According to One Take News, the Daniels are working on the Disney+ Star Wars series Skeleton Crew. The series began filming over the summer and wrapped earlier this year with most details being kept under wraps, which typically includes who directs episodes of their Star Wars series. The complete list of helmers of The Mandalorian season three, for example, was not revealed until a trailer drop two months ahead of the premiere.
As of now, it is currently unknown if the Daniels are directing one episode or multiple. Star Wars Celebration is next month and further details on the series are expected.
Jude Law is set to lead the series, additional casting is being kept under wraps. Skeleton Crew is created and written by Christopher Ford, who will also executive produce with Jon Watts, who is set to also direct an undisclosed amount of episodes. The series will be set after the events of Return of the Jedi, and 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. It is being described as a “galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s”.
