The first moving images and new information about the unusual “Star Wars” series “Skeleton Crew” were finally available at the Star Wars Celebration that is currently taking place. Now we also know who will direct the series.
This series is eagerly awaited and on Friday, as part of the ongoing Star Wars Celebration in London, some fans were able to take a look at the first moving images of the upcoming “Star Wars” series “Skeleton Crew” – including Wikitexte editor Annemarie Havran.
The first trailer for “Skeleton Crew”, which has so far only been shown exclusively to visitors of the Star Wars Celebration, introduces the new young heroes of the series: Ravi Cabot-Conyers, Kyriana Crater and Robert Timothy Smith will be together with Jude Law (“Sherlock Holmes”) go on adventures in distant galaxies. In the first trailer, Law appears as a mentor trying to somehow get his teenage companions back home to their parents.
In addition, the first trailer also tells us an exciting detail about Jude Law’s character, because it seems that he will play a Jedi. The first moving images show Law using the Force to break out of prison (however, the trailer does not reveal how he got into this situation in the first place).
True franchise fans can find more references in the trailer. So we get to see a Teek. This headstrong furry creature looks like a cross between a rodent and a rabbit and lives in the forests of Endor. This nimble species made its debut in the TV movie Ewoks: Battle for Endor. In addition to Teek, Vane (Marti Matulis) also appears in the trailer. The chaos-loving Nikto-Pirat fans should know from the third season of “The Mandalorian”.
“Star Wars” meets Spielberg
Nikto pirates, fantastic creatures, space adventures: All of these elements in the first trailer have an almost Spielbergesque quality and evoke memories of films like “ET”, “The Goonies” or “Hook”.
Incidentally, the squad of committed directors also gives hope for a real creative firework display. At the Star Wars Celebration it was announced that in addition to experimental expert and “The Green Knight” director David Lowery, Oscar-winning duo Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (“Everything Everywhere All At Once”) won for at least one episode could become. The directorial squad is completed by Jake Schreier (“Beef”), Bryce Dallas Howard and Lee Isaac Chung, who have also directed episodes of “The Mandalorian”.
A specific release date for “Skeleton Crew” has not yet been announced. The series is currently in post-production and is slated for release on Disney+ in 2023.
