New The Last Of Us fan art takes Pedro Pascal’s Joel and transforms him into Din Djarin from the actor’s other leading role in The Mandalorian.
A new piece of The Last Of Us fan art turns Pedro Pascal’s Joel into his role of Din Djarin from The Mandalorian. Set to make its debut on January 15, The Last Of Us is the first HBO series to be based on a video game and features Pascal as the show’s lead alongside fellow Game of Thrones alum Bella Ramsey as Ellie. Currently receiving rave advanced reviews from critics, The Last Of Us follows the story established by the hit PlayStation video game and sees Pascal’s smuggler Joel escort the 14-year-old Ellie across a dangerous post-apocalyptic wasteland infested with zombies in the hopes of finding a cure with her immunity.
Now a new piece of fan art from rahalarts.eth blends Pascal’s two famous TV roles together, replacing his version of Joel with the protective bounty hunter he plays on The Mandalorian.
Wearing his old armor from The Mandalorian season 1, Pascal’s Din Djarin looks almost at home protecting Ramsey’s Ellie as he does when taking care of Grogu in the hit Star Wars show. With both roles serving as strong father figures, this latest image only helps to further the many connections between the two characters that both fans, and Pascal himself, have already pointed out.

What The Last Of Us Means For Pedro Pascal’s Time On The Mandalorian
When Pascal was first announced to be taking the lead role in The Last Of Us back in 2021, many fans were concerned about what his casting might mean for his time on The Mandalorian. However, with filming on both The Last Of Us season 1 and The Mandalorian season 3 long since completed and the two shows already set to make their respective debuts, it would seem that Pascal was able to avoid any major scheduling conflicts this time around. The question remains, however, whether the actor’s ongoing commitments to his new role will have any implications for his time in the Star Wars universe moving forward.
At the moment it is not yet clear whether HBO will renew The Last Of Us for a potential season 2, though the series creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann have already hinted that if one does occur it will likely follow the story of the second game. Given the positive buzz already surrounding season 1, it would probably be a safe bet to assume that HBO will give serious consideration to providing the show with a renewal announcement sometime soon. If, or when, that happens, Pascal will likely need to carefully manage his time to allow him to continue to juggle both roles.
Of course, if The Last Of Us season 2 does indeed closely follow the storyline set out in the second game, Pascal’s involvement will likely be drastically reduced for the show’s sophomore outing. With The Last Of Us Part II set four years after the events of the first game, Joel’s character is killed off by a stranger named Abby, prompting Ellie to set out on a course of revenge. If the show chooses to follow this plot, Pascal will only be needed for season 2’s introduction and the occasional flashback, leaving him plenty of time to devote to working on The Mandalorian. In the meantime, audiences can see what Pascal brings to the role of Joel when The Last Of Us season 1 finally makes its highly anticipated debut on HBO and HBO Max.
