Jude Law is set to star in Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, an upcoming Disney+ series being developed by Jon Watts.
The announcement was made during the ongoing Star Wars Celebration 2022 event, with Watts (who directed the three most recent Spider-Man films for Marvel Studios) on hand to discuss the show and reveal its full name. The series had previously been code-named Grammar Rodeo (a reference to an episode of The Simpsons that sees Bart and his schoolmates steal a car and run away for a week) before its official unveiling today.

Alongside Watts, the series will be written by Christopher Ford, who also worked with Watts as the writer on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not too much is known about the series or who Jude Law will play as of now, but Watts and Ford described the series as “for kids, but not a kids show.” The series is expected to begin production this summer, with Star Wars mainstays Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni executive producing the series.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is just one of many series unveiled at Star Wars Celebration 2022, with the highly anticipated third season of The Mandalorian and the Rogue One prequel Andor also appearing during the opening day of the event.
