Star Wars: The Acolyte is currently in the midst of releasing new episodes on Disney+, but it’s not the only new Lucasfilm project to look forward to. Star Wars: Skeleton Crew stars Jude Law and Kerry Condon, and it’s expected to debut on the streamer later this year. The show was created and executive produced by Jon Watts, who is best known for directing the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man films. Watts is expected to helm an episode of the series, but he’s not the only name on the list. It was previously reported that the Oscar-winning directors of Everything Everywhere All At Once, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert AKA The Daniels, will be helming an episode of Skeleton Crew in addition to David Lowery (The Green Knight), Jake Schreier (Beef), and Lee Isaac Chung (Minari). During a recent interview with Collider, Bryce Dallas Howard confirmed she will also be directing an episode of Skeleton Crew.

“Well, I wish! So, what I’ll say is that I’m doing an episode of Skeleton Crew, which I’m super excited about,” Howard shared. “I went to college with Jon Watts and his writing partner in this, Chris Ford. And so, that was very exciting and getting to do that.”

Skeleton Crew will follow a ragtag group of lost kids trying to find their way home. It will star Jude Law in a significant, but mysterious role.

“Jon Watts came to me, very much wanting to do a sort of Goonies in Star Wars,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy exclusively told ComicBook at Star Wars Celebration last year. “Needless to say, I’m going to say yes. And so it’s just evolved out of that kind of enthusiasm in wanting to tell stories in this space.”
