Pedro Pascal has blown up in recent years playing a myriad of roles, but it’s his role as Din Djarin or The Mandalorian, which has solidified his status among the Star Wars fanbase. And of course, there is Ewan McGregor, who has been a fan-favorite since his portrayal of the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequels. There might be nothing better than seeing two actors who are both involved in the same universe sharing a tender moment about each other’s work. That was the case when McGregor asked Pascal about his keeping the name of Grogu quiet. You can see Pascal’s priceless reaction below:
Depending on how busy an actor can get, they often don’t have time to watch other works that they are not directly involved in. Pedro Pascal might have initially thought that before he was blindsided by Ewan asking him about details relating to The Mandalorian. The question posed was how Pascal kept the real name of “Baby Yoda” a secret for so long. Pascal’s shocked and smiling face is enough to state the obvious: he was impressed and honored to have McGregor know about The Mandalorian, especially that he knew the name Grogu.
The question posed to Pedro Pascal is a valid one, and Ewan is clearly interested in how Pascal kept his mouth shut for so long about a great many shocking details involved in The Mandalorian. From the name of Grogu to Luke Skywalker appearing, anyone would be hard-pressed to not want to share that information with those closest to them. Or possibly just saying it out loud in a public forum. We’re looking at you Tom Holland. Spoilers are everywhere and it’s good to know that there is one person who doesn’t want to ruin the shock value for the rest of us. Thanks, Mando.
Although fans of Star Wars would love to see Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mando cross paths, it is likely to not happen considering Kenobi was a force ghost by the time that Mando is thrust into protecting the child. The idea is that a force ghost can appear to anyone, and Mando is in possession of the Dark Saber. Not that owning that weapon makes him a Jedi, but maybe some force powers might follow soon. This is all speculation, but giving Mando some force lightning would be amazing. If Luke Skywalker can appear in The Mandalorian, why can’t Mando (Pedro Pascal) appear in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series? The Kenobi series is set to premiere on May 25th of this year.
It was probably a very surreal feeling for Pedro Pascal to be interviewed by Ewan McGregor who had established himself in the Star Wars world some nearly 20 years before Pascal got his own chance to be involved in arguably the most important sci-fi universe to ever exist. Maybe McGregor needed to research The Mandalorian for his upcoming series, and maybe our predictions of a cross-over aren’t too farfetched. Either way, we want more round-table discussions between two of the most popular portrayed Star Wars characters that have ever graced our screens.
