Star Wars Will Return to Theaters with a Mandalorian Film

Lucasfilm has been working to find a way to get Star Wars back into theaters; now they’ve revealed that their next film will feature two of the studio’s most popular characters. Via an official release on their website, it’s been revealed that the next Star Wars film will be directed by Jon Favreau and titled The Mandalorian & Grogu.

Through 3 seasons of the streaming series The Mandalorian, Favreau has proven that Star Wars is still a top-tier property with plenty of gas left in the tank. Now, he’s taking Din Djarin and his foundling, Grogu, to the big screen. “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.” The project is set to begin production in 2024 which should see it ready for theaters by the May 22, 2026 release date already set aside by Disney for a Star Wars film.

For some time, rumors have swirled that Lucasfilm was considering presenting the next chapter of The Mandalorian in a film and now it looks as though that is the case. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said, “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.”
