The Mandalorian and his little green friend Grogu—the stars of the hit Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian—have taken many adventures in the galaxy far, far away. Now, they’re heading somewhere completely different: the big screen.
A new theatrical film directed by Jon Favreau—the creator of The Mandalorian—and produced by Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy—the President of Lucasfilm—and Dave Filoni is set to go into production this year starring the galactic pair.
“I have loved telling stories set in the rich world that George Lucas created,” Favreau said. “The prospect of bringing the Mandalorian and his apprentice Grogu to the big screen is extremely exciting.”
Kennedy added that “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 new film will lead Lucasfilm’s ongoing feature-development slate including projects helmed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, James Mangold and Filoni, among those in the works.
Filoni is also currently developing the second season of the popular Disney+ series, Ahsoka.
