Jude Law to Star in new Star Wars series Skeleton Crew

Actor Jude Law is joining the Star Wars universe! He’s been cast in the recently announced Skeleton Crew Disney+ series.

A recent Vanity Fair story on the state of Star Wars confirmed the existence of the Watts series, but we only knew its code name Grammar Rodeo until now. The show takes place during the post–Return of the Jedi reconstruction that follows the fall of the Empire, the same as The Mandalorian.

The story of Skeleton Crew is set in the New Republic era, and tells of a group of kids lost in the Star Wars galaxy trying to find their way home.

The series is due to shoot this summer with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni executive producing.  Law’s character details remain concealed.

It’ll be overseen by director Jon Watts and writer Chris Ford, who made Spider-Man: Homecoming for Marvel. A casting notice has called for four children, around 11 to 12 years old. Inside Lucasfilm, the show is being described as a galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s.

No other details have been unveiled on the plot of the series. However, given the ages of the casting notice, there is a possibility this Star Wars series might be targeting a younger audience.
