THE MANDALORIAN Star Giancarlo Esposito Says Moff Gideon "Would Really Like To Be A Mandalorian"

The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito has teased his role in the Star Wars TV series ahead of its return next year, revealing that Moff Gideon dreams of...being a Mandalorian?! Read on for details!

The Mandalorian's Moff Gideon has quickly established himself as one of the most intriguing villains in the entire Star Wars franchise. Played by Breaking Bad and The Boys star Giancarlo Esposito, there's clearly a lot more to him than just what we see on the surface, and Gideon no doubt holds a lot of power within what remains of the Empire. 

Is he working for Grand Admiral Thrawn? Does he want The Child so he can clone Emperor Palpatine? What the heck is his endgame, for that matter? Those are questions that have yet to be answered in the Disney+ series, though Esposito has at least shed some light on the latter. 

"Moff Gideon would really like to be a Mandalorian, and there’s a reason for it," the actor tells EW (via "That’s his psychological, real problem."

"He really wants to be a Mandalorian because the strength and power of the Mandalorians is not necessarily that they are individuals. It’s that they are part of a group that have an ideal and a morality."

"And that to me is really powerful in our story," Esposito continues, "so all of these elements of the story really intrigue me and allow me to be really thankful and grateful to be in this universe."

These comments actually line up with what we recently heard about the Moff donning a suit of Mandalorian armour in the show's upcoming third season. Knowing he wants to be like the Mandalorians lends a perverse new twist to his mission, especially when he actually helped destroy Mandalore and wielded the Darksaber for a time (which fed into his weird fantasy).

When we last saw Gideon, he was seemingly being taken into the New Republic's custody, so how he frees himself to embark on his fantasy of becoming a Mandalorian remains to be seen. However, he's more than powerful enough to break free in a quest for revenge against Din Djarin. 

What we do know is that The Mandalorian season 3 is set to premiere on Disney+ next February.
