Confirming the rumors, Disney and Lucasfilm have announced Jon Favreau is directing The Mandalorian and Grogu which will start filming this year.

Rumors have offered The Mandalorian Season 4 would be transitioned into a big feature-length movie though the trades are stating Season 4 is still in development.

The trades also point out that it hasn’t been confirmed if the flick will star Pedro Pascal who is also rumored to be starring in Marvel’s Fantastic Four and has HBO’s The Last of Us Season 2 this year.

A release date has also not been announced though Disney has an untitled Star Wars release date set for Dec. 19, 2025, thought to to be for The Mandalorian and Grogu and not the new Rey movie.

The announcement below also confirms Dave Filoni is developing Ahsoka Season 2.

The Mandalorian and Grogu are embarking on a new adventure — to movie theaters.

Directed by Jon Favreau, and produced by Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, and Dave Filoni, The Mandalorian & Grogu will go into production in 2024.

“I have loved telling stories set in the rich world that George Lucas created,” said Favreau. “The prospect of bringing the Mandalorian and his apprentice Grogu to the big screen is extremely exciting.”

“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,” added Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.

The Mandalorian & Grogu will lead Lucasfilm’s ongoing feature-development slate, including films helmed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, James Mangold, and Dave Filoni, who is also currently developing Ahsoka Season 2, among those in the works.

This is the Way.
