Director and producer Jon Favreau recently announced that the new Star Wars film will begin production ahead of schedule. Several trade sources have confirmed that the film targets a June start date. Instead of beginning filming on the series’ fourth season. Apparently, pre-production has been ramping up in preparation for the summer kickoff, although, as with any production, this schedule is subject to change.

The upcoming film will be written and directed by Jon Favreau, co-creator of the original series. In addition, Pedro Pascal will return to voice Din Djarin. He is the protagonist of The Mandalorian, alongside Grogu, his “adopted son” introduced in the series’ first episode.

It is not yet known if Pascal will appear on-screen in The Mandalorian & Grogu, a change from his role from the end of season two. While a fourth season of the series is still in the plans, Disney has yet to announce a premiere date due to production delays.

The return of other cast members, such as Katee Sackhoff, Emily Swallow, Amy Sedaris, Mercedes Varnado. Without Giancarlo Esposito, it remains unconfirmed.
