Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that The Mandalorian & Grogu the first film of the new film will be Star wars slate, which means it will likely hit theaters in 2026.
Disney currently has two Star wars films on the schedule for that year: May 22, 2026 and December 18, 2026. Bob Iger’s comments seem to reflect that The Mandalorian & Grogu it will fill that first slot, but like this Star wars we are talking, anything could happen. We’ve seen more than a few release dates moved around.
The Mandalorian & Grogu directed by Jon Favreau, who also produces alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Dave Filoni. Production is expected to begin later this year. “I have enjoyed telling stories set in the rich world created by George Lucas,” Favreau said. “The prospect of bringing the Mandalorian and his apprentice Grogu to the big screen is incredibly exciting.” said Caitlin Kennedy, “Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have introduced two new and beloved characters to Star Wars, and this new story is a perfect fit for the big screen.“
apart from The Mandalorian film, we also have Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s emailA quick Skywalker level update a movie about Rey (Daisy Ridley) rebuilding the Jedi Order. The film is likely to fill the December 18, 2024 slot. Dave Filoni is also developing a New Republic film, which will tie together the stories featured in The Mandalorian, Achsokaand The Boba Fett book.
The next project will be directed by James Mangold (Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny) and takes place 25,000 years before the Skywalker Saga and the first Jedi explore and discover the Force. “Jim was something [Mangold] immediately, and I think it’s a great compliment to what we’re doing by moving into the future with Rey, and then understanding a little more where she came from all this,” explained Kennedy. “Because it will be at the heart of the creation of the new Jedi Order, so it could be very cool to find out where that could have started with the beginning of the Jedi.“
