The producers confirmed the main cast for Joel and Ellie to be The Mandalorian‘s Pedro Pascal and Game of Thrones‘ Bella Ramsey. Both have worked together briefly in the hit HBO series and fans are excited to see them reunited again.

Following the immense success in The Mandalorian, fans are excited to see him play as the beloved Joel. Some argue that another GOT star, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is much more suited for the role in terms of physical similarities. Despite that, many are also pleased with the selection. Pascal has given a convincing performance as a father figure in the Star Wars IP. It is likely that he will bring Joel’s character justice.

For those of you who do not know, the trees around the water slide actually have functions of their own. It is not there just for aesthetic purposes. ESCAPE Penang has transplanted more than 100 trees, rescuing them from construction sites where they would have been cut down. ESCAPE has a ‘tree adoption’ program that encourages landowners to contact ESCAPE for transplanting unwanted trees from their lands to sites operated by ESCAPE.
