The Internet’s favorite daddy, Pedro Pascal, will be taking The Mandalorian to the big screen.

Pascal, 48, will be leading a feature film called The Mandalorian and Grogu for the Star Wars universe, making a big screen chapter to the popular Star Wars television show that Pascal stars in, Variety reported. Created by Jon Favreau, Pascal plays The Mandalorian, a lone bounty hunter who goes on the lam to protect Grogu (a.k.a. Baby Yoda) from the Imperial Forces. Premiering in 2019, the show has received both critical and commercial success over its three seasons.

The cast also includes Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, the show’s main villain, director Werner Herzog as “The Client” and comedian Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto. Other actors from previous Star Wars media have also made appearances like Timothy Olyphant, Katee Sackhoff, Rosario Dawson and Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker.

While it’s unclear where the film will fit into the television show’s three season timeline, with season four currently in development, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy expressed excitement for the project from Favreau and Ashoka creator Dave Filoni in a statement. “Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have ushered into Star Wars two new and beloved characters, and this new story is a perfect fit for the big screen,” Kennedy said.
