The Mandalorian & Grogu: everything we know so far about the next Star Wars movie

Mando and Grogu in The Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian & Grogu movie was a total surprise when it was announced, and it's still a Star Wars film that's pretty much surrounded by mystery. The latest update is an exciting new cast member – more on that below. 

The Mandalorian season 3 saw Mando and Baby Yoda settle together on Nevarro, but it looks like they're about to embark on a new adventure. Just what that entails is unknown for the moment, but there is some information out there to tide us over while we wait. 

Series creator Jon Favreau is set to direct the new film, with Ahsoka creator Dave Filoni and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy producing. For everything else there is to know about The Mandalorian & Grogu, head to the below. This is the Way!

The Mandalorian & Grogu movie is set to be released on May 22, 2026.

It will be the first new Star Wars movie since 2019's The Rise of Skywalker, and will be followed by the likes of Dave Filoni's film, the Rey movie, and James Mangold's film about the origins of the Force.

There's no trailer for The Mandalorian & Grogu movie just yet, and, with the film not set to release for a long while, it's unlikely we'll be seeing one anytime soon. Instead, expect to see a full trailer for the film much closer to the time – but a teaser could potentially land at Star Wars Celebration 2025.

So far, there are no confirmed cast members for The Mandalorian & Grogu. Sigourney Weaver is reported to be part of the line-up, though, but that's unconfirmed for now – and it's unclear who she'd be playing. 

We can probably expect Pedro Pascal to return as Mando, but beyond that, it's unclear just who we'll be seeing in the movie. The likes of Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze and Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano could make cameos, as could Amy Sedaris's Peli Motto, and Emily Swallow's Armorer.

The Mandalorian & Grogu plot speculation

Nothing has been revealed about The Mandalorian & Grogu plot just yet. The Mandalorian season 3 finale saw Din Djarin formally adopt Baby Yoda as his own, and the duo settled on Nevarro together. The stage seems set for more standalone adventures, but with the Ahsoka show returning Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Bridger to the main galaxy, Mando & Grogu could have big fish to fry. 

Plus, though Giancarlo Esposito's Moff Gideon was killed in the finale, there are some compelling theories that he could also return via clone-related shenanigans. It all remains to be seen for now. 

Will there be a Mandalorian season 4?

At the moment, it's unclear whether there will be a The Mandalorian season 4 or not. At first, it was reportedly still happening in addition to the movie, but another report soon cast doubt on that

Per a newsletter from The Hollywood Reporter, before the strikes shut down Hollywood last year, season 4 was written and ready to go (as Jon Favreau himself said back in February 2023). But, when Hollywood came to a standstill, Lucasfilm pivoted to a movie – leaving season 4's future in doubt. 

But, one of Din Djarin's physical performers, Brendan Wayne, said in November 2023 that the fourth season was being "ramped up." Whether he meant the movie or not is unclear for now.
