“Skeleton Crew” was just announced last May at Star Wars Celebration. The show will star Jude law, will be directed by Jon Watts, and comes from executive producers Jon Watts, Christopher Ford, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.
The show takes place during the post–’Return of the Jedi’ reconstruction that follows the fall of the Empire, the same as ‘The Mandalorian,’ but its plot remains a secret. Inside Lucasfilm, the show is being described as a galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s.
Sources tell me that Skeleton Crew started filming slightly later than planned… the initial plan was to still wrap filming by the end of this year. Since then things have changed and the series is now aiming to wrap by March. I haven’t heard a hard date, and it’s entirely possible filming could continue past March if issues behind the scenes continue, but as of now, I’ve heard the series is looking to conclude filming by March.
The series is expected to release on Disney+ in 2023.
