The Disney Plus spin-off will follow four children who become lost in the galaxy and try to find their way home.
The show was announced at the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Anaheim, Executive producer Jon Watts told the crowd:
“It’s the story about a group of kids, about 10 years old, from a tiny little planet who accidentally get lost in the Star Wars galaxy.
“It’s the story of their journey trying to find their way home,” he said, adding that the show stars children to give “a slightly different perspective on Star Wars” and to “see the galaxy through a different set of eyes”.
Ford added that while “it stars four kids”, it is “not a kids’ show”, with Skeleton Crew being set in the same period of time as The Mandalorian, The Book Of Boba Fett, the new Ahsoka series.
