'Star Wars' Live Action Series In the Works From Jon Favreau!

Jon Favreau is set to executive produce and write a live action Star Wars series!

“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. I can’t wait to embark upon this exciting adventure,” Jon said in a statement about the opportunity.

“I couldn’t be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform,” Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy added. “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 series will debut on Disney’s new direct-to-consumer platform, and does not yet have a title or a release date. Stay tuned!
