Lizzo Makes Surprise Cameo on 'The Mandalorian'
Lizzo is joining the “Star Wars” universe.
The Grammy-winning singer made a surprise cameo during Season 3 of the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian.” In episode 6, “Guns for Hire,” the “Truth Hurts” hitmaker played Duchess, the wife of Jack Black’s Captain Bombardier. Together, the wealthy married couple rule the independent planet of Plazir-15.
During the episode, Baby Yoda aka Grogu used the Force to help Duchess win during a game of space bocce ball. In turn, Lizzo’s character picked up a sword and knighted Grogu.
The unexpected cameos, which also included Christopher Lloyd, left “Star Wars” fans shook. “‘Baby Yoda gets knighted by Lizzo and Jack Black’ was not on my 2023 bingo card,” tweeted one fan.
