Pedro Pascal the star of The Mandalorian, has teased the second season ahead of the premiere this Friday.
There is no doubt that the second season of The Mandalorian is one of TV’s most anticipated shows, with fans hoping the Disney+ series can recapture what they loved so much from season one.
Ahead of the premiere this Friday, Pedro Pascal, who stars as the title character, has teased what fans can expect. Speaking to Good Morning America (via Star Wars News Net), the actor said:
“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!’ 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 explained what it’s like working with the show’s true star, Baby Yoda, aka The Child: “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!”
Season two promises to be a lot of fun and at the very least we will get more Baby Yoda goodness to enjoy. Not long to wait now!
