It was recently announced that The Mandalorian would be making his big screen debut in The Mandalorian & Grogu. However, it seems that season 4 of the Star Wars Disney Plus series was finished being written before it was turned into a feature film.
The Mandalorian seemed to stumble during season 3, with many fans wondering if the Disney Plus series had started to go downhill. All those fears seemed to vanish overnight when it was announced the character would lead his own Star Wars film with The Mandalorian & Grogu. While fans are excited to see their favorite duo in theaters, a new report suggests this came at the cost of a season 4 that was already entirely written during the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
It’s unclear why Lucasfilm would scrap The Mandalorian season 4 to focus on a feature film, but it seems in line with their mission to bring Star Wars back to the big screen. The franchise has seen its biggest successes on Disney Plus, so it’s understandable to want a more sustainable outlet for the universe’s biggest stories. Let’s just hope The Mandalorian & Grogu recaptures the magic fans have been craving from the series.
The Mandalorian’s Star Wars future
With its high-quality production, engaging storylines, and captivating characters, The Mandalorian has proven to be one of the best Disney Plus series to date. While the series hasn’t been officially renewed yet, Din Djarin and Grogu’s story is expected to continue on the big screen with their own feature film.
The Mandalorian features Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, Werner Herzog, Omid Abtahi, Taika Waititi, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Temuera Morrison and Katee Sackhoff, among others. The series was created by Jon Favreau and executive produced by Dave Filoni, with episodes directed by Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, Peyton Reed, Carl Weathers and Robert Rodriguez.
