Did you spot Jon Favreau’s Cameo in ‘The Mandalorian‘? The latest episode of The Mandalorian that premiered on Nov 22nd gave us a closer look at a few new Mandalorian bounty hunters, one of which challenges the protagonist, Dyn Jarren. A new character, Paz Vizla, who seems large and in charge initially toys with Dyn and even threatened to remove his helmet at one point.
According to Screen Rant, “Paz Vizla was voiced by Favreau as confirmed by Vanity Fair. Meanwhile, it was Tait Fletcher, the real-life MMA fighter, John Wick villain and the guy who played one of the cantina tough guys from The Mandalorian‘s first episode, who played the character physically.”
Jan Favreau is one of the show runners for the series and lent his voice for the character and implemented a new catch phrase for the series: “This is the way.” The Mandalorian has quickly become a fan favorite for Star Wars fans, with many even saying they are more excited for the next episode of the Disney+ series than they are for the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on Dec 20th.
“After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
