LUCASFILM // MARCH 8, 2018

JON FAVREAU TO EXECUTIVE PRODUCE AND WRITE LIVE-ACTION STAR WARS SERIES
THE DIRECTOR OF IRON MAN AND THE JUNGLE BOOK WILL HELM THE SERIES FOR DISNEY’S NEW DIRECT-TO-CONSUMER PLATFORM.


Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau has signed on to executive produce and write a live-action Star Wars series for Disney’s new direct-to-consumer platform. Favreau is no stranger to the Star Wars galaxy having played roles in both the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.

“I couldn’t be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “Jon brings the perfect mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe. This series will allow Jon the chance to work with a diverse group of writers and directors and give Lucasfilm the opportunity to build a robust talent base.”

Favreau is thrilled to be returning to the Star Wars galaxy: “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.”

Disney’s collaborations with Favreau extend back a decade, when he helped launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe as director of Iron Man and Iron Man 2 and as an executive producer of the Iron Man and Avengers films for Marvel Studios. For Disney, he directed and produced the massively successful The Jungle Book, which won an Academy Award for its groundbreaking visual effects. He is currently in production on Disney’s highly anticipated reimagining of The Lion King, set for release in 2019.

The untitled Star Wars live-action series does not yet have a release date.

Is this THE live action series, or another one?

I doubt it's Star Wars: Underworld, the show GL was writing scripts for. Disney seems to have junked all his unused ideas.

The problem he had still remains, to do it justice any live action show is gonna need a large budget per episode, so large even GL and R McCallum thought it would cost too much.

The plan to keep the budgets down is to film on the movie sets. Reuse costumes etc. The Elstree studio is basically going to become a star wars factory. ILM have already set up a studio down there just to do Star Wars.

I don't think they should bother, Kathleen Kennedy clearly doesn't get what made Star Wars what it is and based on the Last Jedi shouldn't be allowed near it anymore.

Having said that, the Rebels series was fairly ok, but maybe she had nothing to do with that.

The Mandalorian

Quote:
Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun!

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.


There's some speculation (on my part, at least!) that Dave Filoni's involvement could mean that the Mandalorian story arcs set up in Clone Wars and Rebels could play some part in this. Could we get the further adventures of Sabine Wren?

I actually finally think I am the "meh" point with Star Wars. This does little to excite me but I will wait to see a trailer. I wrote Rogue One off and actually really liked the.

I hear a lot of people saying that, but I'm pretty much more excited about Star Wars than ever. It all working for me.

i wonder if ahsoka would be in this? binged the entirety of rebels in a few days last week then rewatched (binged) clone wars this week and she's still my fav character.

if filoni is involved then i have hopes for this.

I was hoping that this was going to be in the vein of the cancelled 1313 game exploring the seedy side of the Star Wars universe in all its 15-18 certificate glory.

Thinking Deadwood in star wars it would be an interesting watch.

If this turns into an episodic Mandalorian turns up to help people a la one man A-Team with PG violence then I doubt it will go beyond a season especially at 10 million an episode

Fingers crossed that its going to be good

Ashoka could be around but who should play her?

Favreau & Filoni's involvement is a good sign, & that armour looks cool no matter what colour you paint it.

I just hope it's not as dull as the Mandalorian arc in Rebels, which seemed to go on forever...

I would have no issue with the current voice of Asokha playing her:

What's worth more to them? Ultimately Disney just want more and money money to satisfy the shareholders. I guess with TV you can make more in the long run with selling to other networks around the world and syndication etc.

Sounds crap, if he had lived after Rogue One yes by all means but another prequel where we know where the character is going to end up no thanks.

Also if this show is aimed at kids I don't know what Disney is thinking, he did shoot that unarmed guy in Rogue One not exactly a role model.

I'm guessing that they need to stick some decent content on this service or nobody is going to subscribe just to want the 7D and Henry Hugglemonster 24/7.

Hence what they're doing with the Trek stuff.
