When The Mandalorian Season 2 rolls around later this year, expect to see more of Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon. The Breaking Bad actor didn’t appear in the Disney+ Star Wars series until the penultimate episode of the first season, but we did get the feeling we’d just been introduced to the series’ Big Bad. Gideon seemed to know a lot about the show’s heroes—Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian, Gina Carano’s Cara Dune, and Carl Wathers’ Greef Karga. Oh, and Baby Yoda I suppose, who is basically the show’s living MacGuffin.
At the end of The Mandalorian Season 1 finale, Gideon was bested by the heroes but emerged from his TIE Fighter wielding a dark lightsaber. The “darksaber” as it’s called is a vital piece of Star Wars mythology (at least to those who watched the Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels animated series), so we had a feeling that wouldn’t be the last we’d see of Moff Gideon. And we were correct.
TCA - /Film - Esposito - Moff - Gideon
Speaking at the TCA’s with /Film, Esposito confirmed that Moff Gideon has a larger role in The Mandalorian Season 2:
“It’s growing,” Esposito said. “Yes, I do. I most certainly do.”
Mean - Serialized
Does that mean we’ll be getting more serialized...
