The upcoming Star Wars movie The Mandalorian and Grogu has set its filming location ahead of production later this year.

Several weeks ago, Lucasfilm announced that Din Djarin and Grogu will jump to the big screen for their next adventure with Jon Favreau directing the film and co-writing the script with Dave Filoni.

Now, the project has circled the main location where the shooting will mostly take place once they roll their cameras.

According to Deadline, the filming of The Mandalorian and Grogu movie will take place in California later this year.

It is set to be the first Star Wars movie that will mainly be shot in the Golden State. It is unknown yet whether it will also take place in Manhattan Beach Studio, where the show's first three seasons were mostly filmed.

The project was also granted $21,755,000 in tax credits by the California Film Commission, making it one of the biggest allocations in the program's history.

It is estimated that they will be hiring 500 crew members, 54 cast members, and 3,500 background players for 92 shooting days and generate a record-breaking $166,438,000 in qualified expenditures and below-the-line wages.

The report also noted that it is still unsure whether Pedro Pascal will be able to work on set since he will also be shooting Fantastic Four around the same time.

Considering that the show itself was filmed in California despite having numerous locations across the galaxy, it's not surprising to hear that the movie will also be shot in the Golden State as well.

It is very likely that they will be incorporating The Volume into their production technique again since they seemingly won't be doing multiple international shoots like all the Star Wars films in the past.

As we're now just a few months away from its planned production start, we will be hearing more news and updates regarding the project very soon.
