Pedro Pascal made his debut as the now iconic Din Djarin AKA the Mandalorian in showrunner Jon Favreau Star Wars blow, The Mandalorian. The bounty hunter-centric television series has been released as a flagship show for Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+. Now with more shows to boot included Obi-Wan Kenobi and the most recent Andor, Star Wars TV is Lucasfilm’s most concentrated media effort.

The Mandalorian by Favreau and Lucasfilm creative lead, Dave Filoni (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance, The bad lot), remains the franchise’s most critically and commercially successful series, albeit by Tony Gilroy Andor is rapidly catching up. After Pascal’s Mandalorian bounty hunter and his protégé, Grogu AKA the Child (“Baby Yoda”), The Mandalorian explore the galaxy far, far away and introduce a host of new characters to the four decades old space opera.

From Carl Weathers as Greef Karga to breaking Bad alums Giancarlo Esposito as the Imperial villain, Moff Gideon, Ming-Na Wen as the mercenary Fennec Shand, and Gina Carano as the future Marshal of the New Republic, Cara Dune, the TV show greatly expanded the character portfolio for science fiction franchise. While many of these characters will return for the upcoming third season, Carano’s Cara Dune will be noticeably absent.

The controversial MMA fighter turned actress was ousted from Lucasfilm following a series of problematic social media posts. His latest release for Star Wars was The Mandalorian The season 2 finale which saw Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) make a dramatic return to the galaxy and the coveted Mandalore artifact, the dark sword, fall into the hands of Din Djarin much to the chagrin of Bo-Katan Kryze. Katee Sackhoff made her live-action debut as fellow Mandalorian and leader of the Nite Owls after becoming a fan favorite in other Star Wars supports included The Clone Wars. It should appear in the next Ahsoka TV show by Dave Filoni and starring Rosario Dawson as Anakin Skywalker’s beloved former Padawan, Ahsoka Tano.

While the run-up to The Mandalorian The third season seemed confusing, thanks to Pascal’s work as lead character Joel on HBO The Last of Us, Star Wars fans can now rest easy knowing that the series will return to the small screen on March 1, 2023. Based on the history, it seems The Mandalorian The third season will cross over with the second season of The bad lotwhich will debut on January 4, 2023.

The release date was confirmed at the CCXP media convention in Brazil – an event similar to the better known San Diego Comic-Con – and so like Star Wars news, Marvel Studios has also released information regarding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) e Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantummania (2023).

And with Faveau and Filoni’s Mando season 3 news falling in just three months, it’s only fitting that the show’s lead Mr. Pascal blew up the internet. The actor took the stage at CCXP and fans couldn’t stand his presence.

Pascal seemed to know how to trigger a crowd reaction, as can be seen in this clip posted on Twitter by @mishajackles:

“IT IS AN HONOR TO BE YOUR DAD” – PEDRO PASCAL

#CCXP #CCXP22

Another tweet from @Gabo_ker celebrated the arrival of the Star Wars star:

This is how they receive Pedro Pascal at the biggest Comic Con in the world today in Brazil #CCXP And they don’t even receive @iamdelafuente at home…

@uchihando exclaimed:

Just stop posting pedro pascal on ccxp you must have a sense of humanity!!

@bangtswns couldn’t believe what was happening:

NOOOOOO PEDRO PASCAL IS AT CCXP HERE IN SÃO PAULO I WANT TO BE THERE

Another @payal_choksi tweet talked about Pascal’s outfit choice for the Brazilian convention:

I just fell asleep for a few hours and God… look at it… so cozy… #PedroPascal

The actor trended in multiple territories following his appearance at CCXP.

While Star Wars: Andorin which Diego Luna plays the rebel spy Cassian Andor (the character introduced in Star Wars: Rogue One (2016)) is climbing the ranks of Star Wars‘ most acclaimed show, the audience was nowhere near that of The Mandalorian. And it’s very likely because it just wasn’t The Mandalorian the first Disney-directed project to offer a level of grit and darkness never before seen in live-action canon, at least under House of Mouse but also for the star power of its protagonist.

Favreau’s series will bring many more Mandalorians as Mandalore’s leadership remains contestedand it is set to follow the events of the spinoff show, Boba Fett’s bookwhere Din Djarin is reunited with Grogu. The Mandalorian is produced by John Bartnicki and executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson and Rick Famuyiwa.
