THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU is likely to be the next STAR WARS movie released in theatres, and it will feature the big-screen debuts of two of the most popular new Star Wars characters to arrive in a long time.

Leaping off from the streaming series "The Mandalorian," this movie will continue the story of the armored title character and the little green Grogu, still affectionately known as Baby Yoda. We expect the movie to dramatically expand the scope of that already epic series. Here's everything you need to know about THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU.

What's the Mandalorian & Grogu Release Date?

There is no release date set for THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU right now. The first announcement about the movie says that it "will lead Lucasfilm’s ongoing feature-development slate," which could mean that it will be the first new STAR WARS movie to come to movie theaters out of four that are now planned.

In 2023, Lucasfilm set three dates for new Star Wars movies. The first is on May 22, 2026, so that could well be when THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU will be released. But that is not yet confirmed.

Is There a Trailer for The Mandalorian & Grogu?

As with the release date, there is no trailer for THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU. The movie has not filmed yet, so there's no footage to show. That means any of the many "trailer concepts" you might see are entirely fan-made using footage from the streaming series and other sources.

Who's in The Mandalorian & Grogu Cast?

No cast members are confirmed for THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU. While we expect that Pedro Pascal will return to play the title role, no official deal has been disclosed. We also hope to see actors such as Rosario Dawson, who plays Ahsoka Tano, reprise their roles as well. But we'll have to wait for news.

What's the Plot of The Mandalorian & Grogu?

As with so many other aspects of the movie, THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU plot has yet to be revealed. Will it follow the third season of "The Mandalorian," which aired in Spring 2023? Probably! But we don't know for certain.

Furthermore, we know that scripts were written for a fourth season of the streaming series prior to the dual strikes that shut down much film and TV production in 2023. Does THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU movie take the place of "The Mandalorian" season 4? We don't know!

Who Is Directing The Mandalorian & Grogu?

Jon Favreau is directing THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU. He created the series and has written most of the scripts for the show's three seasons. For the movie, Favreau is co-writing with Dave Filoni, who has been the architect of much of the Star Wars storytelling in various streaming series over the last few years.

Beyond those two names, Lucasfilm has yet to reveal more collaborators for the movie. Ludwig Göransson, for example, scored the show's first two seasons, with Joseph Shirley stepping in to score the third season. Will either of them score the movie? We'll find out!

If nothing else, we can reliably expect that THE MANDALORIAN & GROGU will offer visual spectacle on a large canvas, enabled by the most cutting-edge production techniques and effects that Lucasfilm and effects house Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) can offer.
