Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis may be joining the second season of the Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.
Jamie Lee Curtis has been having something of a career revival over the past couple of years. Thanks to critical and financial hits like Halloween, (2018) and Knives Out, Jamie Lee Curtis is reminding everyone why she was once one of Hollywood’s most sought after stars. Now, it seems that she might be adding a Star Wars property to her already impressive resume.
According to Making Star Wars.net, Jamie Lee Curtis was spotted on the set of the second season of The Mandalorian. Writer and site editor, Jason Ward did, however, stress that this was just a rumor and that he could not get confirmation on whether or not she was involved in The Mandalorian‘s second season. She had apparently been around the set multiple times, making it more likely that she has a role in the show, as opposed to simply visiting.
What do you all make of this new rumor? What role could Jamie Lee Curtis have in The Mandalorian if she was, in fact, cast? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Here is the official synopsis for The Mandalorian:
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, and Nick Nolte. The Star Wars series was written by Jon Favreau, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is also on board as a co-executive producer.
Dave Filoni directed the first episode of The Mandalorian and additional episodes of the Star Wars series were helmed by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa, and Jessica Jones director Deborah Chow.
The Mandalorian season one is now available exclusively on Disney Plus.
