Just last month the live-action Star Wars show set to appear on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, wowed fans around the world with an exclusive image featuring the show’s mysterious lead character and the release of the name; The Mandalorian. But now the man behind the mask has been revealed and of course, I’m here to share this exciting news with you all.
Pedro Pascal, who you may know for his lead role in the critically-acclaimed Netflix series, Narcos and his role in the Emmy-winning series Game of Thrones, has been announced to play the lead in The Mandalorian. Um, how awesome is that?
First off, he looks like he’d be an awesome Star Wars character. Secondly, it looks like Disney is continuing the trend of diversity by casting the lead as a man of color for the series. That’s always exciting. And third, because he is such an incredible actor he will bring a delightful grittiness to this bounty hunter series.
This is GREAT news and now I am even more excited for this show.

When Disney announced it was making its own streaming service I wasn’t exactly sure how awesome that was going to be. Then it was announced that Star Wars was going to have its first live-action Star Wars series on the streaming service and my mind was utterly blown. But the exciting announcements haven’t stopped there. Recently rumors surrounding live-action series for some of the MCU’s most prominent characters (Loki, Falcon, The Winter Soldier, and Scarlet Witch) have been mentioned as well.
Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced today that there will indeed be more live-action series and they will involve Rogue One‘s Cassian Andor and Loki. How exciting is that?!
Cassian was my favorite character in Rogue One because of his compelling storyline and now that backstory that I’ve been so interested to learn is going to be told in live-action series form. Awesome!
And Loki has also become one of my favorite characters in the MCU and so even though he perished at the literal hand of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War his story will live on through this live-action series.
And the best news is that both Diego Luna and Tom Hiddleston will reprise their roles for these series. I honestly couldn’t be more excited about this streaming service. Two Star Wars live-action series, at least one Marvel live-action show, the final season of The Clone Wars, and who knows what else will be planned. Thank you, Disney. You have made my day.

So if you’ve been keeping up with Disney you know the company is making a streaming service that’s set to come out next year called Disney Play. This streaming service is going to deliver exclusive content to everyone for a minimal fee. That includes new Star Wars content, Disney films, animated exclusives, but it also seems that the service will give us some exciting new things to look forward to with Marvel as well.
A few weeks ago it was announced that the streaming service would feature television shows focusing on two Marvel favorites; Scarlet Witch and Loki. Whether Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston will reprise the roles is still a mystery but the talk of these series has been circling. But now there’s been an update.
As of yesterday, it was announced that Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan would reprise their roles as Falcon and Bucky a.k.a The Winter Soldier for a limited series on the Disney Play streaming service. And get this. It’s already found a writer for the series. Now, how exciting is that?
Falcon and Bucky are some of my favorite heroes in the MCU but they’re never given much to do other than be awesome sidekicks. Well, that changes with this limited series and I can’t wait to watch it. It’s going to be awesome!
