As part of Star Wars Celebration in London, the cast for the upcoming Jude Law-led series, Skeleton Crew, has been announced. Ravi Cabot-Conyers, Kyriana Kratter, and Robert Timothy Smith will star alongside Law.
The series is created and executive produced by Jon Watts and Chris Ford. The pair will produce alongside Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew stars Law in the series set in The Mandalorian timeline (post-Return of the Jedi), in an era centered around the reconstruction of the galaxy following the fall of the Empire. The series is 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. The series was initially working under the title Grammar Rodeo, an iconic 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 is set to arrive on Disney+ sometime in 2023. Stay tuned with Nerds & Beyond for updates.
