Star Wars‘ upcoming Mandalorian and Grogu movie has received a huge California tax credit bump.

Deadline is reporting that The Mandalorian and Grogu has gotten one of the highest tax credits ever for the state of California. The film is also the first in the Star Wars series to be filmed in California.

The exact total of conditional tax credits for the film is $21,755,000. For reference, this is higher than Captain Marvel's ($20.8 million) and The Movie Critic's ($20.2 million). Deadline's report also estimates that 500 crew members, 54 cast members, and 3,500 background actors will be hired with this tax credit for 92 days. They also add that an expected $166,438,000 in “qualified expenditures and below-the-line wages.”

However, in a disappointing update, it remains unclear if Pedro Pascal will reprise the title role in the film. He is also set to star in Fantastic Four and The Last of Us Season 2 and has a full plate ahead.
