A prestigious addition to the Star Wars universe?

This time, today's news comes to us from The Hollywood Reporterone of the most reliable sources in the world of cinema. According to the American media, actress Sigourney Weaver is in discussions to join the cast of The Mandalorian & Grogu. And hey, we shouldn't have to introduce the 74-year-old actress today, but for the youngest, we remind you that she is known for having played Ellen Ripley in the Alien saga, but also in the two Avatars of James Cameron. Suffice to say that she is a big name in science fiction and that this could be a prestigious addition to the Star Wars universe.

The Mandalorian & Grogu, Mandoverse crossover

If you haven't followed Star Wars news in recent years, a little reminder is coming. The Mandalorian & Grogu is therefore the next film in the saga to be released in cinemas in May 2026, and it will not be Rogue Squadron the broadcast of which has been postponed multiple times in recent years. However, before going to the cinemas, we will have to do a little catching up. As its name suggests, The Mandalorian & Grogu follows the three seasons of The Mandalorian broadcast on Disney+ since the end of 2019… but that's not all.

Over time, the part of the Star Wars universe developed by The Mandalorian became so popular that it gave birth to its own sub-universe which takes place between Episodes VI and VII. We call all these series the Mandoverse and we also find the mini-series Ahsoka, The Book of Boba Fett and soon Skeleton Crew with Jude Law. All these intrigues will culminate in the film The Mandalorian & Grogu which serves as a major crossover to this whole universe, but no conclusion. A second feature film is planned to provide a denouement to all this, with Grand Admiral Thrawn as the main antagonist. In any case, see you in May 2026 to discover this epic conclusion.
