Star Wars Celebration is an exciting convention filled with entertainment, celebrity appearances, stage shows, panels, interactive events, exclusive merchandise, screenings, and once-in-a-lifetime glimpses into the future of the epic saga.

Pascal then threw himself on the panel table, reenacting the feeling of being overwhelmed in the moment.

The topic next turned to the inspiration behind The Mandalorian's character. You wouldn't believe what I was seeing. Both were each other's first respective test audience and Filoni asked Favreau to voice a Mandalorian in the animated series. He returned for another two Season 2 episodes, one Season 4 episode, and two back-to-back installments for Season 5.

War's over. He's a peacetime Mandalorian. We got a look at the Mandalorian's ship, called the Razorcrest, and it's apparently a homage to Jango Fett's original ship (Kuat Drive Yards Amphibious Interstellar Assault Transport/infantry) seen in the Legends canon 2002 video game Bounty Hunter.
