The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal has shared his hopes for crossovers within the Star Wars universe.
The actor, who plays the titular character in the Disney+ spin-off show, said the Mandalorian “has to be” a part of further projects within the galaxy.
When asked by ComicBook whether there would be a chance for the character to appear in other Star Wars stories, he replied: “Man, fingers crossed. How could you not?”
Pascal added: “This is like, this is something that’s so much bigger than all of us, and we’re all a passenger to it in a great way. And so, I find out, as it is decided and shared.”
Last week, Disney announced at their Investor Day that two Mandalorian spin-off shows are in the works.
The first is Star Wars: Ahsoka, set to focus on Rosario Dawson’s Jedi warrior Ahsoka Tano, while the other will be titled Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic. Plot details have not yet been revealed.
According to Disney, the show will “intersect with future stories and culminate into a climactic story event.”
Praising Pascal’s performance specifically, the feature added: “Pascal has done such a fantastic job as Mando over the last two seasons – doing so much with so little – so it’s also nice for him to get a few seconds of screen time and remind us all who the real star of the show is, especially now that it’s getting so crowded with side-characters.”
