Pedro Pascal revealed, “The Mandalorian — whose real name is Dyn Jarren — is your iconically cool, flawed, mysterious, loner gunslinger that harkens to the best of the samurai movies and the Westerns and in talking to [showrunner Jon Favreau] I asked him what should I be looking at. I know he loves movies. I love movies. What should I be watching? And he immediately brought up Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa, Yojimbo, and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. So, he’s very samurai, Clint and me.”

So there we have it! “Mando’s” real name is Dyn Jarren. The character has yet to be named within the series, but since this information has been shared, more than likely it will become relevant at some point within the series.

Recently, a fan took to twitter and asked : “I wonder how Pedro Pascal feels about being ruthlessly outshined by a puppet”, meaning “Baby Yoda“. Pascal expertly replied: “I’m cool [with] it”.

“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.”
