MCU Spider-Man trilogy director Jon Watts recently exited Marvel Studios’ upcoming Fantastic Four reboot fueled by a desire to focus his efforts outside of the superhero genre for a while. It seems Watts has found his escape in a galaxy far, far away, as it was announced today that the director will be creating a Star Wars series alongside Jon Favreau.

The series is currently under the working title Grammar Rodeo, a reference to a famous episode of The Simpson’s where Bart and his friends use a fake license to rent a car and run away for a week, using a made-up educational event (a grammar rodeo) as a cover. The series reportedly takes place after Return of the Jedi, in an era centered around the reconstruction of the galaxy following the fall of the Empire.

The series is also being described as a coming-of-age adventure story reminiscent of Amblin films from the ’80s. Outside of these very broad details, the exact plot of the series is being kept under wraps for now.

She’s been gaming since an early age, a trend that has continued into adulthood, and her most said phrase in regards to her favorite characters is “I could fix him/her.” Hasn’t stopped crying about Arthur Morgan since 2018 (with no plans to anytime soon) and thinks everyone should be nicer to Gale of Waterdeep. At her core, she's really just an aspiring vampire juice box. Especially nerdy about: video games, Star Wars, D&D, Spider-Man, and horror (all of it). Based in Denver, CO.
