'Star Wars' star Oscar Isaac jokes he wanted to kill Baby Yoda after watching 'The Mandalorian'
When you are working on a project as massive as 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker', you don't get a lot of time to binge on Disney+ shows. Apparently, Oscar Isaac, who plays Poe Dameron in the sequel trilogy, was one of the few who did not watch 'The Mandalorian' until recently.
During a chat with MTV News, Isaac joked that the interviewer was giving him a "sad Baby Yoda face". This led to the interviewer mentioning that Isaac hadn't watched 'The Mandalorian' the last time they had spoken.
"No, it's true," Isaac confirmed before saying, "And then I saw it and I wanted to kill it, so what does that say about your face?"
During the same interview, the 40-year-old actor also spoke about the reactions to 'Rise of Skywalker', which has done pretty well at the box office. The film was, however, ripped apart by fans who were sorely disappointed with how it ended the Skywalker Saga. Based on his comments, it does not look like Isaac was happy about what people were saying but he seems to have accepted that you cannot please everyone.
"You know, it was the same on the movie before that as well," he said. "You know people — it means a lot to people." He added, "Look, was there some crying in the shower? Yes!"
'Rise of Skywalker' was generally met with brutal criticism for its flimsy story and terrible pacing. But despite how terrible it might have been as a movie, it has already made over a billion dollars internationally. So it's unlikely that anyone who worked on the project is shedding too many tears over it.
Isaac also spoke about his upcoming movie 'Dune' and his co-star on the project, Timothée Chalamet.
"He's incredible," Isaac said. "He's an incredible young actor. He's so gifted. It's so annoying how gifted he is 'cause when I was that age I was not doing that."
He also added that "it's gonna really be a special one".
'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' was released in theaters on December 20, 2019.
'Dune' is scheduled for release on December 18.
And if you haven't seen Baby Yoda yet, all the episodes of 'The Mandalorian' Season 1 are currently available for streaming on Disney+. Whether watching it makes you want to kill the 50-year-old infant as well is entirely dependent on you.
