As The Mandalorian's Greef Karga, Carl Weathers has quickly become a firm fan-favourite among Star Wars fans. The character may have initially served as something of an antagonist, but after a fateful encounter with Grogu that saw the Force-sensitive child save his life, he had a change of heart and is now doing what he can to make Nevarro a better place.
The actor previously stepped behind the camera to direct "Chapter 12: The Siege," and will return to his directing duties for tomorrow's "Chapter 20."
While episode titles are typically kept under wraps until dropping on Disney+, Weathers has gone ahead and revealed his early! As you can see below (via SFFGazette.com), it seems we can expect it to be called "The Foundling."
Over the weekend, we learned that this instalment of The Mandalorian will be one of the shortest to date, and speculated that it could be because we're finally getting Grogu's origin story. Dave Filoni co-wrote the episode and the trailers teased a return to that fateful night when Order 66 was enacted and The Child somehow escaped.
That's long overdue and is likely to inform Moff Gideon's eventual return and whatever it was he was hoping to achieve with the Empire's cloning efforts.
In other news, Lucasfilm has also released character posters for Elia Kane (Amnesty Officer G68) and Dr. Penn Pershing (Amnesty Scientist L52).
They were front and centre in last week's episode of The Mandalorian, with Elia eventually turning on Pershing after seemingly revealing that she's infiltrating the New Republic from the inside. That has to be at Gideon's behest, though why he'd want to take the cloner off the table remains to be seen.
Check out Elia and Pershing's posters in the Tweet below.
