Coming off from Everything Everywhere All at Once‘s landslide win at the 2023 Academy Awards, One Take News brings word that award-winning filmmaking duo Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert are part of the directing lineup for Lucasfilm’s upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: Skeleton Crew.
It’s still unclear if the Daniels have directed one or multiple episodes, as further details about the project’s plot and character continue to be kept under wraps. Production on Skeleton Crew wrapped last January. Currently, Oscar nominee Jude Law is the only cast member announced for the series, which is scheduled for a 2023 release.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is created and executive produced by Jon Watts and scribe Christopher Ford, who previously worked together on Spider-Man: Homecoming. The series will take place during the events after Return of the Jedi. Inspired by the classic Amblin films of the 80s, the project previously had the working title of Grammar Rodeo, which is a nod to a Simpsons episode featuring Bart running away for a week with a stolen car.
The series is also executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Kathleen Kennedy. Law will be joined by a young cast consisting of children between 11 and 12. There are currently no announcements yet regarding the identity of the rest of the leading cast.
