Moff Gideon Will Play A Bigger Role in Season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian‘. Season 1 of The Mandalorian ended on a major cliffhanger after it was revealed that Moff Gideon survived his tie-fighter crash, and also revealed he currently wields the Darksaber. Though some fans may not be aware, the Darksaber was last seen in Star Wars: Rebels, and we are still scratching our heads about how it came to be in Gideon’s possession.
Regardless, we can’t wait to see more of Giancarlo Esposito’s ‘Moff Gideon’ in Season 2 since reports seem to be sharing that he will play an even bigger role in the popular Star Wars Series second season.
“It’s [The Mandalorian] growing,” said Esposito about Moff Gideon’s role in Season 2. “Yes, I do. I most certainly do.”
“It’s been exciting to be a part of that project because of the iconic nature of it, but even more so, because it has returned me to the Star Wars that I loved,” Giancarlo said. “I saw the first few movies and dropped away because it became more and more in a different vein than what I wanted to be in, but this is the true space western. It gives you room and space and each one is a little bit of a film. So you’re able to tell a story visually and it returns to the original guts of mythology based deeply rooted in Joe Campbell’s mythology which George Lucas was so fond of and which is why he was inclusive of that mythology in Star Wars so I’m pleased to be a part of that.”
