“Star Wars” has an untitled live-action TV series coming out. And Jon Favreau is at the helm.
Disney + Lucasfilm camp has hit the interweb with some new Star Wars. This time it’s in relation to the fabled live-action Television series… but not that one. A different, untitled series, we thinks.
Disney announced that producer and actor Jon Favreau is slated to executive produce and write a live-action Star Wars series. The series will appear on Disney’s streaming service.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy had this to say about the news:
I couldn’t be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform. Jon brings the perfect mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe. This series will allow Jon the chance to work with a diverse group of writers and directors and give Lucasfilm the opportunity to build a robust talent base.
The Star Wars live-action series currently does not have a title or a release date. More as things develop.
