The announcement confirms plans for the movie, tentatively titled The Mandalorian and Grogu, to go in to production in 2024 under the watchful eye of Jon Favreau. Favreau will also act as producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy, and Dave Filoni.
“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.
Seasons 1-3 of The Mandalorian are available to stream now on Disney+.
