The Mandalorian and Grogu (AKA Baby Yoda) are embarking on a new adventure that will debut in cinemas. Directed by Jon Favreau, and produced by Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy and Dave Filoni, this new chapter – a continuation of the hit Disney+ series – will go into production later this year.
Favreau commented: “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.”
Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm, 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 will lead Lucasfilm’s ongoing feature-development slate, which includes films helmed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, James Mangold and Filoni – who is also currently developing Ahsoka Season 2 for Disney+.
