We’re just gonna put this out there: Kerrang! basically predicted that Jack Black would appear in this latest series of The Mandalorian.
“Perhaps we’ll now see him sneak in a cameo for season three?!” we wrote all the way back in January 2021, after the Tenacious D legend recreated his own rocking version of the Star Wars spin-off show’s theme tune.
Well, now it’s happened, and Jack was joined in the brand-new Mando episode – Chapter 22: Guns For Hire – with the one and only Lizzo, with the pair starring as the rulers of planet Plazir-15.
Jack Black played Captain Bombardier and the pop superstar was aptly called The Duchess, while elsewhere Back To The Future legend Christopher Lloyd also made a cameo in the same episode as Commissioner Helgait.
Jack later shared a selfie with his on-screen Star Wars partner writing: “So fun working with @lizzobeeating on @themandalorian as the king and queen of Plazir-15!!!” Meanwhile Lizzo very excitedly took to Instagram to write: “I’m in Star Wars YALL!”
Watch a snippet of the episode below, in which Lizzo knights Grogu (aka Baby Yoda):
