New Star Wars Movie, Ahsoka Season 2 Announced

Story


In a bit of unexpected news, Lucasfilm has announced that a new Star Wars film has joined the production slate. Called “The Mandalorian & Grogu”, it will be directed by Jon Favreau who created and prolific writer on The Mandalorian TV series. Unlike other announcements, this one actual sounds like a plan is in place with filming expected to start later this year. No release date has been announced but Disney has had an untitled Star Wars film penciled in for December 19, 2025 that this film could take over.

“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.” Lucasfilm leader Katheleen 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.”

What this mean for The Mandalorian season 4 is unknown. In theory they could film a season four and the movie this year and hit that year end 2025 release date but really no information was given. My assumption is they will film the movie and decide on continuation of the series after. The other Star Wars movie technically still in the works is New Jedi Order with Daisy Ridley reprising her role of Rey but honestly I will be surprised if that doesn’t end up being abandoned considering how poorly setup the post Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker world was setup due to JJ Abrams inability to world build.

In addition to the film, Ahsoka season 2 has begun development so good news for those worried about a renewal. As for when get a chance to watch it, just assume at some point in 2025.
