The upcoming Star Wars series Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is recruiting director David Lowery into its fold, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
THR’s report notes that Lowery (The Green Knight, Peter & Wendy) is one of the many directors set to lend their filmmaking prowess to the series. The show has already wrapped production, but news of the directors working on the series is still making its way out. Previously, it was revealed that The Daniels, the duo behind Everything Everywhere All at Once, would also be working on an episode of the project.
Not too much is known about Skeleton Crew, but it does star Jude Law and will center on “a group of kids lots in the galaxy and trying to find their way home.” The project is set in the New Republic era of Star Wars, and as a result, will likely feature a litany of new characters to the franchise.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is created and executive produced by Jon Watts and scribe Christopher Ford, who previously worked together on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Inspired by the classic Amblin films of the ’80s, the project previously had the working title of Grammar Rodeo, which is a nod to an episode of The Simpsons that features Bart running away for a week with a stolen car.
The series is also executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Kathleen Kennedy. Production on Skeleton Crew wrapped in January. Currently, Oscar nominee Jude Law is the only cast member announced for the series. He will be joined by a young cast consisting of children between 11 and 12.
