The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that local authorities are investigating a theft at the Manhattan Beach studio currently hosting numerous projects, including Jon Favreau’s Star Wars series titled The Mandalorian.
Sgt. Tim Zins, a spokesman for the Manhattan Beach police, stated that police were called about the “grand theft” around 11 a.m. on Thursday in the 1600 block of Rosecrans Avenue. While authorities were unable to confirm what was stolen, the outlet’s knowledgeable sources said items from the set of The Mandalorian were taken, though nothing of substance to Star Was series.
A spokeswoman for Lucasfilm reportedly declined to comment.
The case remains under investigation.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The Mandalorian will be written by Jon Favreau, who serves as an executive producer alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is also on board as a co-executive producer.
Dave Filoni will direct the first episode of the series and additional episodes will be helmed by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, Dopedirector Rick Famuyiwa, and Jessica Jones episode director Deborah Chow.
The Mandalorian will be available exclusively on the upcoming Disney streaming service.
