It looks like Din Djarin and Baby Yoda’s (aka Grogu) spacefaring saga is far from over. After a thrilling Season 3 finale that saw Mandalore’s Great Forge rekindled and Din officially adopting Grogu as his son (Din Grogu, no less!), their next stop is the big screen. Lucasfilm recently announced a Mandalorian feature film titled The Mandalorian & Grogu based on Disney+‘s The Mandalorian TV show is in development, offering fans a new cinematic chapter for the beloved duo.
The upcoming film will see The Mandalorian creator, Jon Favreau, in the director’s chair, who also serves as producer alongside Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Star Wars mainstay Dave Filoni. And that’s about all we currently know about the project. Neither plot nor cast details were revealed but given it will centre around Djarin and Grogu, it’s expected that Pedro Pascal will reprise his role as the bounty hunter.
Favreau created and show-runs the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, which centres on Pedro Pascal‘s helmet-wearing bounty hunter on the run to protect Grogu, a loveable young alien of Yoda’s species. As the live-action series completes three seasons and gears up for a fourth, it’s unclear where the upcoming film The Mandalorian & Grogu will fit into the saga’s timeline.
Talking a bit about the upcoming The Mandalorian movie, Jon Favreau in an official statement said, “I have loved telling stories set in the rich world that George Lucas created. The prospect of bringing the Mandalorian and his apprentice Grogu to the big screen is extremely exciting.” Lucasfilm’s president, Kathleen Kennedy, further added, “Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have ushered into Star Wars two new and beloved characters, and this new story is a perfect fit for the big screen.”
The Mandalorian & Grogu is also the first Star Wars film in production since the release of ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘ in 2019, which grossed USD $1 billion and marked the epic culmination of the original nine-chapter saga. Alongside the movie’s announcement, Lucasfilm also revealed that a second season of Ahsoka is in the works, with Dave Filoni set to direct. The announcement also outlined that The Mandalorian & Grogu spearhead Lucasfilm’s feature development slate, alongside films by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, James Mangold, and Dave Filoni.
While Favreau’s The Mandalorian film carries no release date, The Hollywood Reporter points out that Lucasfilm has an unnamed Star Wars feature on the slate for December 19, 2025, which many now speculate could be Favreau’s Mandalorian movie. Although Lucasfilm has not confirmed any release date.
