Giancarlo Esposito Says He Broke 3 Darksaber’s During Filming of ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2. Fans are buzzing as more and more news begins to pour out about the highly anticipated second season for The Mandalorian, exclusively on Disney+. Giancarlo Esposito, who plays the villainous Moff Gideon, recently spoke with IMDb about filming season 2 for the series and shared how wielding a lightsaber, or in this case darksaber, isn’t sa easy as it looks on screen.
“I’m decent. I’m getting better. But you have to respect the power of it, the energy of it,” Esposito explained. “It’s long, dude. I’ve bopped myself three times already. Pop in the head, I’m like oh my God, what do I do? I start laughing. People look at me, they want me to be the expert right off the bat, because I’m the bad ass. But you know what? It takes practice. So we have long ones, we have short ones. Because sometimes they have to put it in. And guess what? I can say this? I can say it, I can say it. I’m going through it in my head, spoilers, blah blah blah. I can say it. I’ve broken three of those bad boys.”
We can’t wait to see the big showdown between Moff Gideon and, possibly, Ahsoka Tano in Season 2 of The Mandalorian! The new season is bound to be full of excellent content as the Star Wars Universe expands even further than before. What are you most excited about for season 2? Are you happy to see returning cast members such as Bill Burr (Mayfeld)? Or for newcomers such as Rosario Dawson (Ahsoka Tano) and Michael Biehn? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
