2019 proved to be a phenomenal year for Star Wars. That success is, in part, due to the launch of the franchise’s first live-action series, The Mandalorian. Lucasfilm’s hit Disney+ venture features a litany of intriguing characters. Notably, Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon. During a conversation with ComicBook.com, Esposito teased some exciting news regarding the show’s second season, specifically when it comes to the iconic weapon wielded by the Jedi Knights.
“The prop guys were wondering about me because I was in a bit of a commotion and struggle with someone else,” explained Esposito. “Major, major, epic lightsaber action happening on this show, and I should mention that I’m the only character in the first season who was able to be honored with having that lightsaber.”
For those unaware, Esposito’s Moff Gideon was seen in possession of a Darksaber. A Darksaber is a black bladed variation of the lightsaber created by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian in the Jedi Order. However, it’s unclear as to how Gideon came into ownership of such a weapon. Though, that question will likely be answered by the time season 2 rolls around this fall. Could Gideon wind up dueling Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian, or perhaps someone else?
