Oscar-winning filmmakers Behind ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ to Direct Episode of Star Wars Skeleton Crew for Disney+

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, known as “The Daniels” were tapped to direct an episode of the upcoming Star Wars series Skeleton Crew for Disney+. “Daniels” are newly minted Oscar winners for their masterpiece Everything Everywhere All at Once. The Hollywood Reporter broke this news earlier in the week.

Skeleton Crew started filming over the summer but has been shrouded in mystery regarding the show’s details and list of directors. Lucasfilm did not comment on reports of Daniel’s work on the show.

Skeleton Crew stars Jude Law and is created by Jon Watts, best known for his work on Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy of films. Watts approached Daniels before “Everything’s” opening, as the filming for Skeleton Crew was done before their film’s theatrical release. Skeleton Crew is executive produced by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.

After the news had broke, Kwan wrote in an Instagram story, “We love Jon, we love Star Wars, love learning new tech, we love meeting new cast and crew, and we needed the days to keep our healthcare (!!!), so it was an easy yes.” Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) took home three Oscars, including best original screenplay, best director, and best picture.
