Giancarlo Esposito Speaks About Wielding the Darksaber in Season 2 of The Mandalorian

Giancarlo Esposito spoke with ComingSoon.net about wielding the Darksaber at the premiere of Stargirl earlier this week.

Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian, went through quite a few prop sabers, apparently. “I want to say I’ve destroyed quite a few of them and the prop guys go, ‘Wow, you go all in.'”

Esposito has a true passion and a love for the Star Wars universe, which shines through in this interview. 

“Originally George Lucas had a mentor and friend in Joseph Campbell. Joseph Campbell was all about the power of myth and the journey of the hero. Isn’t every one of our journeys the journey of the hero? We have our own hurdles to jump over and our own visions on our head that we want to hit.”

He is excited for this next season of The Mandalorian, and for the show as a whole, saying, “I love this show. I really do. It’s visionary in so many ways and I am happy to be a part of it.”

His passion is infectious! We’re getting closer every day to the second season, but we’ve got a while to go!
