It’s been a while since we got an update on Star Wars series Skeleton Crew starring Jude Law, but with the Ahsoka series over, we now have a new synopsis for the show.
This has come out online via @SkeletonCrew_SW:

“In the first episode of ‘Skeleton crew’ we are introduced to four kids who make a mysterious discovery on their seemingly safe home planet and get lost in a strange and dangerous galaxy. Finding their way home, meeting unlikely allies and enemies, will be a greater adventure than they ever imagined.”
We don’t know much about the show officially, but the description does line up with the rumors that the series will follow a bunch of young kids on a ship with Law as their captain. It also goes without saying that Law’s character is said to be a former Jedi master, who has probably turned into a smuggler during the height of the Empire.
It’s also been said that Skeleton Crew will be embracing more kid-focused action-adventures, not unlike Stand By Me and The Goonies. If anything, this could very well be Disney’s own attempt at their own Stranger Things set in Star Wars.
So far, Law is the biggest name attached to the show, but the series has confirmed quite the roster of directors which include Jon Watts (Spider-Man: Homecoming to No Way Home), Jake Schreir (Beef), Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Bryce Dallas Howard (The Mandalorian), the Daniels (Everything, Everywhere, All at Once), and David Lowery (The Green Knight).
Hopefully we get an official update soon.
No official release date has been announced for Star Wars’ Skeleton Crew, but it is rumored to be releasing early 2024.
