Sigourney Weaver Joins the Cast of The Mandalorian and Grogu

Reports have confirmed that Weaver is set to join The Mandalorian and Grogu.

There are no details yet regarding the role that the Oscar nominee will portray in the Star Wars movie.

This marks the first major casting news for The Mandalorian and Grogu aside from Pedro Pascal, who is confirmed to star in the film although it is unknown yet whether he will physically shoot some scenes on set.

While we don't know yet which character Weaver will play in the film, this is exciting casting news since she is a well-known figure in the science-fiction genre thanks to starring in the Alien, Avatar, and Ghostbusters franchises.

Now, it is looking like Weaver will conquer another well-known science-fiction franchise, and, this time around, she will be part of arguably the biggest and most iconic property in the genre.

It is likely that we will be getting more details about Weaver's role in the film soon as well as hear more news about which other actors are set to join Din Djarin and Grogu's big-screen adventure.

The Mandalorian and Grogu is scheduled for release in theaters on May 22, 2026.
