In case you missed it, the first trailer for the third season of The Mandalorian dropped during Lucasfilm’s presentation at D23.
As you might expect, the trailer didn’t reveal too much, except everyone’s arguable new favorite Babu Frik. But that didn’t stop director Rick Famuyiwa and star Pedro Pascal from adding to the hype after the panel.
Speaking to Deadline, the two teased both epic action and cameos in the upcoming season.
Pascal said, “I mean, it’s epic. It’s definitely epic. And we’re gonna get a lot of things that were introduced into the storytelling early in season one, themes and ideas that, you know, you’ll remember once we get into full fruition of season three, and its epic.”
Aware of the many times he used the word “epic”, Pascal explained that he definitely had to walk on eggshells so he wouldn’t get in trouble.”
“I’m coding like, all of the spoilers, the people that you have [in the series],” he said, “The amount of times I say epic gives everything away.”
Obviously he’s alluding to appearances by both old and new characters. unfortunately we have to wait until next year to find out how “epic” the show will be for ourselves.
