Writer, director and executive producer Jon Favreau has signed with Disney to be the writer and executive producer of a live-action Star Wars series for Disney’s upcoming streaming service.
This comes as good news for fans as a previously attempted live action series, Star Wars: Underworld, seems to have been put on the shelf.
Favreau had a role in the making of Star Wars: The Clone Wars as well as the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story. He has also directed Iron Man and Iron Man 2 as well as Disney’s live action remake of The Jungle Book.
“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,” Favreau said.
Jon Favreau’s live action Star Wars series does not yet have a name or release date.
