Jon Favreau to executive produce and write new live action Star Wars show

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.

I'm just pissed that I'm going to have to get a subscription to the shitty new Disney platform just to watch all these shows. :x

If you are a Star Wars fan near London and also a gamer it's an absolute must.


Isn't it ridiculously expensive?

Yeah that's probably cheaper than 2 tickets to an IMAX.

Just to make sure everyone takes care on the internet, The Last Jedi is now out there in 1080p, with the bonus disc (deleted scenes/featurettes), too.

Kind of wish Disney would learn that holding back the bluray release of a film doesn't do them any favours.

I've not seen the film at all, and I didn't like the original so I won't be buying it which is a shame as I bet it looks great.

Wowsers, thanks for the warning Frank. I'll do my best to steer clear.
Can someone PM me some links so I can tell which ones to avoid
