The Mandalorian & Grogu is a Star Wars movie scheduled to enter production in 2024. Directed by Jon Favreau and produced by Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, and Dave Filoni, it will focus on the adventures of Din Djarin and Din Grogu. The film was announced on January 9 that year on StarWars.com with a conceptual sketch by veteran illustrator Ryan Church, along with an announcement of a second season of the television series Ahsoka.[1]

On May 7, 2019, Disney revealed their future movie release schedule, including a set of three untitled new Star Wars films, one of which had a scheduled release date of December 20, 2024.[3] The Star Wars Show also reported on the news on May 15.[4] On July 23, 2020, after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the film was delayed to December 19, 2025.[5] After the start of the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, Disney shifted their theatrical film release slate, with the film being pushed to its current release date of May 22, 2026.[2] A film directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy occupied this release slot until The Mandalorian & Grogu was announced.[6] Star Wars Insider 224 revealed the film logo was the same as the one for The Mandalorian Season Three.[7]
