Pedro Pascal Had To Get Permission From The Mandalorian Crew To Join The Last Of Us

In a feature article in The Hollywood Reporter about the lofty expectations for “The Last of Us,” Pascal was quick to point out the connective tissue between Disney’s “The Mandalorian” and HBO’s new zombie-adjacent horror show. “It definitely came to mind,” he admitted. “I noticed there are so many things I’ve seen that visually or thematically reference ‘The Last of Us’. Like ‘Logan.'” 

That’s right! “Logan” follows an aging Wolverine trying to protect a young feral girl deemed a mutant weapon named X-23 — yet another version of the same story. Pascal went on to reference “Lone Wolf and Cub” and the “Papermoon” anime as well. Still, if Pascal was going to be in two separate TV shows sharing so much in common, it might as well be a hugely popular “Star Wars” show and a series based on one of the best reviewed video games ever. He continued: 

“But as far as ‘Mandalorian’ and ‘The Last of Us’ existing in close proximity, for me, it’s the best double-dipping I could possibly imagine.”
