The Mandalorian has returned to the front of Star Wars fans’ minds this week as Season 3 finally debuted on Disney+ on March 1. But Disney had more in store for fans of the bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), and Grogu (AKA Baby Yoda).

Just as the show’s latest episodes debuted on Disney’s streaming service, its leading characters debuted at two other Disney Theme Parks! Disney Parks confirmed that Din Djarin and Grogu have officially arrived at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Originally announced at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, in September 2022, Djarin and Grogu were confirmed to be joining the likes of Rey, Chewbacca, Kylo Ren, and his stormtroopers, as well as Boba Fett and Fenec Shand at Disneyland Park’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge themed land, and we at Disney Fanatic reported their first sightings. But it was never clear when fans could expect to see him at other Parks.

Now, it appears that the renegade bounty hunters have now arrived at the Black Spire Outpost in Central Florida.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is one of the few places at the Walt Disney World Resort where Guests can see their favorite characters out walking around freely, improvising interactions with the Guests as they go by, unlike the experience at the Disneyland Resort where characters are known to roam freely.

The Mandalorian and Grogu are also visiting Disneyland Paris Resort!

According to @DLPReport, “Set times (30min) have been released for #TheMandalorian and Grogu at Disneyland Paris: 11:30am/12:30pm/1:30pm/4pm/5pm until March 14.”

Disneyland Paris is expected to have a Star Wars land of its own at Walt Disney Studios Park near the Frozen land currently under construction.

Created by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, The Mandalorian and Grogu have quickly become two of the most popular Star Wars characters to come out of the franchise since Lucasfilm was bought by Disney.
