Jude Law is going to star in a new “Star Wars” series coming to Disney+. The announcement was made at the “Star Wars” Celebration in Anaheim, CA. The show was previously reported as being in the works earlier in May as part of a larger “Star Wars” story.
The description they gave was, “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. It’s created and executive-produced by director Jon Watts and writer Chris Ford, who made ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ for Marvel. A casting notice has called for four children, around 11 to 12 years old. Inside Lucasfilm, the show is being described as a galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s.”
It was informally referred to as “Grammar Rodeo” at that time, a reference to an episode of “The Simpsons” in which Bart and three of his classmates take a roadtrip together by renting a car with a fake ID.
Watts and Ford will executive produce “Skeleton Crew” along with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. Exact details on who Law will be playing in the series remain under wraps.
