Transcript for Pedro Pascal and director Jon Favreau on 'The Mandalorian'
I'm excited. Now to all the buzz about "The mandalorian." The first live action "Star wars" series. The highly anticipated second episode out now on Disney plus in morning. Chris Connelly sat down with star Pedro Pascal, and executive producer Jon Favreau, good morning, Chris. Reporter: Good morning, Sara. Yay. Series creator Jon Favreau says it is inspired by some of the things that inspired George Lucas when he created "Star wars," westerns with Clint Eastwood on horseback and those matinee serials that ended in a cliffhanger like the omg surprise that it serd up this week. We headed to the set to learn more. You go et to put this helmet on and let your imagination sort of run wild. Reporter: Created by ace filmmaker Jon Favreau and starring "Game of thrones" charismatic Pedro Pascal alive and kicking under the helmet. It's strangely liberating to be honest with you. Reporter: "The mandalorian" is the first "Star wars" live action series ever. Its episodes appearing only on the streaming service Disney plus. You are a mandalorian. You see characters that are warriors but also have a code. Reporter: The cliffhanger end of its first episode blew the doors off social media with its bounty hunter hero unveiling a baby, even its masterminds were anxious. It was anxious for us to get to the premiere of the show without anyone finding out about the baby. I'll confess. I've never gotten into trouble but I'm not the best at keeping secrets. And this was the first time that I took you very seriously. Yes. I wouldn't -- I didn't tell my family. I can bring you in warm or I can bring you in cold. Reporter: What do you admire about your character? Well, I love his mystery. It isn't as easy as you think and it isn't just about not knowing who he is or where he's from but also how he hides himself within the armor and what he hides from himself. Reporter: Like the audience these two share a lifetime love of "Star wars." What was your "Star wars" past? We know that Jon worked as a movie usher during "Return of the jedi" and saw it over and over again. What about you? My whole childhood was shaped so, so much of our childhood was shaped by "Star wars." The movies and the merchandise. Literally have the action figures. Oh, absolutely. My favorite toys and -- That's fun. You can react who shoots first over and over again. To step into a job that stimulates in such a visceral way your childhood memories, I'm not going to lie, it's very strange. Yeah, I think this kicks up happy childhood memories for a lot of people. Well after its buzzy launch "The mandalorian" has episode two dropping today on Disney plus. Guys. We are all very excited about that. All right, Chris, thank you so much.
