Not to take anything away from Baby Yoda, who has admittedly rocked in that role, but Tabs also auditioned for the part of cute sidekick in The Mandalorian.
Yup, we don’t really know for sure why he didn’t get the part, but I suspect it had to do with his long-running feud with Jon Favreau. You see, Jon wrote Chef with Tabs in mind for the lead part, but Tabs turned it down because he said there weren’t enough recipes involving gravy.
That’s why Jon ended up having to star in and direct the movie himself…
As you know, Tabs was a huge Star Wars fan throughout his life. His portrayal of cat Jedi Master F.T. (Fussy Tabby) Catwalker in Star Cats: The Fierce Awakens is widely regarded as the greatest purrformance in science fiction history.
Tabs loved Star Wars so much. I think he would have really enjoyed The Mandalorian.
The first season was fantastic! Whenever we watched it, we thought of Tabs and how much he would have loved watching it with us.
