an icon throughout the world since first appearing as the Mandalorian on the flagship show for Disney Plus.

    Pascal recalls his first interaction with the leader of the Mandoverse, Jon Favreau:

    Picturing Pedro Pascal walking with Favreau into a conference room where Filoni is just chilling in his famous cowboy hat waiting to discuss The Mandalorian just makes me smile. According to Pascal, there was concept art for the show and other various Star Wars imagery around the room, but one in particular caught his eye. He saw something of what he soon learned to be Grogu himself, and after a conversation with Favreau and Filoni, he realized how big this project was going to be:

    Something particularly striking about the interview was Pascal discussing how he first thought he was going to be playing legendary Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett. It wasn’t until they drove to Manhattan Beach studios and met with Kathleen Kennedy, he began to learn more about the project. It didn’t take long for Pascal to quickly give a resounding 'YES!' when asked to be the now fan favorite gunslinger.

    The interview dives deeper into the concept of the Mandalorian himself; a lone ranger whose face you never see. Pascal talks about the gray areas that exist early on when he takes his helmet off for IG-11 at the end of season 1. As an audience member I remember watching that scene and just being so excited at the future because I knew we might get this wonderful moment where he and Grogu can truly see each other. Pascal actually hits on this in the interview as well:

    Pedro Pascal continues to be a wonderful ambassador for Star Wars and The Mandalorian. The energy he brings to each interview and public appearance is part of what makes the character so iconic after just a handful of years. It’s incredible to think just a few years ago the concept of live-action Star Wars television was completely foreign to us, but now is a mainstay. And Pedro Pascal is an enormous part of that.

    The entire interview can be found on Vanity Fair. It’s definitely worth your time!
