The actor, who had only one 3-second-long scene without his helmet in the first season, was frustrated of being in the heavy Mandalorian suit all the time and thus became difficult to handle on set. But, things took a sharp turn downhill when Pascal reached out to Lucasfilm, who was already interested in making major changes to the script. Randolph stated that Lucasfilm is looking to change the script of the second season in order to focus on standalone episodes rather than having a collective story, which was hinted towards the end of the first season.

Pascal reached out to Lucasfilm did not sit well with the makers of the show who then asked him to leave the project altogether. Pedro then quit the filming of the second season mid-way and has been disassociated with the series since then. If true, the Star Wars has yet again fallen into troubled waters after years of criticism, which The Mandalorian, to some extent, was able to subside. However, with the nature of the character of The Mandalorian, any actor can pick up the mantle of the character as far as he is under the helmet.
