Pedro Pascal

Gina Carano is heading to a galaxy far, far away.

Variety reports that Pedro Pascal is in talks to star in the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, a piece of casting that was previously rumoured but unconfirmed.

Although only a loose description has been revealed, the show sounds like it's taking a Western-style approach to its story, with The Mandalorian as a "lone gunfighter" trying to survive on the outer edge of the galaxy, far from the civilized heart of the of the New Republic trying to rebuild after the galactic civil war.

The series is one of several already unveiled original shows set to debut on Disney's Netflix rival next year, which will make the service worth a try.

Now, we may know what The Mandalorian looks like under his mask.

The Mandalorian is coming exclusively on Disney+, which is expected to launch by the end of 2019. As far as some of the others, Disney also announced in recent days that it will produce yet another Star Wars spinoff that serves as a prequel for the character Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna. Minor changes have been made to reflect this.
