The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin is a simple man who is being swept up in a lot greater story. Phase Zero host Brandon Davis had the chance to speak with leader maker Rick Famuyiwa and star Pedro Pascal after The Mandalorian Season 3’s new teaser trailer played at the D23 Exhibition in Anaheim throughout the end of the week and finally made its way online. Famuyiwa has composed and coordinated for The Mandalorian since its first season however it is just with Season 3 that he’s turned into a leader maker. He spoke about what it means to turn out to be part of The Mandalorian’s creative leadership alongside series creator Jon Favreau and Star Wars veteran Dave Filoni.
“I’ve been a part of the storytelling in this world since the second episode and what’s been great about how Jon and Dave have collaborated is that they’ve they’ve always included and wanted and they’re really pushed for the directors to bring their own points of view and vision,” Famuyiwa says. “And so I’ve been doing that within the episodes that I was I was directing, also writing, and presently just to have the option to expand upon that into leader producing and continuing to guide, It’s been really amazing. And so, you know, I think we we’ve just been trying to recount this simple story of a fellow and his kid, complications continue to happen in his life, so whatever I could do to bring that to life, it’s been great.”
He proceeded to talk about how The Mandalorian’s story is a really a simple one about a simple man and that it has filled in scope simply as a result of being set in the Star Wars universe. “That’s what’s been great about the processes, how organic it’s been and that, yes, there’s some thoughts, I think now, about how it expands, yet I think initially it’s just really the simple act of telling this story,” he says. “I think Jon was trying to hold it back from becoming so large when he initially considered it, yet I think it’s Star Wars, it would never be contained. It’s never really about plotting a master plan, however there are a ton of stories that are going to continued to tell in Star Wars and some of them have gotten through our show.”
The larger scope comes through in The Mandalorian Season 3’s trailer, which sees Din Djarin traveling to Mandalore and convening with many other Mandalorians. Pascal emphasized that Din remains a simple man who just wants to be a father to Grogu. “At the point when [Famuyiwa] says that you start with something simple and continue to work around that, I just find it fascinating that such a person that kind of insists on simplicity and living his life in such a simple way, The Way, this is The Way, I think that for somebody to discover who they are with as much resistance, as they can, they can muster is a fascinating thing to watch,” Pascal says.
