Star Wars: Skeleton Crew wraps filming

By Kieran Burt.

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew has wrapped filming, Deadline reports. 

Stunt coordinator George Cottle shared a video on Instagram to celebrate the moment.

“That’s a Wrap on Skeleton Crew!! Once again I was lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the most amazing stunt performers I have ever worked with!! I fell so lucky to work with you all! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication! So so excited for this one!” Cottle captioned the video.

Skeleton Crew will star Jude Law in an as of yet unnamed role. It will follow “a group of kids who are about ten years old who get lost in the Star Wars universe.”

It will take place at a similar time period to The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, meaning that it will be set around five years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi and about 25 years before Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. 

But just because it is following kids doesn’t mean it’s a kids show doesn’t mean it’s for kids, with fans being reassured that it will be accessible to adults too. This means it will fall into a similar vein as shows like Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Jon Watts serves as director for the show, with Christopher Ford writing. Watts is most known for directing the trilogy of Spider-Man films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni will executive produce the show. 

The series was announced in May 2022 at the Star Wars Celebrations Anaheim convention, which celebrates the franchise. 

Skeleton Crew so far does not have a release date, but will arrive on Disney+ sometime in 2023.
