What do you think about Moff Gideon making an appearance in The Mandalorian‘s fourth season? According to Giancarlo Esposito, who played the villainous character in the first three seasons, it’s highly likely. Esposito’s portrayal of Moff Gideon has received critical acclaim and even earned him Emmy nominations. However, nothing has been officially confirmed yet.
Mandoverse Updates in a recent tweet quoted Giancarlo Esposito’s take on Moff Gideon’s return in season 4 of The Mandalorian:
Giancarlo Esposito on if Moth Gideon will be back in ‘The Mandalorian’ season 4-
“I know nothing about Season 4. (Jon) hasn’t tipped his hat to me. So many fans are like, “You were a clone, right?” It could be. I trust Jon knows what he’s doing. I would love to keep dying … pic.twitter.com/jCSftrBIup

According to a recent interview with DiscussingFilm, actor Giancarlo Esposito stated that there are no promises that his character, Moff Gideon, will appear in season 4 or future seasons of The Mandalorian. While he would be thrilled to reprise the role if offered, he also expressed support for the show’s creative decisions, including the possibility of continuing without his character. As a fan himself, Esposito’s main concern is the success of the show.
“I hope only to be able to have good work. I love The Mandalorian. Jon Favreau is a friend and I totally respect his creativity and his reinvention of this particular show, coupled with Dave Filoni, who I think is a genius. Dave especially, is a kid in a man’s body with a genius brain. So I hope the show goes on and I have no feelings about whether it will or won’t be included with me.”
Esposito’s opinion is not that Moff Gideon should return, but he believes that there is potential for the character to come back in season 4 of the show. The decision ultimately lies with the creatives involved, who may opt to take the story in a different direction.
“My ego says that they must have Moff Gideon, but I also want to serve the project. I would love to come back and it’s a special show because of the iconic mythology it deals with. But if they see fit that Moff should be gone, then that’s the truth. I mean, [after the Season 3 finale] people immediately started to band together like “Well, we saw all of those clones” and they’ve already made a story in their heads saying that’s not him dead, it’s a clone. Anything can happen, and I certainly don’t want to be attached to the outcome but I would love to come back and taunt Baby Yoda a little more.”
Giancarlo Esposito’s graced fans and audiences with his presence in London at the Live Star Wars Celebration:
Esposito shared his experience of attending this year’s Star Wars Celebration event in London. He confessed to feeling nervous while addressing the crowd, as he didn’t want to say anything wrong in front of the Star Wars bosses. However, being a fan himself, he also enjoys spreading the joy he feels towards the franchise to other fans. As a fan himself, he loves going to events where he can help others experience the same excitement he has for Star Wars. Esposito explains:
“I had a blast. It can be unnerving being with all those people, I always want to be myself but I’m always worried that I don’t want to take over things and project what I feel. I always look over at Jon [Favreau] and Dave [Filoni] and their mouths are half open and I’m thinking, ‘Am I saying the right thing, or am I not?’ (laughs) The opportunity to do The Mandalorian allowed me to be a kid again and it allowed me to fulfill a dream. When I watched the first Star Wars movie, it allowed me to feel like a hero. This show has allowed me to dream again and has made a very strong impact on my life. I always want to pass that on to the audience because yes, we’re watching entertainment, but do you get that this could be your journey too?”
The production of The Mandalorian season 4 has been put on hold until the writers’ strike is resolved. Originally scheduled to begin in October in Los Angeles, it is now uncertain when filming will begin. Fans may have to wait until 2025 before the new season is released.
