Directed by Jon Watts with Christopher Ford as a writer, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is set to take place in the same timeline as The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. Watts said the new series is about “a group of kids who are about ten years old who get lost in the Star Wars universe.” The director also noted that although the show will have four kids as its stars, “it’s not a kids show.”

Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are also attached of executive producers of Skeleton Crew.

What is Skeleton Crew about?

In what little press the series has received so far, it’s said the show will be similar to The Goonies or Stand By Me.

“To have this young, Amblin-feeling movie with young people, who grew up in the Star Wars world and are exposed to adventure,” Favreau shared of Skeleton Crew during a conversation for Entertainment Weekly. “The puppets, the costumes, the visuals, the world that’s being expanded upon. And now I get to write the next season of Mandalorian with all these new characters and new locations and new creatures … There’s this cohesive group of stories that are being told thanks to all these filmmakers that are contributing.”

Is Skeleton Crew going to crossover with The Mandalorian?

Shortly after his previous comments, Favreau added the series could potentially cross over with other shows like The Mandalorian and Ahsoka.

  • Tom Hanks said nobody talks about the 2002 comic book movie he starred in.

  • The “Elvis” and “Pinocchio” actor starred in “Road to Perdition” from director Sam Mendes.

  • Jude Law and Daniel Craig also appeared in the crime drama.

Tom Hanks is one of the most beloved American actors to grace the screen since the 1980s, and has a number of fan-favorite roles under his belt like “Forrest Gump,” Woody in “Toy Story,” and Paul Edgecomb in “The Green Mile.”

But the 66-year-old star recently said that “no one” talks about Sam Mendes’ “Road to Perdition,” which arrived in theaters back in 2002.

Hanks appeared on the “ReelBlend” podcast to discuss his lengthy career when he discussed “Road to Perdition,” which is based on the 1998 graphic novel by Max Allan Collins. Hanks plays vicious mob enforcer Michael Sullivan, who goes on the run with his young son after the rest of his family is killed by another gangster.

Hanks said: “For one reason or another, no one references ‘Road to Perdition,’ and that was an incredibly important movie for me to go through.”

The actor added that the film boasts some great talent, including his costars Jude Law and Daniel Craig, as well as Oscar-winning cinematographer Conrad L. Hall.

He said: “It was shot by Conrad Hall, and you have me in it, ‘Don Moustache’ with a hat on it, but you also have two guys who turned out to be two of the biggest motion picture presences in the history of the industry with Jude Law and [Daniel] Craig. And I killed both of them…”
