A few months back, speculation buzzed about the continuation of Mando’s adventures in a feature film. Season 3 concluded with Moff Gideon apparently vanquished and Mando embracing Grogu as his ward and son, Din Grogu. Their apparent tranquility hints at the emergence of a new threat for Season 4.

Jon Favreau, the mastermind behind ‘The Mandalorian’ TV series, asserted that the script for Season 4 was already complete even before Season 3 concluded. However, recent indications suggest that the fourth season might not materialize after all.

Recently, confirmation emerged about an upcoming film centered on Mandalorian & Grogu. Directed by Jon Favreau and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Dave Filoni, this new project is set to commence filming in 2024.

While details about the movie remain scarce, industry insider Jeff Sneider suggests that Sigourney Weaver is in discussions to join the cast, though her role remains undisclosed at this time.

Before the movie’s announcement, Pedro Pascal declared his unavailability to physically reprise his role in ‘The Mandalorian’ due to commitments on ‘The Last of Us’ Season 2 and the upcoming ‘Gladiator’ film in 2024. He will only provide Mando’s voiceover, with the addition of the ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot.

It’s anticipated that Katee Sackhoff will portray Bo-Katan Kryze, Emily Swallow will reprise The Armorer, Lars Mikkelsen will embody Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee will inhabit Carson Teva. Speculation also swirls around Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Hera Syndulla and Eman Esfandi’s Ezra Bridger potentially appearing in Ahsoka season 2, which could have implications for the movie’s storyline.
