Later this year, a brand new Star Wars live-action series called “Skeleton Crew” arrives on Disney+. The show follows the journey of four kids who make a mysterious discovery on their seemingly safe home planet, and then get lost in a strange and dangerous galaxy. Finding their way home—and meeting unlikely allies and enemies—will be a greater adventure than they ever imagined.
This new series stars Jude Law, along with Ravi Cabot-Conyers, Kyriana Kratter, Robert Timothy Smith, Tunde Adebimpe and Kerry Condon. Jon Watts and Christopher Ford are the showrunners and executive producers, along with Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Chris Buongiomo, Gilchrist and Carrie Beck also serve as co-executive producers. John Bartnicki and Susan McNamara are producers. Directors include Watts, David Lowery, the Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), Jake Schreier, Bryce Dallas Howard and Lee Isaac Chung.
According to a new listing with the Writer’s Guild Of America, the upcoming Disney+ series, “Skeleton Crew”, is going to consist of eight episodes, which is in line with other Star Wars shows, “The Mandalorian” and the upcoming “Ahsaoka” show. The show also lists the episodes as being 60 minutes long. However, it’s important to note that many other Disney+ shows, including “The Mandalorian” and “Moon Knight”, were also listed at 60 minutes, but weren’t actually that long.
The listing also confirms that the showrunners, Christopher Ford and Jon Watts, have written six of the eight episodes, with Myung Joh Wesner writing episodes five and six.
Much like with other Star Wars Disney+ shows, different directors are tackling the show, with Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheiner (Everything Everywhere All At Once), Bryce Dallas Howard (The Mandalorian), Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), David Lowery (The Green Knight), and Jake Schreier (Thunderbolts) all taking a stab at the director’s chair.
