Now there is news about who could join Pascal in the cast. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Sigourney Weaver is in talks to join the cast of this next film Star Wars movie. Weaver is a legend when it comes to science fiction franchises. She has appeared in the Ghostbusters films, Avatar movies, and even Alien movies to name just a few. She hasn’t visited a galaxy far away yet. However, if the conversations go well, this could change.

The Mandalorian originally debuted in 2019 on Disney+. It followed the story of a bounty hunter and a young character commonly referred to as Baby Yoda. It turns out there were some pretty important connections to the larger one Star Wars universe. While the show started in a fairly concentrated part of the Star Wars universe, it has expanded quite a bit over the course of three seasons. It has also led to spin-offs, including Boba Fett’s Book And Ahsokawith a second season currently in development.

It is expected that The Mandalorian and Grogu will film later this year. The film will then be released in theaters on May 22, 2026. The film continues the story from which the third season started The Mandalorian stopped. Now Din Djarin will work for the New Republic. It wouldn’t be surprising if other members of the series’ cast join the film. It is also expected that this will pit the New Republic against Grand Admiral Thrawn and the Imperial Shadow Council.
