Pedro Pascal Casually Revealed The Real Name Of ‘The Mandalorian’, Was Oddly Chill About It



Given the secrecy surrounding The Mandalorian thus far, you would imagine that those involved with the project are being as tight-lipped as possible about the intimate details of the show.

Warning: spoilers for The Mandalorian will follow.

With the series being one of the primary draws for the newly launched Disney+, the Mouse House has been understandably mum about where the show is headed, hoping fans subscribe to the service and tune in for themselves.

Hell, the show has been such a mystery thus far that fans have been kept in the dark about the lead character’s name. Well, at least they were being kept in the dark.

Speaking to ScreenSlam, Pedro Pascal — the series’ star — casually revealed the true name of his character, which has only been known as The Mandalorian up until this point: Dyn Jarren.

“The Mandalorian, whose name is Dyn Jarren, is your iconically cool, flawed, mysterious, loner gunslinger that harkens to the best of the samurai movies and westerns,” Pascal says.

Considering that the clip looks like it was filmed on set, this either took place A) a while ago or B), and stay woke on this one, recently as they film season two.

Point being, the blame obviously can’t be placed on Pascal, as he’s merely talking to a camera — he doesn’t know when or where the clip is going to be aired. But it just feels like someone had to have messed up here considering how secretive Disney has been about the details of The Mandalorian. With the character’s name not even being mentioned in the premiere episode, you have to imagine that was a nugget the show was definitely saving for later.

Also, quick sidebar, shout out to Pedro Pascal who has been on a hell of a run since his star turn as Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones. Dude has crushed it in Narcos, has starred in blockbusters Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Equalizer 2, and Triple Frontier while also still getting critical praise for roles in indie flicks such as Prospect and If Beale Street Could Talk. Oh, and he’s also got Wonder Woman 1984 on deck. Like I said, hell of a run.
