Jude law has joined the exalted (and growing) list of stars fronting their own Star Wars series on Disney+. At yesterday’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, Lucasfilm shared a host of surprise show reveals, including first looks at new Disney+ series Andor and Willow, a sneak peek at Season 3 of The Mandalorian, and the announcement of Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, a new series starring Jude Law and executive produced by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew will launch on Disney+ in 2023.
Watts recently helmed the blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures; he also just bowed out (reportedly amicably) of directing the Fantastic Four reboot for Marvel. At least we know what he’s up to now. Ford wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming. We also know what he’s up to now as well.
Dan Sarto is Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Animation World Network.
