It’s been a few months since the first details for Jon Watts’ Skeleton Crew series were revealed. While we expect an update tomorrow at Lucasfilm’s presentation at D23, a new rumor suggests that the series has a lot more stars than the previously announced Jude Law now.
According to Jordan Maison over at Cinelinx – who was also the first to report on Eman Esfandi’s casting as Ezra Bridger in the upcoming Ahsoka series – Disney alums Kyriana Kratter and Ravi Cabot-Conyers will lead the titular crew.
Now, Kratter is probably most known for her role as stint on the Jessie spin-off Bunk’d. She played a character by the name of Nadine. While Cabot Conyers may not look familiar, many will certainly recognize his voice as he played Antonio in Disney’s Academy Award-winning film Encanto.
Described by some as a story in the vein of Stranger Things set after the events of Return of the Jedi, in the New Republic era, the series will reportedly revolve around a group of kids lost in the Star Wars galaxy trying to find their way home. It is being described as a “galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s”.
Production is believed to have already taken place this past Summer.
