What Is Going On With The Mandalorian Season 4

Much like the on Rey: New Jedi Order movie, off New Jedi Order movie, on again New Jedi Order movie, The Mandalorian is seeing a pattern that is similar. The Mandalorian Season 4 was said to be six episodes with Jon Favreau’s Mandalorian movie being the season finale. It is now being circulated that The Mandalorian is moving to the big screen a move that could be permanent.

The plan was seemingly solid, a six episode Season 4 with a movie to help push the story ahead. Then it was said that Jon Favreau’s Mando-verse movie would come out first pushing Season 4 back coupled with the fact Dave Filoni is also going to make a Mandalorian film. Scripts had already been written before the writers strike of 2023. A time in which Disney took to reevaluate future Star Wars projects.

Needing to get Star Wars back into theaters it seems Disney will use Favreau’s film with the widely popular Star Wars characters Din Djarin (The Mandalorian) and Grogu and hope it is enough to get back in the Star Wars fan base’s good grace’s given the lackluster films Disney/ Lucasfilm has put up with the exception of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Also known is Dave Filoni is co-writing The Mandalorian and Grogu film with Favreau. With the movie taking precedence over the next Season it feels like this could be permanent if the film find traction at the box office. If that happens Season 4 as formatted for T.V. would never happen and The Mandalorian will be exclusively released in theaters.

Is it a gamble for Disney/ Lucasfilm? Yes, anytime to take a successful commodity and essentially rebrand or reformat there is risk involved. But, the group involved feel by rolling the dice they could hit paydirt.

This is a time for Disney/ Lucasfilm to show they can make good Star Wars movies and gain back some fans who will surely show up if for no other reason they are hooked on The Mandalorian.
