The Mandalorian movie? Pedro Pascal discusses the possibilities of the big screen

Although it will still be a while before Star Wars returns to the big screen after the Skywalker Saga comes to an end with Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, the television universe carries the burden of the franchise at the moment. These efforts began with The Mandalorian in 2019, starring Pedro Pascal in the lead role as Din Djarin took the world by storm in his debut.

Although season 3 of The Mandalorian is still a long way off, the intergalactic warrior has arguably been the biggest name in the Star Wars TV expansion in recent years. With two seasons of his own show and a role in the final three chapters of Boba Fett’s Book Season 1, the hero has carved his own place in the Star Wars universe outside of the 11 cinema films of the last 45 years.


However, that status has fans wondering if Pascal would ever be in line for a transition to a future Star Wars movie, especially as one of the biggest names in Lucasfilm’s small-screen projects. Turns out Pascal himself thought about it, and it’s definitely something he’d like to see happen someday.

The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal spoke with Variety at Star Wars Celebration about the possibility of moving the show’s story into a theatrical movie setting.

When asked when his show would potentially hit the big screen, Pascal admitted it could be “inevitable,” but he has no idea when it might happen. However, he also shared how excited he would be to see a mandalorian film:


“That’s a good question. Don’t you think it’s inevitable? Me personally…I have no idea, but it would be a dream come true. Not that other dreams can come true! Can -maybe I’ve had enough.”

Pascal also shared how great it’s been to return to the big screen as a whole with the entertainment industry, even with the work he’s doing to help build the expanded universe in the Disney+ sphere. Specifically, he celebrated audiences coming back and enjoying these events as a group, making it clear that he would like to see the same happen for The Mandalorian:

“Yeah, and just seeing the trailer on a big screen like that, the way it envelops you and brings you back. At the same time, it’s beyond special to be able to have the intimate experience that we have with these chapters from Mandalorian and all, its expanded universe, everything that’s to come, everything that’s just started up to Obi-Wan Kenobi and we’re just finding out. It must be amazing for you to just see different ways of, like… seeing the entertainment industry evolve in so many new and different ways I love going to the movies, I’ve been back there, going back and being able to be with an audience again is one of the greatest things If this happens with The Mandalorian, all I can say is… please.

Will The Mandalorian make it to the big screen?

Disney has already shown it can weave its work on Disney+ with its material in the movies, as proven with Marvel Studios Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While that hasn’t happened with Star Wars yet, mostly due to a lack of movies released in the last three years, Pascal seems ready to give it a try and see what happens.

The big question is whether Pascal would star in a Mandalorian-centric film or appear as a supporting character, especially given his solo series schedule set directly after the original trilogy. Star Wars clearly isn’t averse to making prequel-style movies like A thug and Soloso the chance is there for Pascal to take on this challenge, but there’s no sign of where it might come from.


Regardless of those details, the foundation is there for Din Djarin and possibly some supporting cast members to make the jump to the big screen if Lucasfilm chooses to go that route. The third season of his own solo series will help move his journey forward in a revolutionary way when it arrives, and after that, the way seems to be wide open for the star of the OG Disney+ franchise.

For now, season 3 of The Mandalorian is set to debut on Disney+ in February 2023.
