Ouch. Have you witnessed the moment Pedro Pascal, the man beneath the Mandalorian helmet, accidentally let slip an alternative identity for everyone’s favorite pint-sized Force wielder?
As Pedro Pascal sat on the couch at The Graham Norton Show, he was like a smuggler caught red-handed by the Empire. With the words “Baby Yoda” falling from his mouth in response to a couple of leading questions from the host, you could practically see the Disney executives furiously tapping on their keyboards, preparing their cease and desist letters. Pascal’s face was a mix of anxiety and guilt as though he had accidentally cracked open the carbonite chamber holding Han Solo!
Of course, Pascal’s panic was understandable. Revealing this alternative identity for “Baby Yoda” – or Grogu, as we now know him – is akin to the Mandalorian removing his helmet in public: a big no-no! The actor must have felt like he was in a galaxy far, far away from any hope of redemption.
But let’s not be too hard on Pascal. After all, it’s only natural for a man who spends so much time with a tiny green co-star to let the odd piece of misinformation – or secret truth – slip. Plus, let’s face it: Pascal’s blunder only made the moment all the more endearing, as fans across the globe shared in his collective “oops.”
However, this indiscretion might have sealed his fate in the Star Wars universe. In the next season of The Mandalorian, don’t be surprised if Mando finds himself facing off against a new and powerful foe. Imagine the scene: Mando walks into a dimly lit cantina, only to hear the menacing squeak of the most feared Disney character in the galaxy. There, in the corner, stands Mickey Mouse, clad in battle-worn Beskar armor, ears poking through his helmet, with a lightsaber in hand.
Mando: “I’ve heard stories of your legend, Mr Mouse. They say you’re the one who owns the stars themselves.”
Mickey: “Well, Mando, when you reveal secrets that aren’t yours to tell, you awaken the wrath of the true keeper of the galaxy. Ho-ho!”
Cue the epic battle between our beloved Mandalorian and Mickey Mouse, a clash of titans that will shake the very foundation of Disney+! As they engage in a fierce duel, sparks flying and sabers clashing, viewers will be left wondering whether Mando’s slip-up was worth the wrath of the Mouse. And as for Pedro Pascal, perhaps he’ll keep a tighter grasp on the secrets of the galaxy from now on – or risk facing off against even more Disney legends.
