There has been a story floating around that Pedro Pascal has either quit The Mandalorian or will only be doing ADR in the future seasons. A while back Grace Randolph claimed that there was a behind the scenes dispute which led to Pedro Pascal walking off set, putting the future of The Mandalorian in jeopardy. Grace has used the quote from Jon Favreau in the EW article saying that the second half of the season will focus on a bigger story to defend her story. Some other outlets have even claimed that Pedro has quit the show. While it did seem crazy to think Pedro Pascal would leave the show, it was just crazy enough to be true.
According to our source, Pedro Pascal will be wearing the Mandalorian suit for the future seasons. From what we learned is that there was a dispute over “creative differences” (a term overused in Hollywood) while filming Season 2 but it was resolved quickly. Filming anything Star Wars brings a ton of pressure, so the success from the first season has added additional pressure to deliver amazing content. Ultimately you cannot expect to be filming a show like this and not have any issues. So, Grace was right that there were some behind the scenes issues. Where we differ is her use of the Entertainment Weekly article. The concept of shifting the focus to more characters in the second half of the season was always a part of the plan. A while back we covered that the goal was to create a wider Star Wars Universe through the Disney+ shows.
Now there other YouTube personalities, which we will not name, that have claimed that the Pedro Pascal story has gotten even crazier. The stories about Pedro being unprofessional and difficult to work with on set are false. Everyone we have talked to that worked on the show has said that Pedro was very professional and great to work with throughout filming The Mandalorian.
I don’t know about you all but I cannot wait for the next 30 days to go by as fast as possible. We all need something to talk about besides behind the scenes filming issues. What are you excited about the most from the second season of The Mandalorian? Let us know in the comment section below. The first season of The Mandalorian is currently airing on Disney+ with the second season premiering October 30th.
