Pedro Pascal drops The Mandalorian's name in new interview

The marketing of Disney's live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian has told the audience the lead character is a lone, gunslinger collecting bounties across the outer rim. Even in the first episode, The Mandalorian is asked if it's true Mandalorians never remove their helmet. While money pours into Vegas on whether or not The Mandalorian will remove his helmet, Pedro Pascal has helped fans with name dropping the true identity of this bounty hunter.

The first episode of The Mandalorian dropped on Disney+ November 12th, 2019.

In an interview posted by Screen Slam, Pedro Pascal identifies The Mandalorian as Dinn Zharren. The spelling isn't for certain. That's because one only hears him say the name and no official media package has the spelling available. The original article uses Dynn Zharren but if the writer admits that's a guess at best.


The value of this information is determining what the value of the character's real name has for the story that will unfold over the next two seasons of The Mandalorian.

* My assumption is The Mandalorian worked to create a reputation of mystery and fear purposefully and that he wouldn't want his original name to be public knowledge.

Makes sense because if I was a bounty hunter, I'm not...but if I was I wouldn't want me personal information made public. Maybe this is a Vader type of situation where as a boy his town was invaded by the Separatists and he was orphaned so on that day Dinn Zharren died, and The Mandalorian was born? Maybe. I wouldn't put a Vegas bet on that either. One thing is for sure, the first episode of this series that dropped Tuesday and this insight from Pascal still offers very little about the overall story.


The second episode of The Mandalorian drops on Disney+ on November 15. For in-depth breakdowns of episodes and special guests, be sure you join us Friday nights for Streaming Star Wars with Ammo and Fletzer: A live Star Wars talk show dedicated to all things Star Wars on Disney+.
