In the past we've looked at a number of appearances of Star Wars stars on the beloved children's show Sesame Street. You can see Part I here and Part II here. This time we're looking specifically at performers from the Disney+ hit show The Mandalorian!
|Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon|
Long before he was the imposing Moff Gideon on The Mandalorian, Giancarlo Esposito was "Mickey" the friendly Camp Counselor (or is it "Ricky"? Watch the clip and see) when Big Bird went away to camp. This was over several episodes back in 1982!
|Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto|
Peli Motto was played by actor/writer/comedian Amy Sedaris, who also appeared in several clips on Sesame Street back in 2006, discussing snacks with Cookie Monster and as Snow White in another episode.
|Ismael Cruz Córdova as Qin|
In one episode Córdova also voiced a Muppet rooster who runs a Cuba booth at a Latino festival.
And fittingly here's his singing a song called "What ryhmes with Mando?"
While she won't appear until sometime in Season 2, Rosario Dawson already has plenty of excitement growing for her role on The Mandalorian. Speaking of growing, as a child, Dawson made a brief appearance in a live-action segment on Sesame Street where several kids talk about their inner-city gardening.
