On the back of the fandom’s reaction to The Mandalorian’s surprising cameos, we explain why Lizzo was in Chapter 22, introduce you to her character, The Duchess, and discuss the Guns for Hire cast.
With the conclusion to season 3 on the horizon, Star Wars fans are beginning to speculate that Moff Gideon’s rescue was orchestrated by Imperial Super Commandos or possibly Rook Kast.
Created by Jon Favreau for Disney Plus and starring Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin who is hired to track down a child known as Grogu – more commonly Baby Yoda – but ends up doing everything he can to protect him from Imperial forces.
Why is Lizzo in The Mandalorian?
Lizzo was in The Mandalorian in a guest role simply because the singer is a huge fan of the Disney Plus show.
After the episode aired, Lizzo posed in a Twitter photo surrounded by Grogu merchandise and the singer even dressed up as the baby for Halloween back in 2021.
This wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity has had a cameo in the Star Wars franchise just because they’re a fan, as many actors and musicians even request to be an extra Stormtrooper just so they can be a part of the universe in some capacity.
Who is The Duchess from The Mandalorian’s Plazir-15?
Lizzo’s character, The Duchess, is introduced when Din Djarin and Bo-Katan arrive on the Outer Rim planet, Plazir-15.
Born to a native noble family, The Duchess fell in love with former Imperial officer, Captain Bombardier, after the fall of the Empire and the wedded couple soon became rulers of the planet.
It was also explained that the rulers repurposed CIS droids to work on Plazir-15 alongside the Ugnaughts.
