Spider-Man: No Means Residence director Jon Watts, with Spider-Man: Homecoming author Chris Ford, is ready to executive-produce a brand new Star Wars collection for Disney+ — and the small print, whereas few, are tantalizing.
As confirmed in a must-read Vanity Fair deep-dive into the way forward for Star Wars collection and movies, Watts and Ford are making a collection beneath the code title “Grammar Rodeo” (a nod to a Simpsons episode by which Bart and his friends deceive their of us about attending a made-up academic occasion). Casting is underway now for a set of tweenage children, and the collection — set in the course of the submit–Return of the Jedi reconstruction, similar as The Mandalorian — is described as “a galactic model of basic Amblin coming-of-age journey movies of the ’80s.”
The identical, meaty Vainness Truthful piece sprinkled within the present timetables for identified Star Wars collection — Andor, starring Rogue One‘s Diego Luna, is earmarked for a late summer season debut; The Mandalorian Season 3 will hit screens in late 2022 or early 2023; and Ahsoka, led by Mando’s Rosario Dawson, is on monitor for a 2023 launch.
Additionally it is famous that casting is at present underway for the perviously introduced The Acolyte, from Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland and reportedly starring Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give). That thriller thriller, set about 100 years previous to Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, will ask such questions as, “How did we get to some extent the place a Sith lord can infiltrate the Senate and not one of the Jedi choose up on it? Like, what went incorrect?”
All of this information comes forward of Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s extremely anticipated premiere, subsequent Friday, Could 27 (adopted by weekly Wednesday releases).
