“Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law”
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is an upcoming American television series directed by Jon Watts and Christopher Ford for the streaming service Disney+. It is part of the Star Wars franchise, taking place in the same timeframe as The Mandalorian and its related spin-offs after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). Skeleton Crew tells a coming-of-age story. Watts approached Lucasfilm about an Amblin Entertainment-style coming-of-age story set in the Star Wars universe. The two were introduced to one another by Watts’ former mentor, Guillermo del Toro. In preparing for the project, Watts wrote a treatment for the series and met with Lucasfilm Executive Vice President of creator development Sara Jaffe to help refine it.

What’s The Plotting Of “Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law”?
Jude Law will star in the upcoming Disney+ streaming series “Star Wars: Skeleton Crew,” TheWrap has learned. Law will lead an ensemble cast in the as-yet-untitled live-action series.
Law will play Ezra Bridger, the cocky Jedi Padawan and Rebel Alliance spies who often went behind enemy lines to get information vital to the Resistance effort. He was tasked with finding out what became of the Empire’s super weapon — a space station called the Death Star.
Kyriana Kratter will play Yudu, an inventive teenager from a remote planet who is working as Ezra Bridger’s assistant while they are on an undercover mission.
Pierce Conners will play Zare Leonis, a cadet at the elite Imperial Academy on Lothal who has a strong connection to the Force.
Cameron Cuffe will play M-OC, an experimental Imperial droid with a daunting physical presence.
Who’s Directing “Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law”?
Jon Watts is directing Star Wars: Skeleton Crew for Lucasfilm. Watts directed Spider-Man: Homecoming and its sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures. He also directed Cop Car, which he adapted from his short film of the same name. Watts is repped by Anonymous Content and Schreck Rose.
What’s exciting About “Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law”?
This is interesting because, after The Mandalorian, there’s a new Star Wars show on the way. And it’s a live-action series.
Additionally, Watts said that “it takes place after Return of the Jedi.” That implies that it takes place in the space between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, so we can assume that this is a New Republic-era story.
And the thing to notice is that he didn’t say whether or not this was “Before” or “After” Return of the Jedi.
It is possible that this is a story set after Return of the Jedi, in which case it would be set in the New Republic era (which begins roughly 3 years after Return of the Jedi) rather than the prior period (which took place a lot earlier).
Or it could be set “Before” Return of the Jedi, meaning that it’s a prequel story.
We still don’t know when this series will premiere.
What About The Release Date Of “Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law”?
Skeleton Crew will premiere in 2023. The show will be on Disney+.
What’s The Spoiler Status Of “Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law”?
Based on the way Watts finishes his sentences, it sounds like this is more of an ensemble story that focuses on the characters rather than on any one single character. That’s telling because, in previous Star Wars TV shows, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Solo: A Star Wars Story (the latter is directed by Ron Howard), they focused more on the main character than they did on other characters.
What About The Trailer Of “Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law”?
The reason why “Star Wars, Skeleton Crew, Jude Law” is so interesting is that the trailer was released for The Mandalorian just this week.
The trailer is set in the New Republic era (which is basically after Return of the Jedi) and it involves a Mandalorian. It even involves a pretty significant scene of Adi Gallia, which we saw in Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi at one point during her cameo appearance.
