Lucasfilm announced today that Jon Favreau will serve as Executive Producer and writer for an upcoming live-action Star Wars series. There is no information on what the series will be about, or the time period it will be set in. What is known is this series will be available on Disney's upcoming direct-to-consumer platform.
Jon Favreau is no stranger to Star Wars. He voiced Pre Vizsla in the television series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, and will voice a character in the upcoming film SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.
I am extremely excited for this news. I've stated before that I wanted Jon to direct a Star Wars film, and this is just as good. Check out Lucasfilm's official press release here. What would you like his Star Wars series to be about? Let me know in the comments below.
