Baby Yoda and Mando are stepping into the spotlight once again after the third season of the Disney Plus Hotstar series. The beloved pair is gearing up for even bigger adventures in the next phase of their journey.

Favreau's Star Wars saga, tinged with a western essence, follows the journey of the Mandalorian (played by Pedro Pascal), an exceptional bounty hunter assigned to retrieve precious cargo. This cargo turns out to be none other than the internet sensation, Grogu, affectionately dubbed Baby Yoda.

As the plot unfolds, Mando discovers a deep connection with Grogu and an innate responsibility to safeguard him. Grogu, in turn, showcases extraordinary, albeit curious and mischievous, powers, evolving into a valuable ally. The undeniable bond between the two leads them on a series of captivating adventures that have kept audiences enthralled.


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

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,” added Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.


"The Mandalorian & Grogu" is set to be the flagship of Lucasfilm's feature-development slate, paving the way for a new era in the Star Wars cinematic universe. Alongside films from Filoni, Mangold, and Obaid-Chinoy, this announcement hints at a diverse and dynamic future for Star Wars storytelling. While the exact release date remains unspecified, the anticipation is fueled by the knowledge that Lucasfilm has a Star Wars feature slated for December 19, 2025, promising a significant cinematic event for fans to look forward to.
