There's been chatter online about Lucasfilm potentially bringing The Mandalorian to the big screen for months now, but it's finally been confirmed. 

Titled The Mandalorian & Grogu, Jon Favreau is stepping behind the camera to direct with the Iron Man helmer also producing alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Dave Filoni. The plan now is for production to begin later this year, presumably with a 2025 release in mind. 

Where does this leave The Mandalorian season 4? Well, it's previously been rumoured that Favreau's scripts for that next batch of episodes evolved into a movie after last year's WGA strikes, so this may be meant as a replacement. Then again, as Mando is such a big draw on Disney+, season 4 could still follow somewhere down the line. We'll have to wait and see.

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

Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy 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."

In the press release, it's said The Mandalorian & Grogu will "lead Lucasfilm's ongoing feature-development slate," essentially confirming it will arrive before the Star Wars movies announced during last April's Star Wars Celebration. 

Those projects from Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, James Mangold, and Filoni are all still on the way, with the latter filmmaker currently developing Ahsoka season 2 for Disney+. That's no doubt pushed back his movie plans, particularly after Hollywood essentially came to a standstill for most of 2023. 

Disney needs some guaranteed box office hits after a rough couple of years and The Mandalorian & Grogu is bound to succeed in that respect. Both characters are immensely popular and we're intrigued to see what this means for them moving forward. Season 3 ended with Moff Gideon finally vanquished and Mandalore restored, meaning whatever story Favreau tells can serve as something of a fresh start for the duo.

Will this come out before the “Heir to the Empire” movie I wonder? Isn’t that suppose to be a crossover of The Mandalorian and the shows that follow it?
