‘The Mandalorian & Grogu’ Movie Sets Production Start Date

Announced in early January 2024, the upcoming Star Wars film, “The Mandalorian & Grogu,” has set its production start date, according to ComicBook.com.

‘The Mandalorian & Grogu’ Production Begins This Summer

The Mandalorian & Grogu will star in their own movie.

Directed by series creator Jon Favreau, the film was previously said to enter production sometime this year. Thanks to a new listing on the Film & Television Industry Alliance’s production tracking service, we now know exactly when.

“The Mandalorian & Grogu” — the first Star Wars film since the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” in 2019 — will begin shooting on June 17, 2024 in Los Angeles, California. Per ComicBook.com the Disney+ series’ first three seasons were all primarily filmed in the L.A. area, including on soundstages at Manhattan Beach Studios with Industrial Light & Magic’s StageCraft technology and the Volume.

According to the Film & Television Industry Alliance posting, casting has still not been confirmed, and the description of the film is a general synopsis that could also be applied to the show in general:

The Mandalorian, a lone bounty hunter, is tasked with capturing Grogu, a mysterious and adorable creature. Instead, he forms a strong bond with Grogu and strives to protect him from various threats, exploring his evolving purpose in a post-Empire galaxy.

Favreau previously said he was working on a script for “The Mandalorian” season 4 back in 2022, though it’s unclear if this film will replace that season or be in addition to the next installment in the series.

Earlier today, Gina Carano filed a lawsuit against Disney and Lucasfilm over her firing from the series in 2021, ending her role as Cara Dune. X’s Elon Musk is funding the lawsuit.
