From The Wrap
Jon Favreau is set to write and executive produce a live-action “Star Wars” series for Disney’s new streaming platform.
“I couldn’t be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “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.”
“If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn’t have believed you,” Favreau added. “I can’t wait to embark upon this exciting adventure.”
The untitled “Star Wars” live-action series does not yet have a release date.
