A few months ago it was confirmed by Jon Favreau that the Star Wars bounty hunter droid Ig-88 would be appearing in The Mandalorian. It was also previously rumored early on that director Taika Waititi would be providing the voice of a droid in the series.
Well, we’ve now learned thanks to an Instagram post shared by Favreau that the droid Waititi will be voicing is actually Ig-88. You can see a photo of the filmmaker in the recording studio below with Ig-88 on the screen. There’s also a cool-looking Mandalorian hemet in the photo as well.
