The Mandalorian TV show axed from Disney+, but for a very good reason

The Mandalorian Season 4 might never happen, but his and Grogu's Star Wars adventures are set to continue

There could be sad news for the fans of, arguably, the best TV show on Disney+ – it seems that we won't be getting The Mandalorian Season 4. It is now extremely unlikely that Disney and Lucasfilm will continue with the series.

However, that's because they've announced that Mando and Grogu (Baby Yoda) will be shifting to the big screen instead. Series writer and showrunner, Jon Favreau, will be directing an all-new Star Wars movie, The Mandalorian & Grogu.

Production will start later this year, so we could see it in theatres next summer. It'll likely then end up on the Disney+ streaming service several months later.

Joining Favreau as producers are the custodian of all things Star Wars and head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, as well as long-time The Mandalorian collaborator, Dave Filoni.

Filoni is also currently developing Ahsoka Season 2, which has been confirmed, too.

"Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have ushered into Star Wars two new and beloved characters, and this new story is a perfect fit for the big screen," said Kennedy.

"I have loved telling stories set in the rich world that George Lucas created," added Favreau.

"The prospect of bringing the Mandalorian and his apprentice Grogu to the big screen is extremely exciting."

There's no word yet on plot details or casting at this early stage. However, we'd be very surprised if Pedro Pascal doesn't return as the eponymous lead. There will surely also be a cameo at the very least for Katee Sackhoff, who is superb as Bo-Katan Kryze in the series.

How to watch The Mandalorian

You can watch all three seasons of The Mandalorian on Disney+ to prepare for the movie.

We also advise that you catch The Book of Boba Fett, as Mando appears in that series too. And check out Ashoka Season 1, which is a spin-off of The Mandalorian, as well as a continuation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

How much is Disney+?

Disney+ subscriptions are available across three price plans.

There is a Standard with Ads service for £4.99 per month. This gives you access to all content, but you will see adverts, as the name suggests. All video is shown at a maximum of 1080p and 5.1 surround sound. You cannot download shows for offline viewing and are limited to two simultaneous viewings.

The Standard service is £7.99 per month (£79.90 for 12-months) and is also capped at 1080p, 5.1 and two simultaneous streams. However, there are no ads and you can download videos to devices to watch while travelling.

Finally the Premium tier is £10.99 per month (£109.90 for 12-months) and ups the video quality to a maximum of 4K HDR and with Dolby Atmos sound. You also get to stream on four devices simultaneously.

Disney+ subscribers in the US only get two plans – one with ads for $7.99 per month, one without (and 4K HDR / Dolby Atmos) for $13.99 per month.
