Following up on their release of a high resolution image from the series, Entertainment Weekly spoke with actor Pedro Pascal on how the character he portrays in The Mandalorian is different from Boba Fett. Series creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni also chime in with comments that further highlight the differences between the two characters with Favreau mentioning how the landscape of the live-action series has a major impact on how Pascal’s Mandalorian (he has an official name that has not yet been revealed) operates in order to survive.
Pascal notes that his character has good intentions in mind, though they may not always be clear to those around him.
“Ultimately he wants to do the right thing,” Pascal says. “But his duties could very much be in conflict with his destiny and doing the right thing has many faces. It can be a very windy road.”
The premiere episode of The Mandalorian (an eight episode Season 1) arrives on Nov. 12 with the launch of the new Disney+ streaming service.
