The Star Wars live-action universe has officially made its debut on the small screen with the new Disney+ series, The Mandalorian. Though only one episode has been released thus far, fans are eager to see how the franchise will explore the galaxies through the lens of the nameless bounty hunter.
Or is he nameless? ComicBook.com reports that an interview with Pedro Pascal, who stars as the Mandalorian in the series, was recently released in which he describes the show and his character. In the video below, he seemingly spoils the character’s name (around the 2:30 mark), calling him “Den Jarin.” Though the spelling can’t be completely confirmed, the Game of Thrones actor went on to describe the outlaw as “iconically cool, flawed, mysterious, loner gunslinger that harkens to the best of the samurai movies and the westerns.”
Pascal also added about what he personally is trying to bring to the enigmatic role:
“I love the opportunity to make him as human and accessible as possible, which is strange to say because it's hard to get to him because he's covered in armor from head to toe. But the idea is that he's relatable, we're all kind of covered in our own armor and terrified of taking that armor off, and that's the thing that really crosses him over into a character that we're all really going to want to follow.”
Though Disney+ had some initial hiccups on debut day, everything appears to be back on track. Be sure to check out the first episode of The Mandalorian, now available on the streaming service.
